Our Nursery

Our Nursery has 26 full time places. The main emphasis is on the importance of learning through play. The children develop skills, understanding and attitudes through engaging in a variety of fun and stimulating experiences.

There is a focus on:
- Developing independence;
- Encouraging creativity;
- Challenging and supporting;
- Creating life-long learning.

We adhere to the Pre-School Curricular Guidance as set out by the Department of Education, 2018.

The Nursery consists of a bright spacious area that is equipped with a wide range of fun and educational resources and a quiet room with an interactive whiteboard. The outdoor environment in the Nursery has a dedicated hardcore and grass area, equipped with a climbing frame, woodland trail, sandpit and a covered area for wet day play. Nursery children also make regular use of a computer and iPads to enhance their learning.

Nursery School begins at 9am and ends at 1.30pm. The children receive a healthy break and dinners are provided from the school kitchen.

Throughout the year the children and parents will participate in a variety of events both locally and further away. In recent years, the Nursery children and their parents have enjoyed dressing up for our ‘Big Bedtime Read’ pyjama party, a ‘stay and read’ fairy tale party and a minibeast themed ‘stay and play’ session. Children have enjoyed visits from Jo-Jingles and Mr Hullabaloo Chilldren's Interactive Theatre Company. Places visited include W5’s Winter Wonderland, Castle Espie, Plant and Play and the Gruffalo Trail.
