Nursery - Interested in joining our Nursery?
We will be updating this page with information for anyone interested in their child starting our Nursery in September 2023, and the Parents/Carers of children who already have a confirmed space with us.
We currently still have a waiting list for Easter 2022 start!
If you are interested in finding out more about our Nursery, please email email@example.com and Mrs Kate Moore, Business Support for Nursery, will be happy to assist or put you in touch with Mrs Hayes, our Early Years Lead.
Our usual process is to offer a tour of the Nursery to enable Parents/Carers to see the space and ask any questions they may have. However, during the current situation, this is not possible, and we are working on ways that we can offer as much support as possible to potential new children and their families.
The 'Introduction' tab will give you an insight into the ethos of our nursery and the staff that work with the children.
Please see our 'Nursery Blog' tab for examples of activities the children are involved in within our setting. Nursery Blog
