The nursery has exclusive use of a large classroom including toilets and a private outdoor space (partly covered giving all day access to the outdoors). In addition children have access to the Eco – garden and classroom, 2 large playgrounds and school facilities including ICT suite, library and large airy halls.

All our meals are freshly prepared on the premises using locally sourced ingredients where appropriate and all nursery children have a school lunch with staff members.

We encourage all children to have a school lunch unless your child has a diet that cannot be catered for by the school kitchen.

An experienced fully qualified teacher leads the nursery team which also includes two qualified NNEB nursery nurses.

Our school keeps school holidays but we can make you aware of summer play schemes running in the local area.

If you are interested in a place for your child, we encourage you to visit the school – please contact the school office for visit dates
