St Peter’s School Nursery Ltd is a not for profit company (limited by guarantee) owned by the Governing body of St Peter’s Church of England Primary School and run by the Directors on its behalf.
The Nursery is situated in purpose built premises (with disabled access) within the school grounds. It provides children with a bright, clean, well equipped base from which to start their learning journey. The Nursery also has the benefit of sharing resources with the School such as access to playgrounds; school hall (for indoor activities and productions to parents) and Coronation Gardens.
Our Nursery Supervisor heads up a qualified; dedicated and professional staff team. One of the team will be allocated as your child’s Keyworker. They will be responsible for monitoring your child’s learning and development.
All of our sessions consist of structured activities combined with times of “free play” where your child gets to choose what they do. We have a vast range of indoor and outdoor equipment and resources and also access to all of the resources within St Peter’s School. This enables us to provide a rich variety of activities which encourages your child’s natural curiosity: they will be learning without even realising it!
We accept children from the age of 2 up until school age and are happy to accept children in nappies.
The government is now funding 30 hours a week for some children, please see the guidance on www.gov.uk. All children aged 3 and over are eligible for government funded Nursery sessions up to a maximum of 15 hours per week. Please speak to us if you need to ascertain the precise term your child will be eligible for funding.
Before your child starts you are welcome to come in together for a free “taster” session. This lets you both see what goes on during a typical Nursery session, and gives you a chance to see how your child will adapt to starting with us.
We can also care for your child from 07:30 through to 18:00 during term time, see Wrap Around Care
