Joining The Nursery

Our work with the individual is at the heart of our practice

The Nursery at St Margaret’s is a term time nursery for children from 2 to 4. Children enjoy nursery life during their pre-school years, before they start in Reception.

Based in a beautiful, light and spacious setting, children immerse themselves in learning through play. 

The EYFS curriculum informs our practice and children are supported to progress across all areas of learning, as well as taking part in outdoor education, with plenty of time and space to be outside.

The core day is 8am to 4pm, with drop-off available from 7.30am and wraparound care available from 4pm to 6pm (5pm on Friday).

During initial meetings with the Nursery Manager and team, we spend time getting to know more about your child, including developmental milestones, the food your child eats and any other important medical information to ensure they settle and flourish here at St Margaret’s.
