St Stephen's Nursery

Maintained Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery School.  We have maintained our Ofsted “Outstanding” grade since 2011, the most recent report being in 2018.  Our 2018 inspection letter says “staff have an exceptional understanding of children’s early development and provide excellent opportunities across all areas of learning.”

We have one full time class for three to four year olds in nursery where children attend the whole day.  Parents are eligible for this if they are both working.  The other two rooms for three to four year old classes are part time where children attend for either a morning or an afternoon session.  All children can be registered and placed on the waiting list for a space in nursery after their second birthday.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we provide a rich and inclusive education for all children.  Each individual child has a key person and is therefore given the attention and support they need in order to reach their potential.  All children make excellent progress; they gain confidence and develop a positive attitude towards learning which will stay with them throughout their years in education and beyond.

At St Stephen’s we work with children aged two, three and four years old.  Our two year old are fully integrated into the nursery alongside the three and four year olds.  All the children have access to a large outdoor space with opportunities to explore.  Our curriculum brings out an excitement and curiosity for learning in all children.
