St Georges Church School Nursery aims to provide a welcoming, inclusive, stimulating environment where children feel secure and happy to achieve their full potential. With our setting being led by an Early Years graduate and assisted by Level 3 Early Years practitioners, we provide a highly skilled, broad & balanced provision based on the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum that is sensitive to the individual needs of the children.
We provide full day child care for children aged 2 - 4 years old 7.30 am – 3.30 pm Monday – Friday during term-times. Flexible sessions are available; all day, all mornings, afternoons, lunchtimes or a mixture of sessions. We offer 15 or 30 funded hours depending on your eligibility, with the opportunity to top-up sessions at a set hourly rate. Please visit the Childcare Choices website for more information or to check your eligibility on
Having a wonderful purpose-built, open planned, indoor environment with direct access to a large enclosed outdoor area allows children to have free flow indoor and outdoor play. Our environment is reflective of the children’s interests, abilities and needs as well as the Nursery’s Christian ethos. By regularly reviewing and updating our environment, we offer a creative & stimulating continuous provision which enables us to deliver the best possible education and care for the children in our Nursery. Being part of an inclusive school, we also benefit from being involved with school events and have access to the wider school’s facilities and teaching staff which aids the transition your child will make when they move into a Reception setting.
Each child is inducted into our setting based on their individual needs and this usually beings by visiting your child in their home environment and by taking the time to get to know them and their family. We understand the important role parents & carers play in their children’s development and we endeavour to build positive working partnerships.

* New Nursery Breakfast Club *
We are very excited to announce that due to recent parental feedback, Nursery has extended their provision to include a breakfast club. This pre-booked, daily breakfast session starts at 7.30 a.m. and is available to 2 - 4 year old's at our current hourly rate of £4.25 (please note our hourly rate is reviewed annually).
Our breakfast club is led by either Mrs Mogg or Miss Bavin and the children can choose from a variety of healthy breakfast food along with a selection of fun activities. Like our lunch sessions, the children enjoy their meal time together and are encouraged to develop their independence skills.
If you would like more information or to book your child in to our breakfast club, please speak to Mrs Mogg in the Nursery or Mrs Andrews in the school office.
At St. Georges Church Nursery we use an online system called ‘Tapestry’ to record, track and share children's learning journals with their parent/ carers. This application enables staff to take photographs, videos and make written observations of the activities the children do at Nursery. Parent / carers have access to their child's learning journal via a personal password protected login and they are encouraged to add their own comments and photos from home to their child's journal. These can be photos from a day out, a recent achievement, a current interest or them playing with their favourite toy.
We aim to do several observations each half term and these may be linked to the children's individual next steps. We also share ideas with parent/carers to enable the support of the children's next steps at home. This helps to provide a strong partnership with parents as information on the children's learning & development is shared both from parent / carers and staff.
