All Saints Nursery & Preschool
In 2019 All Saints opened it's Nursery and Preschool provision. Based at the church the Nursery classroom boasts superb indoor and outdoor facilities. Each morning our teacher led nursery class enjoy a variety of activities which stimulate learning to ensure our children have a great start to their educational journey through primary school. We have designed a curriculum which focuses on the development of key skills which prepare children to be school ready. We have decided on a low tech approach. There are no computers or interactive whiteboards as we focus on language and communication skills and resources are carefully selected to develop gross and fine motor skills.
The fun continues in the afternoon in our preschool sessions led by Mrs Neill. Parents wishing to access a full time provision can do so (subject to availability of spaces).
Morning Session – 9:00am to 12:00pm
Full Day – 9:00am to 3:00pm
Afternoon Session - 12:00pm - 3:00pm (Pre-School & Wraparound Sessions; please ask for further details)
Morning sessions are based at Saint Anne and All Saints Church with the children returning to the main school for lunch at 11.45am.
Children must be over 3 years old to join our nursery. If you are not eligible for funding, there is the option to pay for sessions. Tax-Free childcare can be used to help with these costs.
We have three nursery admissions a year, September, January and April, based on space availability.
The closing dates for admissions are:
1st June (September Admissions)

Applications will be assessed as per the nursery admissions criteria.
