Nightingale Nursery

Behind our joyful atmosphere conceals a meticulous approach to ensuring the academic development and personal wellbeing of every child. We provide a careful balance of structured learning and child-initiated play, where young ones enjoy learning and progress individually. Our team of energetic and experienced childcare professionals and teachers provide the best possible care, enabling children to settle quickly and feel safe and secure.

From the day a child joins us, we help prepare them for school, ensuring our nursery children are Reception ready with reading, writing, phonics and Mathematics above age-related expectations. With our Reception class just next door to our self-contained Early Years Department, the transition from nursery to school couldn’t be smoother.
