Our Nursery

Welcome to St Andrew's Nursery.

We have a large Nursery Unit offering a range of flexible places for 3 and 4 year old children. These include free 15 hour morning or afternoon places, as well as 30 hour free childcare for eligible families. 30 hour childcare is equivalent to a full time Nursery place (term time only). Breakfast Club and After School Club are available for children with full time places. Please click on the link for further details: 


Our EYFS Lead is Miss Wheatley, Nursery Teacher is Mrs Dubowski, supported by our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Turner, Mrs Gelsthorpe and Mrs Bingham.


We provide excellent professional education, support and care through a play-based, child-centred approach to learning. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum supported by Development Matters.  All our children are respected and their individuality and their potential is recognised, valued and nurtured.  At  St Andrew's C of E Nursery we strive to provide children with a caring and safe environment to grow, learn and have fun. Our curriculum is designed to nurture the many skills that children are born with. We integrate academic, social, emotional, physical and creative development through a child-centred approach to learning. Our qualified staff provide children with opportunities to learn at their own pace to help them to become responsible and to promote self-confidence, self awareness and independence. Our intent is to provide our children with a creative, captivating and challenging curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow.
