St Mary Magdalen’s Nursery

We offer places for children from the term after they turn 3 years old.

The nursery staff include the Class teacher, and a very experienced Nursery Nurse. We design an engaging and fun curriculum which works within the statutory Early Years Framework. Children are given a wide range of learning opportunities through a mixture of free play, guided activities and immersive experiences.  

As the child’s primary educator, parents/ carers are warmly invited to participate fully in nursery life. We work in close partnership and aim to build strong links on which the foundations of their school journey are built. Our nursery is an integral part of the school and nursery children often participate in fun, whole-school events, such as Nativity plays, sports events and PTA run activities.

Working parents of three or four year olds are entitled to 30 hours per week nursery places in our setting free of charge. Please click the link below for further details.
