Nursery

About Our Nursery

Clarendon Primary School Nursery was established in April 2016 to provide care and education for children aged 2 to 5 years old. We offer a diverse and inspirational curriculum to the children to ensure learning is stimulating and fun. It offers a playbased curriculum and the experiences required to ensure the expectations of the Government’s Early Years Foundation (EYFS) framework are met.

Our Nursery setting is a warm and welcoming environment which supports the transition from home to nursery and from nursery to school. We believe that with our extensive range of indoor and outdoor facilities, along with the care and nurturing support provided by our staff, children will enjoy coming to nursery each day to learn and play alongside other children. Within the Nursery we offer a range of extra-curricular activities which include music and dance classes and story time in the school library as well as PE and Computer lessons. We also provide an excellent nutritionally balanced menu prepared by our school chef.
