Welcome to the Nursery
In many ways the Nursery is the jewel in the EA crown. Housed in a purpose-built, award winning, building since 2009 our highly experienced and motivated team of Early Years Practitioners work alongside our Nursery Teachers and specialist French, PE and Music specialists to give our children the best possible start on their academic journey.
Our Nursery curriculum is based on experiential learning through play and every aspect of Nursery life was rated as ‘Excellent’ against every quality indicator by the Care Inspectorate when they last visited.
Our outdoor provision is particularly impressive; both in terms of our formal play areas and our gardening plots and we are constantly innovating to ensure that we remain well ahead of other schools in terms of outdoor learning in the Early Years.
Parents can have peace of mind that each child’s transition from home life to formal school takes place in a warm, caring environment where the need of each individual child is of paramount importance.
Prospective Parents should be aware that interest in admission to our Nursery is very high. As places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis early registration is recommended.
The Nursery Team cares deeply for every child and it is a privilege to play our part in shaping these valuable years in their development.
