Greatstone Nursery is a 52 place purpose built nursery accommodating children from 2 years old until school starting age. The Nursery has a full time teacher who, along with the nursery manager is responsible for the daily running of the nursery. Each room has qualified nursery assistants who, together with the teacher and manager work together to provide a wide range of challenges and experiences.
The toddler room is for 2 -3 year olds and the preschool room is for children who will be turning 4 within that academic year. In both rooms there is a play based environment however, within the pre school room, the amount of teacher led sessions will gradually increase in order to prepare children for the transition into Reception. There is good transition between the two classrooms, as well as plenty of opportunity for children to visit the reception classes to ensure an equally smooth transition into Greatstone Primary School.
