Pupil laughs


The youngest children in our school take their first steps in education in our exciting and vibrant Nursery. They enjoy all aspects of school life in a happy, caring and stimulating environment and they are given every opportunity to grow, develop and flourish.

Every child here at Blundell’s Nursery is unique, with their own interests, experiences and personal qualities. We work closely with parents to ensure the happiness and well-being of every child in our care. Children are able to grow in confidence and maturity within the secure family atmosphere of Blundell’s Prep school.

Our bright, spacious Nursery provides the most welcoming and engaging environment to make your child’s first experience at school happy and stimulating. Our dedicated staff are committed to providing a caring environment where high quality play and education are used to encourage your child’s intellectual, physical, social and emotional development. Children learn best when they are having fun. Our children are given every opportunity to learn through a combination of structured play and inspirational teacher led activities in order to achieve the Early Learning Goals indentified within the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage.’

We offer a curriculum, which is based on children learning through planned, purposeful play-based activities. This allows children to become confident learners, exploring and investigating at their own pace through valuable first hand experiences.

Children in our Nursery have access to our secure outdoor play areas as well as our superb school grounds - perfect for woodland walks and observing changes in the weather and seasons.

The School day begins at 8.40am and finishes at 3.40pm. Parents who require an extended day for their child can use Rise and Shine which runs from 8am until 8.30am and our After School Club which runs from 3.45pm until 6.00pm. Many young children may attend Nursery on a part time basis and gradually increase their sessions each term if they wish. There is flexibility in the pattern of attendance and we try to accommodate every family’s needs.
