Nursery

Wellingborough School Nursery is a spacious, indoor and outdoor enabling environment that is a secure and creative place for the start of your child’s learning journey. 

Through gentle guidance our experienced staff will support your child to develop positive relationships and behaviours. They will develop the confidence to talk about their own interests and knowledge and become happy, active learners who are school ready by the end of the year. We also place great importance on building a strong partnership with parents.

We actively support self-expression and imagination with a structured timetable of learning through play, covering the prime and specific areas of the Early Years Framework. We place great emphasis on the development of phonics, writing and mathematical skills using a combination of traditional and technological approaches.

With a high adult to child ratio, specialist dance and music lessons, as well as exciting Forest School trips, your child will be ready for Reception the following year.

The Nursery day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:30 pm. We also offer a Breakfast Club from 7:45 am and an After-School Club until 6:00 pm. (There is a small extra charge for Breakfast and After-School Clubs).

We offer full-time and part-time places at the Nursery:

  • Full day 9:00 am to 3:30 pm
  • Part-time 9:00 am to 12:30pm (including lunch)

Wellingborough School participates in the Local Education Authority Early Years Funding for 3-4 year olds. To be eligible, children need to attend 15 hours or more per week. We hope that all children will be full time by the Summer Term in preparation for Reception.
