Nursery Class

St Anthony’s School Nursery Class, opened in September 2018, is a thriving, energetic, fun learning environment catering for children aged 2-4 years old. We offer a warm, stimulating setting for your child, supporting the transition from nursery to school.


We pride ourselves on high quality care, meeting the specific needs of each child while considering their capabilities, character and developmental background. We acknowledge the uniqueness of every child, support their learning while practicing inclusiveness. All our Nursery practitioners are trained to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we put a strong emphasis on learning through play.


There is a fun and interesting outdoor space with equipment which the children use every day and can practice using their motor, coordination and planning skills. Our children also have the opportunity to use the fantastic Jungle Gym in the safe and secure, main School Playground which they absolutely love!


If your child is with us for the full day, for a small fee, we provide an excellent nutritionally-balanced lunch using fresh ingredients prepared by our school catering company, Nourish.  Alternatively, you can provide your child with a packed lunch. In addition, there are healthy snacks (raw fruit or veg) available for the children to eat freely during the day.

Mon-Fri: Morning Session: 9 – 12
