Aspiration, Opportunity, Success

Nursery

We aim to create a welcoming and happy environment for all children to play and learn. We want all children to feel welcome, confident and comfortable within our setting. We also want to make them aware of the rest of the school, and to help them feel comfortable within the larger school community.

 

Our Nursery at St Dennis caters for 2 to 4 year old children and focuses on Teaching and Learning through play, with a Teacher and Nursery Nurse.

 

Nursery children can attend for 15 funded hours each week. With an additional 15 funded hours subject to eligibility.
