We will welcome your child to Claires Court from the term in which they are three years old.
We have three rooms with up to 16 children in each class. Each class is led by a Class Leader and at least one Nursery Assistant. Our qualified and experienced staff will get to know you and your child as individuals, creating a bond and understanding both your needs, at this first stage of their education.

A day in Nursery
These sessions are structured with gym, music, assemblies and a range of ‘free play’ activities including role play, painting and modelling. Pupils enjoy adult led activities, working either one to one or in small groups. Lunchtime and afternoon sessions are optional.
During lunchtime sessions children are supervised while eating a hot lunch prepared on site or a packed lunch from home*.
For the hot lunch there is a charge. Menus can be found here.
*During the Covid-19 pandemic, hot prepared lunches may be subject to change and during lunchtime sessions children are supervised while eating a packed lunch from home.
There is a vibrant activities programme for those children who stay for the afternoon sessions. These vary from term to term and can include creative play, natural exploration, fine/large motor skills, music and movement, and happy and healthy.
Keeping you informed
Each child has a nominated key worker who will keep you informed of your child’s activities. We capture and observe your child on the go, and every half term via email we share their activities and achievements, through photos and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Statements.
We are always happy to have a quick chat if something is concerning you, or if you need time to talk something through a one to one appointment can easily be arranged.
MOVING ON TO SCHOOL
Pupils moving on from Claires Court Nursery/Transition are guaranteed a Reception Class place in Claires Court Junior Girls or Junior Boys (subject to successful assessment by the Head, please see our admissions policy
). Please inform us of your intentions at registration, so we can manage your child’s development and help prepare them for the future.
