We are able to warmly welcome your son or daughter to Claires Court from the school term in which they turn three years old.
We have three rooms with a maximum of 16 children in a class. Each class is led by a Class Leader and one or more, Nursery Assistants. We have a small staff to child ration so that your child has the perfect environment to flourish and get ready for school.
When joining Claires Court, each child will be allocated a nominated key worker who will support your child in settling in, learning and keep you informed. Our highly qualified and experienced staff understand joining the school at Nursery is not only an exciting milestone for your child but also for you, their parents. We work hard to get to know your family, creating a bond and understanding for both parents and child.
We are always happy to have a chat at the end of the day, or if you need time to talk something through. Phone calls or one-to-one appointments can easily be arranged.

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. Children enjoy adult led activities working either one-to-one or in small groups.
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.
Creative play, pond dipping, exploration of fine/large motor skills, music, and physical education are all activities that take place in the afternoon and vary term by term.
MOVING ON TO SCHOOL
Pupils moving on from Claires Court Nursery are guaranteed a Reception Class place in Claires Court Junior Girls or Junior Boys*. Please inform us of your intentions at registration, so we can manage your child’s development and help prepare them for the future. We'd love for you to be part of the Claire Court community and welcome any questions you may have, as well as the opportunity to meet the Heads.
