We are delighted to inform you that Nursery provision is now available at Aldbury.

We offer a safe and caring environment where children  experience a wide range of opportunities for educational and creative play, both indoors and outdoors.

 Our Nursery provision forms part of our Early Years Foundation Stage unit meaning they are taught in a mixed Nursery/Reception class by skilled and experienced professionals, including a qualified teacher.  



If your child was born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017, you will be able to make an application for a Nursery place to start in September 2020.

Children are accepted into Nursery the September before their fourth birthday.

Applications for places in September 2020 open on 3rd February 2020


We work closely with local schools who also have a Nursery to ensure that the process below  is the same in each school and parents receive consistent information.

Pupils in Nursery follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.

These include:


Three prime areas:
• Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED).
• Communication and Language (CL).
• Physical Development (PD).


Four specific areas:
• English.
• Mathematics.
• Understanding the World.
• Expressive Arts and Design.


Nursery pupils are involved in a wide range of topic-based activities which promote all areas of the Early Years Curriculum with a particular emphasis on personal, social and emotional development. Their learning is achieved through both adult led and child initiated experiences.
