Aldbury C of E Primary and Nursery School



We are delighted to welcome new children to our Nursery at Aldbury Primary School. 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.  



Maintained schools in Hertfordshire are now responsible for the admissions of children to Nursery.

If your child was born between 1st September 2020 and 31st August 2021, you will be able to make an application for a Nursery place to start in September 2024.

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

Provisional applications for places in September 2024 are open - please contact the school office for more information.


If you are looking for a space in our current Nursery class please contact the school office.

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.
