Sandy Hill Nursery
At Sandy Hill Nursery we are proud to provide high-quality school-based provision in a caring and stimulating learning environment. We provide Nursery sessions for children aged 3-4 years.
We are proud to offer effective school-based provision at Sandy Hill Nursery. School-based provision includes a more structured approach to teaching Phonics, Maths and Topic related knowledge and understanding. Our provision and learning environment is planned for effectively to ensure that the children can experience the best quality pre-school learning in order to promote school readiness.
We offer an option of 5 morning or 5 afternoon sessions to maximise your child’s opportunity to learn in a playful school-based learning environment. We welcome new children into our Nursery twice a year with an intake in September and another in January. Attending a school-based Nursery bridges the gap between a pre-school setting and school and has been proven to aid smoother transitions and better outcomes for pupils.
Our Nursery staff are dedicated to supporting children to reach their full potential and to become independent learners.
