At Holy Trinity Nursery we pride ourselves on offering caring and nurturing environment for all of the children in our nursery. We appreciate the challenges faced by parents to leave their children at nursery, and we have used our own experiences to ensure our nursery is an environment where children feel welcome and safe.

We value the great relationships we build with parents and carers. We work in partnership with families and keep them informed of their child’s progress. Our friendly Nursery staff  are always happy to talk with parents regarding any issues or concerns.

We take children from three years until they leave for school after their fourth birthday – after which they go directly into the Reception class at Holy Trinity. Friends they make in our Nursery could be friends for life.

We have a wonderful indoor and outdoor environment at Holy Trinity Nursery. The rooms are full of educational and exciting things to choose from, the children have the freedom to self-select. The children also have access to a wide range of painting, sand, water and other art materials. There is a reading corner and here the children can snuggle up and enjoy a variety of books both on their own (while still supervised) for some quiet time and with our members of staff. We  have morning and afternoon snacks available with milk or water and fresh fruit and veg on hand to help fuel their imaginations.

We encourage the children to become more independent through self-managed activities as part of day-to-day play, such as dressing up, ‘cooking’ in the play kitchen and developing their independence skills. Messy play, hide and seek and memory games  are also introduced. Safely managed and supervised, such activities nevertheless encourage respect, co-operation and personal choice and of course, they’re lots and lots of fun!

Our morning sessions run from 8.45 until 11.45 and afternoon sessions run from 12.15 until 3.15. If your child attends for a full day they may have their lunch at Holy Trinity alongside their Nursery classmates.
