Our Nursery Group

At The Commons Pre-School we offer children the opportunity to stay with us for their Nursery Year and join our ‘Nursery Group’. Increasingly families are choosing this option as an alternative to the traditional Maintained Nursery School option, their reasons include:

  • Consistency for both children & their families
  • We follow the same Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum as Maintained Nursery Schools
  • We have a high staff:child ratio
  • We offer a highly nurturing environment
  • We are an established setting with experienced, qualified staff team and a welcoming, friendly feel
  • Our communication goes ‘above & beyond’ expectation with our Co-owners contactable ‘out of hours’
  • We are ‘Outstanding’, as graded by Ofsted in 2011, 2016 & 2020
  • We offer a comprehensive wrap-around service; we are open from 07:40 – 18:00 every day
  • Flexibility
  • We offer 3 & 4 year old funded places (Universal & 30 hours)
  • We specialise in Early Education

We are part of a bigger group of Pre-Schools including Attimore Barn Pre-School, Hardings Nursery & Pre-school & Knightsfield Pre-schoolers, all of which have very good reputations for quality & service locally
Gaining a place at a School Nursery does not guarantee you a place at that school for Reception
However, this decision is as individual as each family and if you chose to move to a local Nursery School, we will support that decision working closely with you & the Nursery School to ensure a smooth transition.
