stgeorgesnurseryA good quality nursery education provides a gentle introduction to the world of school. At St George’s Nursery we aim to provide the best possible start at school: educational excellence inside and outside the classroom.

Outdoor learning, with its practical hands-on approach to discovery in the outdoor environment, is a vital component of learning in our Nursery. Girls and boys have plenty of outdoor space where they can play in trees, plant vegetables and learn by exploring the world which they inhabit. Our extensive grounds, including five adventure areas, (fantastical forest, wild wood, secret garden and fort, Junior School playground and school playing fields), offer very many opportunities for imaginative role-play, adventure play and environmental learning. Children thrive on fresh air and are stimulated by their natural surroundings. These experiences provide an outdoor extension to what is learnt inside.

If you would like to find out more, join us at our Fantastical Nursery Open Morning on Saturday 17 May, from 9.30 am – 11.00 am, when you can visit the Nursery and its fantastical forest, and meet with and talk to teaching staff. The morning will include a short talk by Anne Everest, Head of St George’s, and Paula Dennis, Head of Nursery, about the importance of a good quality pre-school education, and our provision for outdoor education. There will be a range of fun activities on offer for nursery aged children including storytelling with “Princess Poppy” author, Janey Jones, as well as activities in art and sport.
