Welcome to Batford Nursery School

Batford Nursery School is a busy, lively and exciting place for children to learn. Our aim is to provide children with an outstanding early start to their education and make their time here as happy and successful as possible. Starting nursery school is an exciting and important event for every young child and his or her parents so we hope that we can work together to make this experience a positive and happy start to the beginning of your child’s school life.

This outstanding school benefits from highly qualified and very experienced teachers, early years practitioners and support staff, who value education in the early years and want to make your child’s experience at Batford a happy and successful one.

The nursery school is well equipped and the staff work tirelessly to enhance learning experiences for the children. Drawing on their observations of the children’s interests and fascinations, they sensitively extend learning and plan for the next steps so that children have every opportunity to make excellent progress.

Our Aims

  • To provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment.
  • To encourage independence through active learning.
  • To make a positive contribution to children’s early development, enabling them to build on this foundation throughout their lives.

We are committed to:

  • The development of children’s social and spiritual growth.
  • Fostering in our children a thoughtful and caring attitude towards each other and to the environment.
  • The principles of equal opportunities and inclusion for all.

We believe that every child matters and should be treated as an individual.
