Battle Abbey Nursery

MEET_THE_NURS_HEAD-300x300“Welcome to Battle Abbey School Nursery where happy children thrive in our welcoming, stimulating and caring environmentWe strive to meet the individual needs of every child and our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff work closely in partnership with parents to ensure the children enjoy and achieve the best outcomes from their time with us.   Children may join us from the age of two years old and quickly settle in our welcoming, fun and well resourced Nursery. The Oaks and Reception classes enjoy a weekly Forest School session led by our own qualified Forest School Leader to encourage a love of nature through opportunities to explore, investigate and play in a safe and secure environment. Our Oaks class transition to the Reception class is considered to be “seamless” as the children already feel part of the Battle Abbey School family and we focus on ensuring their Early Years Foundation Stage learning, confidence and skills provide the best springboard into school.

The Nursery enrols pupils automatically in an Online Learning Journal ‘Tapestry’ Programme, which allows parents and carers to regularly view updates on their child’s progress and activities at the Nursery. Please click here for an example page from our online tapestry.

What is an Online Learning Journal?

Battle Abbey School Nursery is an integral part of Battle Abbey School and enjoys the full range of their fantastic facilities which includes a wide variety of outdoor space for extensive learning and play opportunities, risk taking and exploration in a safe and supportive environment. The Prep school playing field is used for nature walks, outdoor games and our summer sports day. The Senior school welcomes us for the annual whole school photo, family days and other opportunities to explore this lovely historic site.

Some of our youngest children have joined us from our friendly Little Squirrels Parent and Toddler group which runs on Monday afternoons for children from birth to two years old.

Our lovely secure and dedicated garden has been recently updated to provide a soft play surface and nature area which offers lots of opportunities to play, have fun with friends, explore and learn with the support of our friendly, experienced staff.

We welcome visitors and would love to show you around to see for yourselves our welcoming environment that feels like a home from home.

Please contact us on 01424 213 283 or rapleyt@battleabbeyschool.com if you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit.”
