Nursery (Early Years Foundation Stage)

Prestbury Church of England Primary School has a long history from 1720. We are proud of our school and all that we are able to offer.

We are especially fortunate to have a Nursery unit on site, which was a gift to the school, in 1972 from the Koopman family in memory of their daughter, Marijke.

Our Nursery is different to a Pre School as it is a legal requirement to have a qualified teacher in a maintained Nursery. As well as a focus on social, physical and language development, there is a clear learning focus to all that takes place and as we have the same group of children 5 sessions a week, we are able to have a structured and clear approach to the teaching of phonics. The progress children make in our nursery, both socially and academically, is excellent and this ensures that the children have built a very strong foundation before starting school.

The Nursery is staffed by a teacher and two teaching assistants. Admission to the Nursery is arranged the school term after the child’s third birthday, according to places being available, and is for either five mornings or five afternoons each week. Additional sessions may also be available.
