Our nursery is at the heart  of Dartford. Our Nursery offers both 30 hour and 15 hour provisions for children from 3 years old. For more information about our provision, please see our ‘Offer’ tab. We are attached to the main school with our own safe, outdoor play area. As part of the school, we are lucky enough to be able to enjoy the school facilities including the hall and the library.

Meeting individual needs of all children lies at the heart of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and we deliver personalised learning, development and care to help children get the best possible start in life. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum is planned in conjunction with the Primary Years Programme (PYP) for three and four year olds. This approach ensures a holistic approach that encompasses social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development. Please see our Curriculum page for more information on how we learn in Nursery.
