Welcome to Nursery

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage. Nursery is the first step on a wonderful journey through St Patrick’s. In our Nursery the children develop and learn how to become independent learners and challenge themselves everyday. We have an amazing learning environment indoors and outdoors which the children use daily for play, learning and adult and child led activities.

Nursery offers morning, afternoon and 30 hours provision. (30 hours provision is for working parents – please speak to a member of staff about eligibility)

Morning times are 8.30-11.30

Afternoon times are 12.15 – 3.15

30 hours provision is from 8.30-3.15.Β  Children stay for lunch in nursery and can bring their own packed lunch or have a school dinner at Β£2.20 per day.Β  There is also a cost of Β£20 per week for the 30 hour provision.

We share the message from St Luke:

‘And the child grew strong in spirit’ Luke 1.80

The nursery is lead by Mrs Kennedy and our fantastic nursery nurses Miss Matthews and Mrs McNamee.
