Mayfield Nursery is a bright, friendly and happy place to learn and play.  We’re lucky to have a large outside play area and a very well equipped nursery. 

The nursery is staffed by a Nursery Teacher, a Nursery Nurse and other support staff when necessary.

Children in Nursery follow activities outlined in the Foundation Stage Curriculum which charts key developmental points in a child’s learning.  Find more information on the Foundation Stage Curriculum here.

The Nursery unit has places for 25 FTE pupils.  We offer parents the option of 15 or 30 funded hours from the September after their child's third birthday.
