About Our Nursery School
Blagdon Nursery School is a large, Local Authority Nursery School for children aged 3 to 5 years old, with 160 part-time places. We were last judged Outstanding by OFSTED in October 2014.
We offer a broad and balanced provision following the Foundation stage curriculum within 3 classes and also in our extensive grounds.
All staff are qualified as teachers or early years practitioners. Each child has their own Key Worker who works in partnership with the parents to ensure the best outcomes for the children.
We have a well-developed Special Needs policy and practice, ensuring early identification, support, planning and evaluation. Families are closely involved and work with the Centre or outside professionals, where needed.
We are constantly developing the Centre to maximise its potential as a learning environment.
Children are registered on the waiting list at the age of two years and are admitted as soon after their third birthday as we have space for them.
We also offer extended facilities. We have a breakfast and after school club and offer afternoon childcare for children attending the Nursery in the mornings. We also run a Holiday Club for children aged 3-5 for a week at Easter and during the summer holidays. These extra facilities are provided at a small charge to parents.
