Ivy House School Nursery

Ivy House School operates an on-site nursery school welcoming girls and boys aged two-and-a-half to four. Our Nursery offers a high-quality learning environment led by early years practitioners and fully qualified teachers.

The pre-school curriculum follows the statutory framework set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage which emphasises both adult and child-led activities. Particular focus is given to communication and language, physical and emotional development. Our provision aims to build knowledge, skills, and confidence so that children are well-equipped to transfer into a full-time prep school day by the time they reach four years of age.

Priority consideration will be given to parents who wish their sons and daughters to join Reception classes at Ivy House School. Families are warmly invited to visit Ivy House to meet the Head and staff, who look forward to showing prospective parents the facilities and to sharing their education vision for the nursery.
