'The overall quality and standards of the EYFS are outstanding. All children including the youngest, the more able and those with SEND, make excellent progress in their learning and development relative to their starting points and are all very well prepared for the next stage of their education.'
Exceptional OFFERING, LOCATION AND facilities
Open 50 weeks a year from 8.00am to 6.00pm, the Nursery provides a superb wrap-around care service. Timetable-based sessions run for 34 weeks of the year and we offer a holiday club for 16 weeks. Children may join at any time during the academic year, making starting easy and flexible.
Set within the 12 acre site of St Andrew’s Prep, specialist staff have the joy of teaching the Nursery children several areas of the curriculum using the wider school’s facilities, including the Sports Hall, heated swimming pool, large sports’ field with recently re-laid tennis courts, drama studio music block and a dedicated dance studio. They also take advantage of the well-hidden and quite beautiful Forest School.
The Nursery has the great privilege of direct access to areas of outstanding natural beauty, with the Sussex Downs on our doorstep, local beaches and our very own Forest School and we take full advantage of these throughout the year.
Being housed in the same building as the Reception class, Pre-School children join forces with the Reception children for many exciting activities throughout the year. This prepares the children for a seamless transition on the next step of their education, whether it be here at St Andrew’s Pre-Prep or at another school.
