Welcome to the Airy Hill Nursery Page

We are very proud of our wonderful school nursery which has been established for two years.

We have two nursery classes:

Nursery 1 is a dedicated space for our two year olds offering a nurturing space for up to eight children

Nursery 2 is a larger area offering up to 24 places to 3 &4 year old children, broadening their experiences as they play, learn and prepare for school life.

We currently have spaces in our nurseries – please call the school office on 01947 602688 for further information and to arrange an informal visit.
