Spring Meadow Nursery

Nursery funded education is available free from the term after your child’s third birthday.

“At Spring Meadow Nursery we know that these early years form the crucial foundation for learning throughout childhood and beyond. We have a passion for ensuring that our provision is planned and set-up to reflect how young children learn, to include everything that young children enjoy and to contain all the elements of early learning that young children need. Together these will ensure that the foundation is strong and children are then ready for the next stage in their learning journey.”



We offer morning sessions or afternoon sessions only, for the Universal Nursery-Funded 15 hours per week:

  • Morning sessions are: 8.45am – 11.45am
  • Afternoon sessions are: 12.30 – 3.30pm

We may also be able to offer extended provision for children who wish to join the Breakfast Club (for Morning Nursery children) or the ‘Stay and Play’ Afterschool Club for afternoon children. There is a charge for these clubs.

  2. Nursery Poem

    Child’s play  – a poem to illustrate our philosophy in Nursery

    Oh, what a busy morning!
    I’ve been playing with the dough
    And, with a little help, upon a card
    I learned to sew.


    I helped my friend, ‘the doctor’
    to perform an operation,
    then fixed the track together for
    my train and built a station.


    I popped inside the home corner,
    to make a cup of tea
    and stood beside the cooker making lunch for
    twenty three!


    I completed three whole jigsaws and
    played a new board game
    And had a turn on all the bikes,
    the slide and climbing frame.


    I handed round the biscuits at
    ‘milk and biscuits’ time,
    Then I listened to the story and sang
    a nursery rhyme.


    But now the morning’s over and the
    parents are all waiting.
    I hope none of them say,
