Welcome to our Nursery

At Woodland Nursery at St Edmund’s, we inspire children to love learning, be creative in everything they do, and be considerate of others.

Woodland Nursery at St Edmund’s has two classes:

Butterflies (2 – 3 years) and;
Ladybirds (3 – 4 years).

We are ambitious for our pupils, and provide a kind, caring and supportive environment in which their confidence can grow and their talents thrive. Learning here is dynamic, varied and fun, with children encouraged to be active in lessons – responding to challenges and solving problems.

We offer a year-round provision (49 weeks of the year) with early start and late stay available from 7.30am-6pm.

"Learning at St Edmund’s is interactive, varied and fun. We focus on the needs of the individual children, and ensure they are given the time and space to develop their creative and academic capabilities”

Head of Nursery and Pre-Prep, Sarah Bartholomew.
