Welcome to St Mary’s Nursery website page.

Staff include Nursery Teacher Mrs Birt and our Nursery Assistant Mrs Denvir. 

At St Mary's Nursery we aim to provide an environment where your child will feel happy and secure.  We will offer them lots of opportunities in order for them to begin their educational journey, where they will learn, grow and begin to develop their full potential!

We aim to:

  • develop self-confidence, self-esteem and growing independence.
  • develop personal and social skills
  • develop a sense of responsibility and consideration for others.
  • encourage children to be inquisitive, explore and become actively involved in their learning both indoors and outside.
  • encourage children to express themselves creatively and imaginatively.
  • extend their thinking and problem solving skills.
  • develop a love and excitement of books, songs, rhymes and music.
  • have fun, while learning through play!

We hope you enjoy our page and seeing all the wonderful learning that takes place in Nursery.
