Nursery

At Dartington C of E Primary School our vision is “Together We Grow, Together We Flourish’ which underpins the curriculum that we provide for our wonderful pupils. We believe that all of our children are unique and aspire for them to live their life to the fullest. Our children are safe and happy in our Nursery. They spend their days sharing, talking, singing, problem solving, being playful and questioning the world in which they live. Through play, they practice new skills, investigate the world around them and challenge themselves to succeed. Our team of expert practitioners nurture the children’s character, building the foundations of confidence, resilience and a love of learning.

Our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit is open between 9am and 3.00pm. During this time parents and carers may access up to 30 hours of free entitlement for Nursery aged (F1) children, if they meet the entitlement criteria.

Time slots are of no less than three hours in any one day, starting from 9am.

Children may order a school lunch at a charge of £2.40 per day or bring a packed lunch if their time falls during a lunch period.

In addition to the free entitlement parents and carers may book Nursery Childcare within our Foundation Stage at a charge of £4.50 per hour.

Nursery Admissions

Attendance at nursery school gives children a valuable introduction to school, helping them to develop positive attitudes to learning and to mix easily with other children. Dartington Nursery offers a safe, happy and stimulating environment where children can thrive, grow and have fun.

We will be delighted to take you on a tour and give you the opportunity to meet our nursery team to discuss the provision.
