The APS Nursery

For our youngest boys
The APS Nursery

Welcome to the APS Nursery

Providing outstanding nursery provision for only 16 boys at any one time, the APS Nursery is open for approximately 48 weeks a year, from 08.00 to 18.00 and provides flexible hours within that time.
APS is dedicated to nurturing confidence and excellence, welcoming two year old boys in to the APS family. Together with Pre-School and Reception, the APS Nursery is situated at Bank Place, providing a safe, happy and caring environment for the boys throughout their early years education and ensuring a smooth transition from Nursery in to Pre-School.

The APS Nursery has received heartfelt testaments from parents who are delighted that their sons have had the opportunity to receive the very best start to their education. 
During inspections, the EYFS Inspectors have provided excellent feedback which recognises that the boys are nurtured in a setting which provides learning opportunities for the children to explore, changing to reflect the interests of the children and their developing abilities throughout the year.

Mrs Cassel BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies, leads a fully qualified and experienced staff. Nursery parents praise the care for the boys as individuals, knowing that their sons feel safe, secure and valued in their environment. The boys develop confidence by becoming independent learners; the nursery staff encourage this through play based activities along with small group learning times. The introduction of  Literacy and Maths lessons, fully prepares the boys for their transition to our Pre-School at APS.

Our boys love the outdoors with Bell Field providing a natural expanse of learning opportunities and exploration, and it has been wonderful to see the boys run free throughout the seasons.

We'd love to show you round.
