The Ivies

Co-ed nursery for boys and girls aged 2-4 years


Our friendly, enthusiastic and experienced team is highly trained in Early Years education and provides a warm, caring environment where children learn to be independent, confident, sociable and develop a positive approach to learning. 

Each session is carefully planned to stimulate each child’s social, physical and intellectual growth, while maintaining a real sense of fun and enjoyment.  Our children have full access to our outdoor play areas as well as a range of facilities at the school such as the gym and extensive woodland and Forest School area, giving them a huge variety of things to see, do and experiment with.  

Every day offers something different and with specialist activities including Forest School, Swimming, Ballet, Little Linguists and Crafty Chefs, your child will be receiving the very best nursery education available.  All these activities are included in our fees and there are no extra charges for special activities.

Reception readiness

We know that nursery is the first steps in your child’s school career and that they will soon be taking the leap to ‘big school’. The transition from the nursery environment to Reception can be daunting, with a lot of changes, which is why we make sure our little Ivies are totally ready to start reception with our ‘Reception Readiness’ sessions. These weekly afternoon sessions run from the second half of the Spring Term to the end of the Academic year for Ivies and external children registered to join our Reception class the following September and are totally free of charge.
