Welcome to Nursery at St Stephen's CE RSA Academy

Our Nursery Class (Troll Class) is based in our Foundation Stage Unit, where we have a beautiful classroom, and an exciting garden to learn in. We help your children learn in a calm, friendly, engaging and creative way, with lots and lots of play. We aim to develop your child's learning, skills and independence, so that they develop a love of learning and school, building on the knowledge and experiences they already have. 

Nursery Hours

At St Stephen's CE RSA Academy our Nursery operates from 8:45 to 11:55 every weekday. Your child is eligible for 15 hours free nursery provision from the term after they turn 3. 

We work very closely with Holly Trees Day Nursery (based at the children's centre on the school site), who may be able to offer an additional 15 hours funding if you are eligible for 30 hours, or if you need wrap-around care.

Please contact the school office on 01527 63911 to talk to us about a Nursery place.

Our Learning

Our curriculum is is led by the children and their individual needs and interests. Each half term we have an overarching theme to ensure progression through the development matters curriculum, that builds on prior knowledge and gives us opportunities to practice, develop and embed skills.
