Drove Nursery — "The Roots to Grow and the Wings to Fly"

The first steps in education are important for every child. At Drove Nursery, we introduce children to the world of education through fun and engaging activities. We focus on the individual needs of each child and help them to develop the foundational skills that are so crucial in early years learning.

Our nursery is located on the site of our wonderful primary school, which ensures young children become familiar with the atmosphere of a school and spending time near older children. We’ve found this to be highly beneficial for children who progress from our nursery to our primary school, as they settle in quickly to familiar surroundings.


Our Provision

The Drove Nursery provision is available for 2- to 4-year-olds and provided by a team of experienced carers and educators. Our nursery is open Monday to Friday, with morning sessions between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. and afternoon sessions between 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

With development at the heart of our nursery provision, we follow the early years foundation stage (EYFS) curriculum that focuses on inclusivity, growth, and furthering the foundational skills that every child needs.

Complementing our curriculum are our fantastic facilities and resources. We understand that establishing an environment conducive to learning gives children the best chance to develop and progress. Drove Nursery offers children a wide range of top-class facilities, including a garden space, where children learn in an outdoor environment.


Funding for Children

At Drove Nursery, we are delighted to be able to offer free education and childcare for 2-year-olds and 15 hours’ free childcare to the parents of 3- and 4-year-olds. We understand the financial impact nursery can have on families, so we are pleased that the parents of children attending our nursery have access to support funding.

The funding is provided by the government. To secure the funding for your child, visit the government website by clicking the relevant button below.
