St Joseph's College's Nursery & Reception excels in every area, enabling children to progress ahead of their age.
Dedicated. Effective. Secure. Happy. All describe the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) provision at St Joseph's, where children get an excellent start to their education and development.
To borrow a few words from the most recent Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) report, the College provides:
“a stimulating beginning to school life [where] knowledgeable staff weave the children’s interests skilfully into exciting topics and activities…The quality and standards of the EYFS are excellent. All children make excellent progress and achieve better than age-related expectations in all areas of learning.”(ISI Inspection Report, March 2013)
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
In addition to our Nursery & Reception, St Joseph's also runs a term-time Friday morning Parent & Toddler group, staffed by our level 3 qualified Nursery Assistant. This weekly session is designed to help familiarise both children and parents with the Nursery and its staff prior to starting on their educational journeys.
Please note that Government childcare funding is available. Parents of pre-school nursery children can apply for this funding at the start of each term through the school. This differs from workplace vouchers which can also be accepted.
