Playing together, learning together, achieving together.
Our Nursery School Centre
We are a Hertfordshire County Council Maintained Nursery School registered for children aged 2-5 years old.
We have extensive purpose built buildings and rich provision, set in lovely grounds, with plentiful access to outside learning. We offer a range of services and work closely with other providers to ensure that our children gain the best support possible during their time with us at the school.
We have an onsite Children's Centre led by Barnardos. We host toddler groups, the local childminder group, support groups for parents (SPACE), the Early Years Specialist Development Centre and CHICS ( support for families with hearing impaired children).
‘Ryesings’ is our Pre-school class which offers specialist provision for our 2 and 3 year olds. Ryesings class operates in term- time and offers either morning ( 8.45-11.45am) or afternoon sessions (12.30 to 3.30pm). Some 2 year old children are eligible for up to 15 hours of free early education per week. Please speak to Mrs Helen Blay , our pre- school manager, if you think you think your child might be eligible for this. We also offer places to fee paying parents at £5.00 per hour. Please complete an application form so that we can add your child's name to our waiting list.
The Nursery Classes provide 15 hours per week of free early education for ALL 3-4 year olds in term time. We offer 3 hours per day for five days a week in either the morning or afternoon class. We have three intakes a year – September, January* and Easter* (*subject to places being available). The online system for nursery applications opens in February 2017 for applications for September 2017. Please make your application direct through Herts Direct by following the link.
