environment rich in excitement and discovery.
"Welcome to Stamford Nursery School, a small and private day nursery for 2 to 4 year olds. Stamford Nursery School is located in the heart of Stamford, nestled within the Stamford Junior School grounds."
Manager - Stamford Nursery School
Stamford Nursery School is a natural starting point for those wishing to begin their journey with us. We are a private nursery setting, accessed by a large car park for parents to use, with secure entry gates into our purpose-built, modern setting.
The Badgers class is our toddler room with children aged 2-3, whilst The Owls are our pre-school pupils. Each group has its own indoor space with open access to our specially designed outside play areas and learning environments. Outdoor spaces are home to climbing equipment, a mud kitchen and a racetrack.
Our outside classroom, extensive school grounds, sports fields and woodland area are all accessible for Nursery children, along with the superb facilities at Stamford Junior School, including the private swimming pool.
Our Nursery children can access swimming lessons along with Spanish classes and dance lessons from the Stamford based Welland School of Dance.
Our in-the-moment planning means no two days are the same as the children bring their ideas and thoughts into Nursery and we explore the subjects they want to follow.
We have a self-contained, purpose-built nursery space with plenty of parking for easy drop off and pick up. All your child’s meals and snacks are prepared and devoured in our own kitchen-diner.
Outdoor spaces are home to climbing equipment, a mud kitchen and a racetrack. Outdoor Learning is run year round in our on-site outdoor classroom. Think woolly hats, wellies and making toast round the fire pit in winter; paddling in the shallow river in summer.

We work hard to encourage a sense of belonging in each child
This means, when the Junior School closes for a half-term break or a holiday, a form is sent out to all of our Nursery School parents asking whether you still require sessions.
The reason is that, if you intend to have a holiday or time away from the Nursery during these periods, no retainer fee is charged.
One of the many benefits of our Nursery School is the opportunity to progress into our Reception class at Stamford Junior School to continue your journey with us.
The educational foundations laid in the Nursery are continued through into Reception class forming a cohesive Early Years department ensuring a seamless transition. Our Reception and Nursery teams meet regularly, as do the children, to make sure everyone is ready for moving up and the changing environment.
Throughout the foundation years, we work hard to encourage a sense of belonging in each child, as we believe that this is crucial to creating engaged and active learners.
The specialist teachers used for subjects such as swimming and Spanish are kept consistent, providing security and familiarity for children.
