We feel that it is important when choosing a Nursery for your child to have confidence in the care that your child receives. We provide a happy environment, where the needs of both the parent and child are met.

We are proud of how the Nursery has grown and what we have achieved. It is important that we share these things with you, whether this is through our monthly newsletters or the daily contact you have with the caring staff in the Nursery.

We also value your comments, which enable us to continue to improve the service we offer. The Peterborough School Nursery is committed to nurturing babies, toddlers and pre-school children in a happy, lively and caring environment.


The environment

The Nursery has a very strong emphasis on Parental Involvement and we ask that our parents take part in observing and planning for their child's activities. Our key people work very closely with parents in order to ensure consistent transitions between the setting and their home life.

Events & Trips

At The Peterborough School Nursery, the children take part in many special events such as Mother's Day and Father's Day Tea parties, they celebrate religious festivals such as Diwali and Chinese New Year, and the Pre-school children often go on trips in the local area.

For example, to the theatre to see the Christmas pantomime, to Notcutts garden centre to buy seeds for their vegetable garden and to the Peterborough Museum to explore fossils and dinosaur bones. The Pre-school children also take part in a Summer and Christmas Show each year, taking on roles, learning their lines, practicing their ballet dances and performing for their parents in the centre for performing arts at The Peterborough School.
