The Small Setting with a Big Heart

Home > Nursery > Welcome


The first few years in a young child's life are a truly remarkable time and can make an enormous difference to a child's growth and development. Nursery is where our youngest children, from three months to three years, begin their journey of discovery and build the foundations for a lifelong adventure of learning.


We work hard to provide enabling environments that stimulate, excite and intrigue the children so that they are curious to see and do more. All these experiences help to shape their indivdual development and build the foundations for future success, wellbeing and lifelong learning.

From Nursery to Pre-Prep, the children learn through play. Children can become deeply involved in place, taking things they already know and combining them in new ways to increase their understanding and build on existing learning.


Situated within the beautiful grounds of Birkenhead School, we have easy access to wider school facilities.  Regular walks and activities within the School grounds add to the wider experiences of our little ones and help when they come to move through the School.  


When the time comes, the move to Pre-Prep is a natural step for children and play dates, games and activities all support the move so that children are happy, confident and ready for their next adventure.

We have a teaching team of the highest calibre who will nurture, care and scaffold your child's progress throughout the Early Years Foundation.

We warmly invite you to visit our Nursery and see what makes us a special place for your child’s formative years and visits are welcome throughout the year. We look forward to meeting you and your family and showing you around the Nursery.

Furry Ears in Early Years!

Furry Ears in Early Years!

Over the last few months, we have had a few furry friends stay with us in Early Years - guinea pigs, Luna (grey) and Kiki (brown). The children and staff have loved getting to know and playing with the little fellows. The pigs take turns visiting the different age groups, from Under 2s to Pre-Prep; the children can have them on their knees, stroke them, and brush them. They feed them their favourite food, which is spinach, kale or cucumber.
