Welcome to the AKS Nursery

Open all year round, AKS Nursery is a vibrant and stimulating environment providing care and education for children from birth until they start school the September after their fourth birthday. Our outstanding provision offers the children a safe and happy place in which to lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning

The Nursery is open week days between 8.00am-6.00pm throughout the year, with the exception of Bank Holidays and one week between Christmas and New Year. We divide age groups into five classes, Babies, Bees, Ladybirds, Butterflies and Caterpillars.  Each section has their own dedicated space as well as taking advantage of the spacious accommodation both inside and out, where they can all learn together. Each child has a Key Person who monitors their progress and ensures that each child's specific needs are catered for. Our staff care for the children as individuals, setting out curriculum activities to develop their character - personally, emotionally and socially. Academically, children are taught prerequisite skills of reading, writing and numbers. French lessons are taught, and the children’s creative talents are encouraged in specialist music and dance lessons.


We support the children’s physical development through specialist sport lessons in our amazing outdoor spaces. A range of trips and visiting specialists enhance the children's learning further still and healthy school meals and snacks give them the energy they need to take advantage of all on offer.  Most children transfer from AKS Nursery to our Reception class, and as the Nursery is part of the Prep School, the transition is made easy with regular familiarisation visits and activities.  The Nursery children attend school assemblies each week.

We know that choosing the right nursery is one of the earliest and most important decisions that you will make for your child. In order to help you make the right choice, our website is designed to give you as much information as possible.  To find out more about our AKS Nursery, please read our recent ISI reports and Local Offer document.  However, nothing replaces the personal touch, so to meet our dedicated staff and see our wonderful facilities for yourself please contact our Registrar, Liz Wyatt, on 01253 784104 /, or visit our Remote Admissions page. We look forward to welcoming you to the Nursery.
