The Nursery

         Stoke Hill  Nursery School ~

an exciting place to grow,

explore and learn.

We are an outstanding Nursery in the heart of Exeter offering a creative and inspirational space to explore and play, whatever the weather!

‘Children in the nursery are looked after extremely well, and their behaviour is outstanding.’     OFSTED July 2015

We encourage children to be independent and curious, giving them time to think, reflect upon their learning and to express their ideas in different ways.

‘What a brilliant learning environment, such a special place. My child loves it here. Thank you so much’. Comment from a parent ~

As an exploratory Nursery, adults spend most of their day playing alongside the children. At our recent inspection the Nursery was recognised as ‘outstanding’ and is constantly developing and improving.

The Nursery places a high emphasis on speaking and listening and offers a friendly and sincere welcome to parents and children. If parents stay around to play for a short while that is fine, usually around 9.15am we meet for a ‘Hello Circle’ and plan the day.

Nursery sessions run during term times between  8.45 – 12.00 or 12.30 – 3.00pm or 8.45 -3.00pm with a packed lunch at midday (provided from home).

Families can access 15 hours free entitlement to Nursery education and where available can purchase additional hours for £4.00 per hour.
