Close Relationship with Newnham Croft School. The nursery enjoys close links and association with the main school. We have use of their ample facilities, including their 4 different playgrounds, the school hall, the music room and the cookery suit. Small groups of older children sometimes join in the school assemblies.

Close liaison with Newnham Croft School ensures that our nursery is working towards the same goals as children in the reception year at school.  Children who will be leaving the nursery at the end of the year have an opportunity to visit the reception class and meet their new teachers.

We are not a dedicated feeder nursery to Newnham Croft School. Although many of our children do join the school in the reception year. Attending the nursery does not guarantee  automatic placement within the school
