Stamford Nursery School provides education for children aged 2-4. Caring and committed staff offer children experiences rich in excitement and discovery, in a happy and safe environment. It is also the first step into the Endowed Schools family and facilitates a smooth transition to the Junior School.
We are open for 50 weeks of the year, with no retainer fee during half terms and holidays (following SJS school holidays).
Open on an extended day from 07:45 to 18:00 term time and 08:00 to 18:00 during the school holidays. For those using universal funded sessions for 3-year olds they can be claimed between 09:00 – 12:00 & 13:00 – 16:00Find our more about our day
The Nursery School embraces the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) approach to learning. This is a principle-led, child-centered and play-based framework. Getting to know our children as individuals, ensures a tailored learning experience drawing on needs and fascinations.Forest School
The purpose-built facility occupies a peaceful, wooded area in the grounds of Stamford Junior School, and is accessible from the Cattle Market car park, just a couple of minutes from the Meadows and Stamford’s train station.
The wealth of facilities – including its own kitchen, a large outdoor play area and garden, two large rooms for the different age groups (which can be opened out into one via a collapsible wall) and ICT equipment – make the nursery the first choice in Stamford for many families.
One of the tremendous benefits of our Nursery School is the opportunity to progress into our Reception Class and then continue on an educational journey through the Stamford Endowed Schools family.Moving Up
