Nursery Provision (F1 / Pre-School)

F1

Welcome to Our Lady and St. Edward's Catholic Primary School - Nursery (F1 / Pre-School)

An outstanding nursery (F1 / Pre-School) providing high quality sessions and full day care to families.  Please see information below for information.

A fun and stimulating environment designed to nurture, inspire and in which we have fun every single day!

You will find us in our own Foundation building - The Annexe, adjacent to Our Lady and St. Edward's Catholic Primary School in Birkenhead.  The Annexe features large, spacious playrooms packed with exciting areas and inspiring activities that encourage and inspire learning and development.  Our outdoor area includes a Jolly Roger pirate ship, beautiful age appropriate wooden play equipment and The Edible Garden - a place children can learn and enjoy the outdoors.

We know that children learn best when they’re having lots of fun!  Because of this, we’ve created an environment where they can do just that. Our team believe in giving children super exciting, fun experiences every day with activities based around their likes and interests - encouraging their natural curiosity and as a result turning them into happy, confident little learners!

Delicious healthy food

Our carefully planned menus are designed to make sure our children are nurtured with fresh food and a nutritionally balanced diet every day.

Our menus run on a two-week cycle offering a different range of meals each week, so that your child has the varied diet required to help them develop their tastes and make healthy choices in the future.

Working together with you

At Our Lady and St Edward's Catholic Primary School we’re firm believers in building strong relationships with parents and carers.  That way, we can all work together to give your child the best possible start at home and at nursery.  To facilitate this, we provide an online programme - Tapestry to allow you to experience your child's day with us, parents’ evenings and regular chats with your child’s key person.

We’re like a big family at our nursery, and we would absolutely love to welcome you and your child to be a part of it.

Visit 

We’re so proud of our magical nursery and love to show it off. why not call us and book an appointment to explore everything we have to offer?

We can’t wait to meet you!
