St Margaret's Prep School

Gosfield Hall Park, Gosfield, Halstead CO9 1SE

The nursery at St Margaret’s School welcomes children from the age of two to attend the nursery situated within its grounds. Children are helped to develop their own personality and grow their confidence through the support given to them by care staff.

Children learn through a variety of play activities, with both indoor and outside areas to explore and have fun in. All meals are home-cooked and are healthy, tasty and nutritional to ensure each child has the energy they need throughout their busy days. Lunch is provided to all children attending full days or morning sessions.

Each child is given love and warmth by nursery staff and every individual has a key worker who observes and assesses the child developments at key stages.

Children are taught by specialist staff and have French, Music and PE with the same specialist teachers as the rest of the school with full access to seven acres of grounds. The new purpose-built nursery was completed in the summer of 2017.

Children are eligible for the Early Years Grant from the term after their third birthday. Contact St. Margaret's for further information.
