Culford Pre-Prep and Nursery gives your child the best possible start to their education.

From September 2017, Culford will be able to cater for children from 12 months. These pupils will be based in a separate purpose built Nursery from ages 1 to 3 years. Once they have finished these years (Nursery 1 and 2), they will then move up to Nursery 3, based in the Pre-Prep building.

The warm, nurturing environment of both nurseries provides children with a safe, happy place where they can develop their confidence as they begin their learning journeys.

The children enjoy an extremely broad curriculum through which they can discover their interests, and through a wide range of activities including music, ballet, sport and art as well as several other after school activities.

To aid learning and discovery, the nursery also operates a ‘Forest School’, which is not only a wonderfully enjoyable way for children to learn but has been proven to help develop team-building and problem-solving skills. Forest School, as with all the activities at Culford, takes place in the school’s grounds.

The best way to find out more about the new or existing nursery is to visit.

They are able to offer parent, baby and toddler sessions on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. These give parents the opportunity to meet the pre-prep and nursery staff and socialise with other parents.

It also gives your children the opportunity to join in with the exciting activities such as messy art, active movers or the hartbeeps music session.

My son participated in various Christmas related activities, catwalk fashion show, dance show and the nativity. They were all fantastic, well organised, well supported and the children were extremely well behaved. They learnt so much in such a short space of time and all helped my son's confidence. There was also a trip to 'Winter Wonderland' and Christmas fair and raffle. The PTA have a large role in organising events and do very well getting parents involved. Excellent nursery, my son is always happy to go to school and that's the main indication.

I have one son at Culford Nursery at the moment and will have no hesitation sending our other child when he is old enough. They get a perfect balance between learning and making the whole experience enjoyable for the kids. The staff can’t do enough and my little one talks about his head teacher all the time at home. He is actually sad he is not on holiday as he can’t go back for a few weeks. Really great place.

When your child groans if you say it's not a Nursery day then you know they love Nursery!
Culford School Nursery is in a superb setting and blessed with a fantastic group of staff members. The children are well cared for and nurtured and the communication from the staff is excellent. Whether it's playing outside at Forest School, or learning ballet or French my daughter always enjoys her days full of activities and friends.
I would highly recommend Culford School Nursery to anyone who is looking for a stimulating and caring environment for their child.

My children have never been so happy. They are much more confident, and have become keen to learn their numbers and letters. The music, dance, golf and tennis are all fantastic.

Our daughter started at Culford Nursery in September 2015 and we haven't looked back. The quality of teaching, learning and care is first class, but most importantly she has fun and always comes home enthusiastic about her day. The staff are all approachable and keen to discuss matters should you wish, the positive and negative and have that wonderful 'our door is always open' attitude. I would highly recommend.

My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her two years in the Culford Nursery. She grew in confidence whilst learning a great deal. She was encouraged with music, art, tennis, forest school and swimming. She looked forward to her mornings and days and was always happy and excited to arrive at nursery. The care was exceptional and I would highly recommend.

Culford Nursery is a friendly, caring, nurturing place for any child. They are very welcoming and take a genuine interest in each individual child's learning journey and well being. My son runs into nursery and cannot wait to see his friends and teachers. Couldn't ask for a better place for him.
