Battle Abbey Nursery

19 Penland Road, Bexhill-on-Sea TN40 2JG

Battle Abbey Nursery thrive in their welcoming, stimulating and caring environment. They strive to meet the individual needs of every child and their friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff work closely in partnership with parents to ensure the children enjoy and achieve the best outcomes from their time with them.   

Children may join them from the age of three months and quickly settle in their welcoming, fun and well-resourced Nursery. The Oaks and Reception classes enjoy a weekly Forest School session led by their own qualified Forest School Leader to encourage a love of nature through opportunities to explore, investigate and play in a safe and secure environment.

The Oaks class transition to the Reception class is considered to be “seamless” as the children already feel part of the Battle Abbey School family and they focus on ensuring their Early Years Foundation Stage learning, confidence and skills to provide the best springboard into school.

The Nursery enrols pupils automatically in an Online Learning Journal ‘Tapestry’ Programme, which allows parents and carers to regularly view updates on their child’s progress and activities at the Nursery. Please click here for an example page from our online tapestry.

Battle Abbey School Nursery is an integral part of Battle Abbey School and enjoys the full range of their fantastic facilities which includes a wide variety of outdoor space for extensive learning and play opportunities, risk-taking and exploration in a safe and supportive environment. The Prep school playing field is used for nature walks, outdoor games and summer sports day.

The lovely secure and dedicated garden has been recently updated to provide a soft play surface and nature area which offers lots of opportunities to play, have fun with friends, explore and learn.
