Our Learning

Learning in Nursery

Welcome to Sunnyside, our Early Years class


At the Keresley Schools, we want all of our children to develop their language skills, accumulating a rich and wide vocabulary. We want them to develop a love of learning and to aim to be the best that they can be. We also want the children to have positive experiences, which influence their lives and shape their aspirations, allowing them every success in life. 

Here at the Keresley Schools we are very proud of our Nursery. We aim to provide a warm and caring environment where children can feel secure, confident and happy as they beginning their school learning journey.

In our early years unit, we admit children the term after their third birthday. We have space for up to 30 children. Each morning session runs from 8.45-11.45am every week day. We currently offer places for children aged from 3 to 4 years.

We also offer 30 hour funded childcare places for children aged 3 to 4 years if certain criteria are met. These sessions are from 9am until 3.30pm for 38 weeks of the year. For more information on 30 hour places please look at the attachments at the bottom of the page.
