Love, Live and Learn


Welcome to Nursery class at Our Lady and St Swithin's.


We strive to lay a good foundation for the children's future, by providing a secure and stimulating environment that encourages your child's curiosity and interests to develop.


Playing together, children learn to co-operate and to care for each other, whilst developing confidence in themselves and their abilities through the many activities both indoors and outdoors. The Nursery Team are delighted to speak with you each day about our exciting timetable and curriculum.
