Stanton St QuintinPrimary School

Discovering Together


Welcome to our Nursery for children aged 3-4 years, where every day is full of fun, friendship and discovery.

The children in Nursery have the unique opportunity of being in an Early Years Environment within the grounds of Stanton St Quintin Primary School.  Our children enjoy weekly Forest School sessions and have access to all the resources of our primary school.


Children in Nursery follow a broad and balanced curriculum called The Early Years Foundation Stage. We strongly believe that children learn best through play, and we therefore provide a play-based curriculum and environment that is stimulating and challenging for children’s own individual needs and interests. Children in the EYFS learn by playing and exploring, being active, and through creative and critical thinking, which takes place both indoors and outside. 


Nursery children also participate in early phonics and maths sessions, twice-weekly PE lessons, Squiggle while you wiggle and dough disco for developing gross and fine motor skills, planned activities to support children's developing oracy skills and games to support turn-taking and building friendships. Each child is paired up with a buddy from Year 5 or 6, who look out for them in the playground and spend quality time together.


Why our parents choose us:

'There's lots of outdoor play which is great for an energetic boy and I love the fact Stanton are happy to encourage their imaginative play.’ Mrs Raines-Watling.

“Our daughter has come on leaps and bounds since attending Stanton. She has the best of both worlds; the nurture of play and the direction of academic learning.” Mr and Mrs Godwin.
