At St Matthew’s we are fortunate to have a Nursery that consists of a morning and afternoon session and a cohort of forty reception children in the Early Years Foundation Stage.


In Nursery we have Mrs Vaughan our Early Years leader working with Miss Beacham and Miss Norbury. We offer a warm, friendly and supportive environment which enables all children to make a confident start to their learning journey where the importance of the home school partnership is truly valued.


Session Times

St. Matthew’s Nursery Centre provides Nursery places for up to 64 children on a part-time basis.  The Nursery is open five days per week.  Session times are as follows:

Monday – Friday morning 8.40 am - 11.40 am.

Monday – Friday afternoon 12.15 pm - 3.15 pm.

Gates open five minutes prior to the session starting.


All parents are offered up to 15 hours per week flexible provision for their children to a maximum of three hours a day.  This is in line with the Government’s statutory requirement. We have a limited number of 30 hour places available in Nursery for those parents eligible for this funding. 


Please have a look at our Nursery class page to see what we have been up to this term.

This is our lovely indoor learning environment.
