Visits to Sandhurst Primary School - For the children who will be starting school in September 2019 we have made arrangements for settling in visits to the reception class at Sandhurst Primary School during the Spring and Summer terms. These visits will last approximately an hour and will be planned around the school diary. All children visiting the Primary School should wear nursery uniform at all times.

Nursery Uniform and Appropriate Clothing

We encourage our children to wear Nursery uniform, as well as it helping us to identify the Nursery children within our school setting, we also believe it helps the children prepare for wearing uniform when they begin heading to school. 

The nursery's uniform consists of a choice of T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Fleeces or a Jacket with the nursery school’s logo on, these can be ordered and bought direct from the nursery. Please see the order form provided in your admission pack or send your order direct to the nursery via email.

Please also ensure that your child has weather appropriate clothing and footwear according to the seasons. We like to get outdoors in all weathers! In cold weather please make sure your child has a warm coat and hat and likewise, in the summer term please supply your child with a sun hat and sun cream for outdoor play. Where possible all items of clothing and sun cream should be clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

Shoes should be covered, sandals are a trip hazard for small children, we also love velcro shoes as valuable time is spent on those double-knotted trainers!

We try to encourage the children to be independent as part of their personal development, please where possible dress your child in clothes which are easy for them to manage e.g. elasticated waists, no dungarees please! We also ask you to provide a full change of clothes in case of any accidents.


 SUNSHINE ROOM is now open! We have a few spaces left for children from the age of 12 months and up on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and more spaces available for all children from the age of 2 years to 4 plus in RAINBOW ROOM for the Autumn Term - September 2019.  An Open Day will be organised in May/June but you are always welcome to visit the nursery during term time.  Please telephone the nursery manager, Angela Writer, on 01580 850407 or email  Thank you and we look forward to meeting you.
