Thank you for your interest in Millbrook Park Nursery.
Our nursery is housed in a purpose-built section of the school and boasts a large bespoke-designed outdoor play area. It is an attractive, bright environment which has been designed with learning in mind. We aim to ensure that children who join the nursery have a happy and successful start to their education. Although attending the nursery does not guarantee a place in the school, we strongly wish to admit children to the nursery whose parents/carers would like them to attend the infant school in order to aid continuity of experience for the child and help them settle easily and maintain friendships already established in the nursery.
Before applying for a place, you may wish to attend a prospective parents tour. Please click here for a list of upcoming dates. If you would like to attend a tour, please email the school office at email@example.com.
