Welcome to our Nursery

The Nursery at Overstone Combined School is a nursery provision for 3 and 4 year old children, which opened in April 2021. Run by Overstone Combined School, the Nursery Manager works in partnership with the school’s Early Years Foundation Stage Leader to provide an exciting, stimulating indoor and outdoor environment for children to thrive and develop.

Our staff are caring, friendly and highly experienced in working with Early Years children in a range of settings. Our Nursery is managed with the same policies and procedures as Overstone Combined School, including Safeguarding, First Aid, SEND and Behaviour Management. We are able to offer the same excellent practice as recognised by OFSTED across the age range from 3 years to 11 years.

The curriculum has been developed using the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Framework to ensure that children have a diverse range of fun, enriching experiences and are nurtured and cared for in a family environment.

The Nursery at Overstone Combined School is a Governor-led community provision.
