Our Nursery School

Elmdon Nursery School, for children aged 2½ - 5 years old, occupies the whole of a specially converted bungalow.  It is bright, spacious and carefully equipped, with a welcoming, homely atmosphere. 

There is an attractive garden with both lawned and paved areas incorporating a sandpit, play house, climbing frames and a specially designated digging area/mud kitchen.  The outside space is used as an additional ‘classroom’ for all areas of the curriculum.

“Children have daily opportunities to investigate and explore the environment and resources indoors and outdoors, which they do with great excitement.” OFSTED inspection report April 2016

Our aim at Elmdon is to create a secure, happy and stimulating environment in which the children can co-exist successfully, develop self-confidence and have the opportunity to fulfil their potential in all areas of development, preparing them for the next stage of their education.

We are proud to have achieved the grade of ‘OUTSTANDING’ in our most recent Ofsted inspections in 2011 and 2016. 

Last year we were delighted to celebrate 30 years of offering exciting Early Years education to the children of Ashtead and the surrounding areas.
