Welcome to Edge Grove Nursery

Edge Grove Nursery, for children from age 2 to 4, offers a warm, family atmosphere in a home from home environment in Aldenham Village, just a couple of minutes’ drive from the main Edge Grove school site. At our Nursery, staff enjoy caring for children and helping families to navigate the challenges of early parenthood.

We’re incredibly proud of the home-from-home nursery experience we offer; our families know their children will be safe and happy in the care of our kind and experienced staff.

The Nursery is a child-centred environment where each child has the opportunity to develop confidence, independence and curiosity about the world around them. It offers vibrant and stimulating learning zones, all inter-connected, allowing free-flow around the building.

The Nursery is staffed by two teachers and a team of Learning Assistants. Lessons with specialist teachers include Modern Foreign Languages, Performing Arts, Forest School and PE.

Our talented and dedicated Nursery staff place the happiness, safety, health and emotional wellbeing of every child at the centre of all they do. They recognise the importance of these early years in the development of character and individuality and in building social skills. Other than in exceptional circumstances, Edge Grove Nursery children move onto Reception at Edge Grove without the need for formal 4+ assessment.

We love to welcome visitors to our Nursery and urge you, and your little one, to come along and feel the buzz for yourselves!

I look forward to meeting you!

Academic Journey

Our bespoke curriculum is designed to ensure that we capture each child’s curiosity, enabling them to fully explore and develop their ideas.

Learning at this age should be motivating, engaging and fun, opening up a world of wonder for children where personal interests can flourish.

Our team of highly experienced staff at Edge Grove Nursery have developed an exciting curriculum that prepares children for school, working in bright, airy classrooms and open spaces.

Our Nursery Environment

Our exciting Nursery curriculum is delivered in bright, airy classrooms and open spaces.  Pupils are able to free-flow between inside and out, and there are always lots of activities for them to choose from within each area of the Nursery.  Pupils take the Edge Grove Rocket up to the main School site for PE and Forest School lessons, as well as their regular story time with the Head – which takes place in a different place almost every week!  The children have been in the Library, the Head’s Office, around the Board Room table, and even in the Staff Room!
