The Gleddings Preparatory School What Our Parents Say

"We were soon very sure that The Gleddings was the right place for Anna. We know that she stands every chance of achieving her potential in a friendly and caring environment. Thank you for giving her the very best start to her career." - Mr and Mrs Brierley

Nursery Provision

Image Knowing that children are getting the best of care and the best of education gives parents the peace of mind they need to fulfill the enormous demands of their work.

In our efforts to make life easier for busy mums and dads we offer a full day nursery education with optional extended care provided by our early and late school clubs from 7.15am to 5.45pm (earlier or later by arrangement).

This first year of the Foundation Stage of Learning is extremely important in preparing children for future learning throughout main school. Most of our children attend full day sessions in Nursery in preparation for Main School. To ensure that all of our children in Nursery benefit from the full educational programme we recommend that they attend at least 5 morning sessions.

Enrolment at The Gleddings

ImageParents are warmly invited to visit us at The Gleddings (with or without their children), by appointment. We will be happy to show you around school and you will have the opportunity to meet the children, talk to the staff, and discuss your child's educational needs.

In many instances children's places are reserved at birth, or even earlier, so it is never too early to contact us if you are interested in viewing the school.

We are very grateful that our school enjoys a full roll. However, families occasionally move from the area so please do not hesitate to get in touch if you wish to enquire about places for Nursery or any other year group.

Starting at The Gleddings

ImageChildren generally join our nursery in the September after their third birthday. Parents are always most welcome to come and spend time in nursery with their child prior to them starting at the beginning of the academic year.




Before joining the school, new parents are invited to attend a Parent's Information Evening. Here they are able to meet other new parents and find out more about life in the Nursery. It is an ideal time to speak to Nursery staff and provides a further opportunity to ask questions. These evenings usually take place in June.
