Our Nursery

The Oaktree School Nursery

The Oaktree School opened the Nursery Class in January 2020, and through popular demand is due to expand its provision in September 2024 with the opportunity for 3 year old to attend wrap around care.

With the opening of 'Caterpillar Class'  in January 2020, the School was able to start working with parents and the local community earlier in a child's development, ensuring a positive start to their children's early education. The Nursery Class provides learning opportunities for children to make steps towards their Early Learning Goals (ELGs) and will provides children with solid foundations on their journey as lifelong learners.

The larger Oaktree School Nursery Class will be able to offer places to 2, 3 and 4 year olds and accepts a range of funding options including FEET (15 free hours for 2 year olds), Universal funding (15 free hours for 3 & 4 year olds) and Extended funding (30 free hours for 3 & 4 year olds), as well as the new upcoming funded changes to 15 and 30 hours childcare support.
