The Nursery

The Nursery


Our nursery is located within the St Joseph’s complex on Mare Street via a private entrance, with a buggy park, illuminated by colourful stained glass. Inside it is bright and modern with rooms flooded with natural light.

Our four rooms are named after locally indigenous trees that the children see on their trips to the park: Willow Room is where 1- to 2 -year-olds find their feet, Hazel Room and Elder Room is where 2- to 3-year-olds explore their world, while Olive room is designed for the development of our 3- to 5-year-olds.

Both the garden and the play area are used as outdoor classrooms with a variety of innovative learning experiences designed to feed your child’s imagination.


In each of our four rooms we have created a stimulating and safe environment that encourages your child to explore, learn and express themselves through role play, messy play, art activities, sensory exploration and much more. When it’s nap time, dark curtains and comfy mats ensure your child gets their well-earned rest.

Our community
