Arden Grove Nursery has 52 places, 26 in the morning and 26 in the afternoon. Places are kept available for children with special educational needs and disabilities. The Nursery is the only designated nursery provision serving Hellesdon and the wider community.
Children are able to start Nursery in the September of the academic year in which they are four. The County Admissions Policy is adhered to, a copy of which is available in the school office.
It is very important that the children settle in happily, therefore, there is a phased admission of small groups of children for the first few sessions so that the children are helped to feel secure, confident and happy in their new environment. We encourage parents to stay until they feel happy that their children are settled.
