Early Years - Seedlings @ St Mary's


    An exciting new adventure starts in September 2018 when St Mary’s opens it’s doors to 2 year olds for the first time with the opening of Seedlings @ St Mary’s.

    ‘Seedlings’ will offer early education provision for 2 year old children, many of whom will take their first steps into education with us. We will be offering 16 (15 hour) places for 2 year olds who will then move on to nursery; that’s 15 hours of playing, painting, reading, cooking, climbing, singing, dancing, dressing-up, running around, building, gardening… whatever your child likes doing! 

    Seedlings will be staffed by experienced teaching assistants in the Early Years Unit, with full access to our extensive outdoor areas and designated play/learning zones of the unit itself.

    We aim to provide the children with a safe, caring, engaging and stimulating environment where they will have vast opportunities to develop, grow and learn at their own pace whilst developing important social skills through play and exploration.

    Places are limited and priority for these will be given to families with entitlement to a free funded 2 year old childcare place in the first instance; some paid places may become available. 

     Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at school if you have any questions.

    Below is our Prospectus to give you a flavour of our offer.
