Transition into Nursery

Welcome to Peterhouse Nursery!

At Peterhouse Nursery you are assured of a warm welcome for your child and family. Our environment is warm, welcoming and nurturing and enables children to take their first steps away from home, whilst teaching them the skills necessary for starting school. Our children feel secure, confident and happy and demonstrate an eagerness to learn.


Peterhouse Nursery is a maintained school nursery, providing care and education for children aged 3-4 years. As of September 2023 it will be led by a qualified teacher. She will teach within the nursery for two and a half days a week and be supported by a team of well qualified and experienced practitioners to deliver outstanding provision. 

We offer 24 places in each of our morning and afternoon classes (Monday – Friday), with lunchtime and all day provision provided. Our sessions run from 8.45 - 11.45am, 11.45am-2.45pm (this includes lunch), and we offer a full day from 8.45am-2.45pm.

We are a provider of Government funded early years education entitlement and offer both the universal 15 hours and extended 30 hours entitlement to all eligible 3 and 4 year olds. 

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS), which continues in our school Reception classes. 

Parents and the wider family are important to our work and we offer regular opportunities throughout the year to join us for play sessions and information evenings. 


We look forward to meeting you and your child!




Mrs Gibbs and Mrs Hodds are supported by Mrs Tall (Monday-Thursday) and Mrs Carter (Friday).
