28 Abercorn Place is a gracious Victorian listed mansion with its own private garden. It is home to our Early Years Department and our Nursery, where our youngest Abercorn pupils join us from the age of 2½.

At Abercorn, we offer a half day Nursery with either a morning or afternoon session (8:45am - 11:45am or 12:45pm - 3:45pm). The Nursery provides a safe and secure environment where the children can enjoy a mixture of structured and 'free' activities to develop coordination, concentration and independence, and also experience the social and emotional benefits of school life.

In the Nursery your child is introduced to the fundamentals of Early Years education. To create a strong basis for future learning, great importance is placed on the three prime areas of learning: Personal, Social and Emotional development, Communication and Language, and Physical Development. In addition to these, the specific areas of Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design are also addressed. 

Lessons in French, Music and P.E. and Yoga, are also introduced, taught weekly by specialist teachers with nursery staff present for reassurance.The Nursery is well resourced; sand and water play, the art and craft table, a computer corner, and a construction area, all have an important part to play, along with the ‘home corner’ which fires their imagination. The dedicated outdoor space, which the children love, contains many pieces of play apparatus suitable for their age.  

It is our aim that our children leave Nursery confident, having learnt how to learn, how to share, how to play, how to socialise and most importantly, happy and looking forward to the next stage of their education.
