The Small Setting with a Big Heart

Home > Nursery > Welcome


The Nursery is where our youngest children, from three months to three years, begin their journey of discovery and build the foundations for a lifelong adventure of learning.

Our caring environment and small setting is where children develop in confidence, beginning to learn new skills and make friends with other children.  We are delighted that the Early Years provision at the School was awarded Outstanding in all areas in our most recent inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate and full details of the report can be read online.    


Within the Nursery, outside play in encouraged whether it be on the outside terrace, in the mud kitchen, planting seeds, or in the School’s Outdoor Classroom; opening children’s eyes to a world of possibilities and developing an appreciation of the great outdoors.


Situated within the beautiful grounds of Birkenhead School, we have easy access to wider school facilities.  Regular walks and activities within the School grounds add to the wider experiences of our little ones and help when they come to move through the School.  


When the time comes, the move to Pre-Prep is a natural step for children and play dates, games and activities all support the move so that children are happy, confident and ready for their next adventure.

I warmly invite you to visit our Nursery and see what makes us a special place for your child’s formative years and visits are welcome throughout the year.  I look forward to meeting you and your family and showing you around the Nursery.

Furry Ears in Early Years!

Furry Ears in Early Years!

Over the last few months, we have had a few furry friends stay with us in Early Years - guinea pigs, Luna (grey) and Kiki (brown). The children and staff have loved getting to know and playing with the little fellows. The pigs take turns visiting the different age groups, from Under 2s to Pre-Prep; the children can have them on their knees, stroke them, and brush them. They feed them their favourite food, which is spinach, kale or cucumber.
