Kirkbride Primary School Nursery Class

In our Early Years Unit we have lots of fun with the Nursery and Reception children learning through play based activities.Our Unit is safe and secure and offers exciting and challenging opportunities. We have free-flowing access which enables children to choose from all areas of learning, inside and out. This provides a stimulating educational environment.

Within the unit there is Mrs Pearson and Mrs Weidman as teachers supported by Mrs Fordyce and  Mrs Shirvinton. All staff are well qualified in Early Education and have the necessary training such as paediatric first aid and food hygiene. The Unit opens at 8:30 until 11:30 for Nursery children 5 days a week, and 8:40 until 3:00 for Reception.
