Middleton Nursery

We are a Nursery with 52 part-time places in the morning and 39 part-time places in the afternoon, for children who are 3 and 4 years old. Our friendly and caring atmosphere complements a positive learning environment within the nursery.

Our staff consists of 2 teachers (Mrs Ruth Fletcher and Mrs Ann Morrell) and 2 teaching assistants and we work very closely with the Reception (Foundation 2) staff.

We operate as a combined “Foundation Stage Unit” with 52 Nursery children and 90 Reception children. All these children have access to the whole unit. However Nursery children are taught their “focus activities” by the Nursery staff and Reception children by the Reception staff. The children have the opportunities to access a range of provision covering the seven areas of learning (Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language, Physical Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design). We have a fantastic outdoor area where the children can also access a range of activities covering the seven areas of learning.

Morning Nursery runs from 8.35am until 11.35am and afternoon Nursery sessions are from 12.35pm until 3.35pm, so each child has 3- hour daily sessions, therefore comprising 15 hours of free Nursery education each week.  Children attend either every morning or every afternoon, 5 days a week.

To apply for a place at our Nursery you will need to fill in an application form for your child which can be obtained by following the link or from our school office. Please note that our Nursery is popular and over-subscribed and that we may not be able to offer you a place immediately, or offer you your first choice between morning or afternoon.

We encourage parents and carers to visit our Nursery to gain a feeling of our vibrant, caring environment. To do so please get in touch in person, by email – kim.brown@middleton.nottingham.sch.uk or by phone – 0115 915 3261.

German Guests

In October 2018 Middleton hosted two French students for a week. Last month, Middleton hosted two German ones from Bilborough College. Our guests taught Y3, Y4 and Y5 classes and explained the German way of life and our pupils enjoyed asking questions and learning about German food, music, towns and school life. Next Month we will have two Spanish students doing the same activities in Spanish. Middleton is truly an international school.
