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 – email@example.com or by phone – 0115 915 3261.

What we’ve been up to…
Just before the new academic year began, we were successfully re-accredited with the International Schools Award for a further three years until 2021. This is a fantastic accolade for the school and recognition of how celebrating diversity and links with the wider world are fundamental to Middleton’s ethos. Our school was invited to attend the national award ceremony in London. The event took place in the Houses of Parliament and included a speech from Damian Hinds MP, the Secretary of State for Education, who extolled the virtues of schools such as Middleton for the work they do in encouraging children to have a global perspective.
Recently, our Year 4 children created a fantastic piece of Winter artwork under the guidance and expertise of an artist. We were so excited and proud to see this artwork on display, recently, at the Bramcote Lane Christmas Lights Switch on!
Last Thursday, Mrs Freely and Miss Need accompanied some of Middleton School Choir to sing at the Bramcote Lane Christmas Lights Switch on. It was a privilege to be invited, to develop links with the community and for our children to have the opportunity to show off their fantastic performing skills. We are all incredibly proud of how the children represented Middleton School. Well done Middleton!
