Horspath Pre-School Nursery is nestled in the grounds of Horspath Primary School next to the main building. We have our own separate and well-equipped brand new outside play area. With access to many of the school’s facilities, we offer children between the ages of 2½ and 5 years an enjoyable and well-rounded environment for play and learning.

The Nursery, which serves Horspath, Garsington, Cuddesdon, Cowley and Wheatley, employs a high ratio of quality staff to ensure the children attending the nursery are given an excellent start to their formal education.

Our curriculum is planned carefully to provide a wide range of exciting play opportunities and to develop basic skills and the knowledge necessary for a smooth start into school. The staff teach the children in small groups and spend much of the time working with the children on a one to one basis. This ensures that activities are tailored to meet children’s individual needs and gives opportunities for each child to be supported and extended where appropriate. The Staff also assess the children regularly so that they can quickly identify areas where children need extra help or show particular strengths which can be encouraged.

We encourage the active involvement of all of our parents and carers in the nursery. Together, we create a fostering, nurturing and welcoming place of learning and fun for our children.
