Welcome to Pre-School

At Western, we aim to develop kind, ambitious, curious, confident and successful young people who are excited about their futures.

Within a safe and secure nursery environment in Harrogate, our EARLY YEARS aims to nurture happy children, giving them the confidence to explore and experiment.

Our children initiate their own learning through play in our stimulating indoor and outdoor facilities, becoming creative thinkers with opportunities to discover and make sense of our fascinating world.

We offer places for pre-school children aged 3-4 in our pre-school rooms led by our experienced Early Years Staff. We have two rooms offering provision for our Pre-School children which are overseen by our Pre-School Teacher.

In our Green Room nursery we offer provision for our Summer born Pre-Schoolers and our oldest Nursery children. Our Green and Purple Rooms work together ensuring that all our Pre-School children are offered excited provision that gets them ready for their onward journey into school.

We offer a varied and sensory curriculum. By offering a key worker system, parents have a dedicated point of contact and are reassured that their children are well cared for and encouraged to learn through their play.

By using the online learning journal Tapestry throughout nursery, parents and carers, have updates to their child’s learning and interests.

From 3 years, nursery children are entitled to 15 or 30 hours of free nursery education per week.  Please contact the school office for further information.

We have found that children benefit most when they receive consistent sessions preferably on consecutive days.  Children who have taken just one or two sessions or who have had sessions at opposite ends of the week, in our experience may find it harder to settle and make friends.
