Admissions to Nursery

Prestbury Church of England Primary School has a long history from 1720. We are proud of our school and all that we are able to offer. We are especially fortunate to have a Nursery unit on site, which was a gift to the school, in 1972 from the Koopman family in memory of their daughter Marijke.

Our Nursery is different to a Pre School as it is a legal requirement to have a qualified teacher in a maintained Nursery. As well as a focus on social, physical and language development, there is a clear learning focus to all that takes place and as we have the same group of children 5 sessions a week we are able to have a structured and clear approach to teaching of phonics. The progress children make in our nursery, both socially and academically is excellent and this ensures that the children have built an excellent foundation before starting school.  The Nursery is staffed by a teacher and two teaching assistants. Admission to the Nursery is arranged the school term after the child’s third birthday, according to places being available, and is for either five mornings or five afternoons, each week. Additional sessions may also be available.

The Marijke Koopman Nursery is part of a Church of England School. The school has longstanding links with the church and village community. The Nursery children will sometimes have bible stories read to them and will take part in Nursery Worship and Christian celebrations throughout the year. There is a strong Christian ethos  throughout the school.

We take part in several village events during the year which includes the Rose Queen Festival in June. Information about this and other events can be found through the School’s weekly newsletter (obtainable either from our web page at or from the School Office entrance).

You are always welcome in the Nursery. We hope that parents will join staff and children in visits and outings. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with you.
