Welcome to the Nursery at Thornton.
We offer a Nursery education full of wonder and excitement. There is so much to see and get involved in at Thornton. The children soon develop a love of learning about the world around them. In addition to all the activities and toys available in our Nursery, the boys and girls visit the school library, have PE lessons either in the beautiful grounds of sports hall, have French lessons, cook, go on walks into the school's wood, visit Miss Harris in the Performing Arts Suite for Ballet and even manage to squeeze in some IT!
Boys and girls can join us from age 2 1/2 into our 'Butterfly' group, moving up to 'Bumblebees' in their pre-school year. The Nursery is part of our Pre-Preparatory Department and is housed in a purpose built facility with the Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 classes. They have regular contact with the Reception Class and get to know the Pre-Prep teachers well, easing the girls' transition into the Reception class at age 4+.
