Welcome to Gorse Hill Nursery!
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about our nursery. We believe it is a truly exceptional place for young children to learn and develop in a safe, caring environment. We are currently accepting applications for places in September for children turning three on or before 31st August 2022.
On this page, you’ll discover more about our nursery and our provision. If you have already decided that you’d like your child to attend our nursery, please fill in the form below, and a member of our team will be in touch.
The Gorse Hill Nursery provision is available for 3- to 4-year-olds and provided by a team of experienced carers and educators. Our nursery is open Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. This gives parents of children with 30 hours' funding the option for their child to stay all day, with a small fee for our lunchtime provision. Both 15 and 30 hour spaces are available. You can find out more about funding lower down on this page.
With development at the heart of our nursery provision, we follow an early years curriculum centred upon learning through play. We also focus on the development of our children’s speech, using BRISC (The Bristol Surveillance of Children’s Communication) to ensure they are making good progress.
Complementing our curriculum are our fantastic facilities and resources. We understand that establishing an environment conducive to learning gives children the best chance to develop and progress. Gorse Hill Nursery offers children a wide range of top-class facilities, including a large indoor classroom, an expansive outdoor area, and several messy play areas.
Gorse Hill Nursery — ‘Every Child Can’
The first steps in education are important for every child. At Gorse Hill Nursery, we introduce children to the world of education through fun and engaging activities. We focus on the individual needs of each child and help them to develop the foundational skills that are so crucial in early years learning.
Our nursery is located on the site of our wonderful primary school, which ensures young children become familiar with the atmosphere of a school and spend time near older children. We’ve found this to be highly beneficial for children who progress from our nursery to our primary school, as they settle in quickly to familiar surroundings.
Funding for Children
At Gorse Hill Nursery, we are delighted to be able to offer both 15 and 30 hours’ free childcare to the parents of 3- and 4-year-olds. We understand the financial impact nursery can have on families, so we are pleased that the parents of children attending our nursery have access to support funding.
The funding is provided by the government. To secure the funding for your child, visit the government website by clicking the relevant button below.
