Welcome to Sacred Heart Nursery


Sacred Heart has a 78 place Nursery.

We operate 2 different sessions...

Morning - 8.30am - 11.30am

Afternoon- 12.15pm - 3.15pm.

Each child is entitled to 15 hours per week.


The Nursery is equipped with an outdoor area, a large indoor playroom, quiet room and café area. Activities in the Nursery are play-based and are carefully planned to allow the children to learn at their own pace in a fun and active way.

As a school family, in partnership with parents, we aim to provide a stimulating, safe and caring environment, where each child is valued as a unique individual.


Children visit Nursery with their parents during their start week to ensure that starting Nursery as stress free as possible for both the child and their parents/carers. By the time children commence attendance at a Nursery School, they have already had a variety of experiences and have developed in a number of ways. In order to utilise and build upon the learning that has taken place in the home and its immediate environment, we aim to provide our children with a rich variety of play activities and other experiences in a stimulating and challenging environment. We will focus on allowing our children to learn, at their own pace.


Our aim is to...

  • provide a safe and caring environment in which our children can develop respect for themselves and others, confidence, a positive self-image and a sense of responsibility.
  • encourage the children to become more independent. 
  • develop and build on the children’s interest in the world around them.

  • provide experiences that meet our children’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive needs at their particular stage of learning.

  • provide opportunities to discover that learning is fun through a range of different experiences.

  • provide appropriate support for children with special educational needs.

  • develop and maintain a close partnership with parents.

  • value our children as individuals and promote their uniqueness.

We love Nursery!
