River Mill Primary School

River Mill Nursery

As part of the Connect Schools Academy Trust, the River Mill nursery benefits from the expertise of the multi-academy trust, led by our CEO, Andrea Carter, and Executive Head Teacher, Wendy Giles.   River Mill Nursery will provide children within our care with the best possible Early Years education in order to prepare them not just for school but for their future as lifelong learners. Our play-based curriculum is planned with exciting hands-on activities that will develop children’s lively imaginative and enquiring minds.


With this in mind we will ensure that the staff team work effectively together to provide a stimulating and nurturing atmosphere where tolerance, respect and appreciation of the achievements and differences of others are at the very core of our ethos. We recognise that all children are individuals and we will actively encourage them to flourish through spending quality time with each child and their parents to discover what makes them unique.   

Within the setting we will operate a key worker system. This means that each child is assigned a key person when they first start within the setting. Your child’s key person will spend time with you and your child to establish a purposeful relationship from the outset. 

We are not able to open a nursery whilst we are in the temporary buildings; we will keep you advised of our planned opening date.

Please see "Nursery Admissions" under our Admissions Policy tab for more information on the planned opening of the nursery, and to complete a nursery application form.
