Welcome to St Mary’s Kindergarten!
We are a conveniently located private nursery near Colchester that offers an outstanding all-round pre-school education, amazing facilities and flexible childcare.
Children can start at St Mary’s Kindergarten in the term they turn three.
During their time at the nursery, we introduce children to learning and give them a solid preparation for starting school, both academically and socially, so they can make the most of all the opportunities school life brings.
We have a high ratio of staff to children and specialist teachers run sessions such as French, Music and Ballet.
We believe in providing a well-rounded experience and children take part in a range of activities such as PE, Forest School, music, ballet, French, cooking and outdoor learning, all included in the fees.
Children have the opportunity to go on trips, such as to the local church and Jimmy’s Farm, and take part in events including the Kindergarten and Infant Sports Day, Nativity performance, Prize Giving, Remembrance Day service and Mothering Sunday service.
We also hold a number of events for the whole family of those at St Mary’s to enjoy, such as Fireworks night, our Summer Fete and outdoor theatre productions.
Our purpose-built Kindergarten, with its own enclosed outdoor multi-sensory play area, is the perfect place for young children to thrive in a safe environment.
Children also have access to all the Lower School facilities including the Forest School area, outdoor classroom, Library, Dance Studio, School Hall, playing fields and sports courts, all set in nine acres of land.
Our Kindergarten is very popular and places can fill up over a year in advance. So if you’re interested in St Mary’s Kindergarten please get in touch with our Registrar as soon as you can at email@example.com or on 01206 594180.
