Noah's Ark Nursery
Ofsted rated - GOOD - October 2021
The Belmont CE Primary School family grew in September 2016, when we opened Noah's Ark Nursery. Our Nursery offers a wide range of learning experiences in a warm and welcoming learning environment.
We work very closely with our Reception staff; this strengthens our EYFS Team and ensures a smooth transition for the children from Nursery to Reception.
We currently offer the 15 and 30 hour childcare provision during term time, as well as paid extra sessions.
All children are entitled to 15 hours free provision, from the school term after their third birthday, until they start school.
