Noah's Ark Nursery


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.
