Welcome to Little Conkers Nursery

Little Conkers Nursery takes children from the age of 3 years and forms part of the Early Years provision here at St John’s Priory School.

Children get a head start in developing their creative, intellectual and social skills in a warm and comforting environment. Our children flourish under the personalised care and attention of our specialist teachers: enjoying happy play times and organic lunches with their friends. The reassurance of high quality wrap around care offers a secure and happy atmosphere that our children refer to as: The next BEST place to Home.

From the outset, children benefit from learning French and Spanish, Music and Drama. Lessons are interactive and focus on learning through enjoyable experiences. As a result, our youngest children exceed expectations and achieve excellent outcomes.
