about the nursery
St Joseph’s School has an impressive reputation both within the South West and beyond for providing its pupils with an outstanding education, enabling them to achieve their potential and providing them with a firm foundation for life.
In the Nursery and Reception Class (3, 4 and 5 year olds) our very experienced, caring teachers provide the readiness for learning that gives our pupils the head start they need for success. The bright, stimulating environment offers a wealth of opportunities for all styles of learning and interest.
All lessons are planned carefully to meet the individual needs of our pupils whilst ensuring that a high element of fun and enjoyment are at the heart of all our learning. Many lessons in Nursery and Reception are taught by specialist teachers and full use is made of all the resources in the main school.
