The closure of Temple Grove Academy Nursery – November 2022

I am saddened to announce the closure of the Temple Grove Academy Nursery. Unfortunately, since the covid pandemic, the number of children attending the nursery has dropped significantly making the offering no longer viable.

The nursery will close at the end of January 2023 with the final date of nursery service on Friday 27th January 2023. We hope that by giving you ample notice, you will have time to find an alternative provision for your child.

This has been a difficult decision for the Trust at Temple Grove Academy. The staff have run the nursery with diligence and care, always putting the children’s needs at the heart of their provision. I would like to thank them all for their hard work in creating an excellent provision at the nursery.

I also would like to thank the parents/guardians and carers who have trusted us with the care of your children.

We would welcome your views please.

More than a Nursery –

Welcome to Temple Grove Nursery School

Within a caring and nurturing Nursery environment, we bring something extra to your child. An educational pre-school experience which most nurseries cannot offer. We can offer this invaluable start, because in charge of our Nursery, we have a fully qualified Early Years teacher, trained to realise your child’s full potential even at this very early age.  Our Early Years Teacher qualified with a distinction in specialising in teaching 3-7 year olds.  She is supported by a Head of Year who qualified at Masters level as an Early Years Specialist.   This emphasis on high-calibre teaching brings out the best in every child.  With this expert guidance, we see each child develop in leaps and bounds.   We are lucky, in that Temple Grove Primary recognises the thirst for knowledge and new experiences that these little ones bring to the party, and therefore has put in place, from the very beginning, an emphasis on teaching and learning through play.

Our Nursery School is a safe and secure, caring environment – a happy place to have fun, make friends, and learn loads.

Then comes Primary School – and having got off to an excellent start, your child is moving on but staying in familiar surroundings with all the friends they’ve made in their Nursery School , their confidence intact, sure of where they are and who they are.  We see, as teachers, how much better this is for the child, moving forward.  Moving up into our Primary, they’re still on home-ground.   It’s an extension of what they know, and it’s an extension that extends the well-being of your child.


It’s a Great Start

The Nursery School has 26 places for children who are 3 years old


Part-time – 15 hours Free Eligibility for all children


Mornings – 8.30am – 11.30 5 days a week, term-time only.

Where to begin?

For your child to thrive, our Nursery School provides a safe and secure environment, where your child can relax (and therefore we hope, so can you).   Their day is learning structured around play.  Our experienced staff are warm, welcoming and watchful.  No child is left out, no child left to be sad or confused.  It’s our job to make your child’s time with us a joyful, exuberant learning experience for them – this helps us bring out the best in each child.   Our goal is to ensure they move on from us as well-socialised children, with their joy of discovery intact, ready for their next big adventure as they embark on Primary in the company of their friends.
