Here are some of the things Ofsted said about our Nursery


"Children have a superb start to their education at Bowerdean Nursery School. Across both of the school’s sites – Bowerdean and Mapledean - children build strong relationships with their kind and caring staff and benefit from familiar routines."


"Children’s understanding of the natural world is remarkable. The curriculum has a seasonal focus which means that children notice change and make thoughtful observations and comparisons." 


"Staff have high aspirations for children’s learning and behaviour. There is no ceiling set, with every learning opportunity seized. As a result, children are enthusiastic learners, achieve highly and are exceptionally well prepared for their transition into early years."
