Our Pride Our Joy are very excited to announce we began operating from the new Anker Valley Primary Academy school building from September 13th 2021.

We are a 24-place nursery room which will accommodate children from after their second birthday who will be able to attend either part time (fifteen hours) or full time (thirty hours). We accept funded places as well as chargeable ones.


We will also be offering outstanding wrap around care for all Anker Valley Primary Academy school children from 7:30 am until 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. We also run holiday clubs, so parents do not need to find alternative childcare around the regular school hours. Our aim is, in conjunction with the Trust, to provide a one-stop shop for all your childcare requirements from the age of three years up to eleven.


If you are interested in finding out any more details, or wish to register your interest in a nursery place for the 2021 academic year please contact the setting.


We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Nursery Information

In Our Pride Our Joy nurseries we follow a 'child initiated' curriculum which enables children to follow their own interests and learn through quality play, whilst being supported by qualified and experienced staff. Staff are trained to observe the children and look for 'teachable moments' in which to intervene and support the child to their next steps. 

We have full access to the outdoor areas throughout the sessions and in all weathers, so children can choose their preferred area to learn within a well thought out, enabling environment. 

Parents are kept informed of their child's progress through secure online accounts which they can read, enjoy and add to so that they can play a part in the 'learning journey' their child travels along whilst with us.

Care Club Information

Our wrap around care is provided within the security of the school building. Qualified staff plan a variety of activities for the children to participate in ranging from baking and craft, to team building challenges and sports.

Our breakfast club opens at 7:30 am and closes when school starts at 9.00 am. A choice of healthy breakfast options are available every day from our catering team. Children are escorted to their classrooms by the same member of staff each day, to ensure consistency and familiarity. Staff are then able to pass on any messages to the class teacher.

After school, the children come to club where they are registered and offered fruit and a drink before joining in with the fun and games with their friends. Club starts at 3:20 pm and operates until 6:00 pm where again, the catering team provide a snack for the children staying late.
