Our provision at Glascote Academy began operating in September 2019 in place of the old Glascote Heath Preschool.
We accommodate both two and three year olds and operate with a maximum of 30 children in any one session. All staff are qualified and trained in accordance with the Early Years Framework and have close links with the school Early Years team to ensure transition into school is both a natural progression for your child and an informed one.
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.

"My daughter absolutely loves attending Glascote Nursery. We have been so happy with how well Lacey quickly settled into nursery. As a quiet individual, she has started to grow in confidence and is forming positive relationships with peers and all the staff.
It is nice to be greeted each morning by friendly faces. The staff are always at hand to discuss any concerns and feedback.
I particularly like the parent-nursery relationship that the nursery has striven to build. This has been done through parent workshops, coffee and chats, children’s Christmas productions, stay and plays etc.
Children are given lots of opportunities to grow and thrive. This may be through teddy bear picnics in the school forest, visits to a local nursing home and hands-on, exciting learning within and outside the classroom.
Lacey has made many special memories and friends in her time at nursery that I’m sure will stay with her for a long time."
"Charlie absolutely loves it at pre-school, he has learnt so much since he has been there, he can't wait to go and see his new friends he has made. I feel that my child is safe and well looked after and I can't thank the teachers enough for that."
