Banstead Prep School Nursery

Our Nursery is a safe, secure, warm and nurturing environment for children aged two to five years old.

We offer our youngest children the opportunity to develop through play, helping them to feel confident and safe in the school environment while ensuring they’re given the best start to their learning journey.

To really encourage the best from children it’s vital that we get it right, right from the very start. Every child learns, progresses and succeeds in their own way. By investing in our youngest children from the minute they join us, encouraging their interests, promoting kindness and compassion, and teaching them how to learn, we instil lifelong good habits.

Success encompasses everything we do; the foundations we create and then build upon in Nursery are crucial to our children’s later development, in all areas – personally, socially, physically and academically.

We provide an extremely high standard of education and pastoral care, embedding a ‘can do’ attitude, a love of learning, happiness in the school environment and the skills to tackle challenges right from the beginning.

Children from the age of three until the first term of their fifth birthday are eligible to receive up to 15 hours of Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) within the sessions attended. EYFE is available for six terms, from the term following your child's third birthday until the term when they turn five.  To enable the school to claim the EYFE funding, a Parental Declaration Form will need to be completed and signed.

Hayley Compton: Nursery Leader

I have been working with Early Years children for 17 years now and have experience of all the age ranges from 0 -5 years old. I started my career as a Nursery Nurse when leaving college and have gradually worked towards achieving my degree and EYP status in 2007, working in a variety of roles.

I really enjoy leading the Nursery Team at Banstead Prep and welcoming families, so we can work together to achieve the best start in their children’s educational journey. In the Nursery it is paramount for children to gain independence through learning and having a supportive team will enable them to be confident and active learners.
