Starting Nursery

Welcome to Butterfly Class!

We are very lucky at Greenvale to have our own Nursery, Butterfly Class. 

We take children from the term after their 3rd birthday, so this means your child will be able to start our funded Nursery (subject to spaces) in September, January and April after they have turned 3.

We run morning sessions only from 8.30am - 11.30am, Monday to Friday and term time only.

Children learn through active, practical activities. Every day they will have the opportunity to explore a range of different learning experiences. Throughout the session, activities take place indoors and outdoors.

Our learning environment is stimulating and designed to meet the requirements of the Early Years Framework. We are sensitive to children’s needs and interests and consider these when planning learning experiences.

Please contact the school office on 01634 409521 or for further information or to add your child to our waiting list. We are also very happy to arrange a visit to look around should you wish.
