Nursery Unit

Welcome to Stobhillgate First School Nursery Unit!

The first thing you will notice when you visit our nursery, is the spacious & welcoming environment with happy children and staff.  The primary aim of Early Years education is to provide a happy, caring and safe environment, which supports and extends knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence for all children.


“Children’s personal development and their welfare are outstanding. Children quickly settle and feel very safe and secure. They know they can trust the adults who will help them personally. They behave very well, responding to instructions and quickly learning to follow the daily routines.”

(Ofsted Inspection Report: Morpeth Stobhillgate First School, May 2009)


At Stobhillgate Nursery Unit we aim to make learning ‘fun’, as well as providing first hand experiences which are essential, as children learn in a variety of different ways.  The curriculum is taught through a variety of rich and exciting topics.  Information will be given to parents about each topic to enable learning to be shared at home.  Topics usually change every half term.
