Moredon Nursery — ‘Your learning journey to new horizons’
The first steps in education are important for every child. At Moredon Nursery, we introduce children to the world of education through fun and engaging activities. We focus on the individual needs of each child and help them to develop the foundational skills that are so crucial in early years learning.
Our nursery is located on the site of our wonderful primary school, which ensures young children become familiar with the atmosphere of a school and spending time near older children. We’ve found this to be highly beneficial for children who progress from our nursery to our primary school, as they settle in quickly to familiar surroundings.
The Moredon Nursery provision is available for 3- to 4-year-olds and provided by a team of experienced carers and educators. For children with 15 hours’ funding, the nursery is open Monday to Friday between 8:40 a.m. and 11:40 a.m. For children with 30 hours’ funding, our nursery is open 8:40 a.m. until 3:10 p.m. Monday to Thursday, and 8:40 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on a Friday.
We also offer those with 15 hours' funding, the opportunity to pay for their child to stay all day. The cost of each afternoon session is £15.75 (Mon-Thurs) and £8.25 for a Friday session, due to the early finish.
With development at the heart of our nursery provision, we follow a bespoke curriculum that focuses on phonics, reading, and mathematics, as well as a range of play activities involving construction, roleplay, sand, water, playdough, painting, riding trikes, and going on bug hunts.
Complementing our curriculum are our fantastic facilities and resources. We understand that establishing an environment conducive to learning gives children the best chance to develop and progress. Moredon Nursery offers children a wide range of top-class facilities to stimulate their learning. They include:
- A bright indoor area.
- A secure outdoor area.
- The school field, which is used for ‘Welly Wednesday’.
- The school hall, which is used for P.E.
- iPads and other learning resources.

The video mentions weekly PE lessons and daily book changes; this is what would happen normally. However, once we know more about the ongoing COVID-19 situation for September, we will confirm PE and school book arrangements in.
Funding for Children
At Moredon Nursery, we are delighted to be able to offer both 15 and 30 hours’ free childcare to the parents of 3- and 4-year-olds. We understand the financial impact nursery can have on families, so we are pleased that the parents of children attending our nursery have access to support funding.
The funding is provided by the government. To secure the funding for your child, visit the government website by clicking the relevant button below.
