About the Nursery


Holy Child Nursery Unit is connected to the main school building and is very much an integral part of school life at Holy Child Primary. We share the same core values in line with our Catholic ethos and celebrate our school motto of “Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day”. The Nursery children avail of many opportunities to visit and interact with children and staff in the main school, which is paramount to our successful Transition Programme when preparing the children for Primary 1.

Accommodated in two separate classrooms, our  Nursery provides a safe, nurturing and motivating learning environment for 52 children (26 in each class). We have created a child-friendly facility for our students to grow and shape their learning and although the classes are separate, we also cater for shared learning experiences with our foyer area and extension outdoor area.  Our outdoor classroom works as an extension of indoors and allows our children to develop their learning together, exploring all aspects of the Nursery Curriculum.
