Friends of Chestnuts

We have a Friends of Chestnuts group which organises social events and fund-raises for the school. The Annual General Meeting is held in the Autumn Term. Regular newsletters publicise events and other information. All parents, friends and staff of the school are members of the Association and it is hoped that you will become actively involved in the life of the school.

If you are interested in becoming a friend of Chestnuts please contact the Chairperson Mrs Nicola Stynes or Treasurer Ellen Webb. They are both contactable through the school office.

Kids Play Nurseries

The Day Nursery and Pre-School here at Chestnuts Primary School is managed by Kids Play Childcare, a locally based company with OUTSTANDING recognition from OFSTED* across its Nursery group. The Nursery 'Little chestnuts' offers excellent childcare for children from 6 weeks to 5 years in a caring, spacious and modern environment which are ideal for energetic play both inside and out. The qualified and experienced team follow the EYFS with a focus on structured educational play. The team are committed to ensuring all chuildren are healthy, happy and ready to move up to our 'big school'. The Nursery is overseen by Emma Farmer and is split into 3 dedicated rooms with their own outdoor areas:

Baby Room (6 weeks to 2 years) - Ladybird

Toddler Room (2-3 Years ) - Caterpillar

Pre-School room (3-5 Years) - Butterfly

The Nursery and Pre-School offers 15 Hours Funded Childcare, plus the brand new Funded 30 Hours Scheme for 3 and 4 Year olds.

The childcare provided mirrors the routines each child has at home including feeding habits, nappy changes, potty training and sleep routines; all made possible through regular contact with a qualified and experienced key person for each child. We work closely with the team in the Nursery to ensure that you and your child will experience a smooth transition into our school.
