Welcome to 


Our Nursery


Sceptre Nursery opened in 1996 to look after both employees of Eric Wright and children from the local area.  We are currently registered for 26 children (with a maximum of 6 babies).

The nursery is registered with OFSTED and follows the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage).

We are housed in a single storey, purpose built building providing care for children from 3 months to 5 years.  We have a large exploratory outdoor space.

The Nursery opening hours are:


MONDAY to FRIDAY 8.00 AM – 5.45 PM, 51 weeks a year.

We currently have spaces available.  However, spaces are currently limited for our younger baby room spaces.

Please contact the nursery direct if you wish to discuss a place for your child.

Mission Statement


It is our aim at Sceptre Nursery that every child develops a lively, enquiring mind, feels happy, safe, secure and fulfils his/her own potential in every aspect of learning and growth. To achieve this, we provide a well resourced and stimulating environment that:

  • Protects and nurtures the well-being and health of the child

  • Encourages a sense of belonging and active involvement in the education process for children and their families

  • Ensures that opportunities for learning are fair and each child’s contribution and individuality is valued providing fully inclusive practice

  • Recognises that children learn through exploration

  • Values and promotes play as proving meaningful learning

  • Provides a broad balanced curriculum that meets the needs of each child reflecting The Foundation Stage from birth until the end of reception year

  • Provides opportunities for children to take responsibility and to share in decisions that affect them

  • Recognises that the acquisition of knowledge and skills should be planned and appropriate to each child’s needs

We are confident that this approach will give lasting benefits to our children and lay secure foundations for the next stage of schooling.
