We provide a caring, inviting and happy atmosphere in which children from the age of 3 can take their first steps in education. 

Welcome to the HCJS Nursery

We provide a personal and nurturing environment in which children from the term before they turn 3, can take their first magical moments in our exceptional setting. With our experienced staff,  you can be confident that your child will be encouraged to explore, discover and have the tools to become lifelong learners.

A flourishing start

With us, your child will build their confidence and grow their self-esteem within a vibrant and exciting curriculum. Through structured activities, purposeful play and supportive relationships, they will be encouraged to embrace every area of learning in the Early Years. We will also look to develop the whole child, preparing them thoroughly, for the adventures that lie ahead in their educational journey.

Nursery Pastoral Care

A secure and happy environment

In the shadows of the beautiful Cathedral, our Nursery setting offers a safe, secure and stimulating environment with modern facilities and enclosed outdoor space. Each day offers a new experience with carefully planned activities built around each child’s individual needs and interests, in and out of the classroom.

The staff in the HCJS Nursery are warm and kind. They truly understood our daughter and she flourished in their care. Each day she skipped in and was engaged in wonderful activities that were targeted to her age so well, but also had an underlying structure to prepare her for school.

The care and attention she received was excellent and having moved from an ‘outstanding’ rated nursery in the South East, we were so pleased to find that the HCJS Nursery outperformed this on all levels.


Thank you for making our daughter's first term at HCJS so lovely for her. She has grown in confidence so much and tells anyone who will listen about how much she loves nursery!
