Early Years

Our Early Years Leader is Miss M Baker               Early Years Coordinator Mrs K Harrison






Due to high demand we have created a fabulous new nursery environment for your children. In the large purpose created facility we have a weath of exciting and engaging opportunities which mean your children make a flying start at Ridgeway. Nursery also has its own totally enclosed outdoor space with several zones for your children to develop their range of skills.


We have highly qualified staff and have a full time qualified teacher to lead nursery.


If you would like your child to join Ridgeway's nursery we currently offer parents 4 choices for your 15 free hour entitlement when starting nursery:


1) Morning sessions

2) Afternoon sessions

3) 2.5 days (Monday all day, Tuesday all day and Wednesday morning)

4) 2.5 days (Wednesday afternoon, Thursday all day and Friday all day)


Parents can choose to supplement these hours by purchasing half day sessions at an extra £10. Therefore if you wanted 'full time' nursery provision for your child it would cost £50 per week. Lunch is included in all sessions (half days and full days) as well as milk or water and snack.


We also now offer the 30 hours free childcare for those parents who are working. For more information please click on the link below, or pop into school and we can explain it all to you. 





We have two bright, vibrant and engaging classrooms for our Reception children. This exellent provision extends to outdoors where over £20,000 has been spent to ensure the learning indoors continues outdoors.


The curriculum is set up to ensure children are able to make excellent progress through experiences, hands on activities and skill progression.
