About St.Mary's Nursery

Setting and Facilities


Set amongst trees and woodland, next to Battle's historic parish Church, our location is perfect for enjoying the outdoors, and has easy access to the High Street, offering excellent learning opportunities such as visiting the shops or going to the library.

Inside, the light and airy Church Hall provides a busy yet homely environment to enable your child to play, learn and achieve, as well as areas for rest and quiet time.

All children are catered for in the main hall, with one area sectioned off and equipped to meet the needs of our younger children. The Nursery has a separate kitchen for preparing light meals and snacks and a secure outside play area. The Nursery is accessible to all and is approached via the Church car park, offering a safe place for parents to drop off and collect children.

Our aim is to create a family atmosphere and believe that children benefit from learning and interacting with each other, and encourage opportunities for the youngest and oldest to play, rest or eat together.

We open 48 weeks a year, Monday to Friday, 8am - 5pm, with an option to book full or part time places, including term time only.

In St Mary's Nursery it is our goal to provide as many opportunities as possible to support children's development to prepare them for school. We do this by:

Providing opportunities to communicate through play, talking and listening to children and acting as role models in the way we communicate with one another and with parents and carers.

  • Offering a range of indoor and outdoor activities, whether they are running around, playing ball games, exploring the environment or mark making.

  • Physical development is also about healthy living and we promote healthy eating, good hygiene and personal care.

  • Creating an environment where children are welcomed, and kept safe and secure. We aim to build positive relationships with parents and children, recognising that every child is unique and special.

  • Opportunities to develop literacy and numeracy skills are embedded in everything we do, such as sharing a book together or counting out cups and plates at lunchtime. Children begin to develop an understanding of the world as we explore our local environment and embrace differences and similarities between us. Children have daily opportunities to share in music and singing, and explore creative and expressive arts using different media and textures.

St. Mary's Nursery is a Christian based setting that builds on Christian beliefs and morals, however we are an inclusive setting and welcome families from all walks of life, believing that we are all God's children and every child is equal.
