Welcome to our Nursery School

"This school truly lives up to its motto 'Be, Belong, Become - with extra sparkle'.  It is, indeed, a little gem in the heart of the community" (Ofsted Report 2023).


"Harrington Nursery School is a very happy place for children to learn.  Unwavering in your desire for every child to SPARKLE.  You put the children at the heart of everything you do." (Ofsted, 2017)


We are an 'OUTSTANDING' 80 place school which offers flexible facilities for children between 3 – 4 years old.  We value every opportunity to work in partnership with the whole school community.


Harrington Nursery School is a distinctive school because....

  • We are winners of the NASEN Excellent Practice in Early Years SEND Award, Nursery World Working with Parents Award and runners up in the National Early Years Pupil Premium Awards.
  • We have achieved the SEND Standards Award.
  • We facilitate learning that inspires children to go in search of wonder, including visits to a wide variety of places and by focusing on learning outside the classroom alongside the 'POWER' of the outsider.
  • We recognise the importance of children, families and staff's well-being and take time to 'spread the happiness'.

Parents comments

Absolutely brilliant. Staff are amazing and willing to help in anyway they can...and my child has learnt to be a lovely well-mannered independent 3 year old ready for big school.

It is a fantastic nursery My daughter has settled very well. Staff have been very supportive. I am very pleased to have made the decision to have sent my daughter here for her early years learning.
