Our Early Years Rooms

The play and learning environment is designed to encourage children to carefully construct their own learning through independence and a choice of play experiences and activities.

We aim to nurture and encourage your child's natural ability, to promote their social, emotional, intellectual and physical development, and to help build strong foundations for their future learning.

Nursery, Pre-School and Pre-Reception are open 50 weeks per year, closing for just two weeks at Christmas.

Nursery - Age 1 till the September after they turn 2

Pre School - From the September after they turn 2 

Pre Reception - From the September after they turn 3

With many years of experience managing the rapid development of very young children, we have carefully adapted our offering over the years to maximise every child's happiness and success.  By creating form entry year groups from Pre School upwards, friendships groups can easily be created with children they will then go on to school with.  

Our promise to you...

  • We will provide a safe and stimulating environment for your child.
  • We employ staff who are qualified and experienced but also show enthusiasm and commitment in providing high quality childcare.
  • We recognise that each child is an individual who is respected and valued.
  • We provide for different cultures, languages and religions.
  • We will work in partnership with you so that you child gets the very best of their time here at The Ryleys School.
The school’s Early Years’ success replicates the school’s main objective and ethos, which is its ability to blend high academic achievement along with the happiness and well-being of every child.  

“leaders plan a highly effective curriculum that meets the age stage and needs of the children.” They went on to say that “children’s personal and emotional development is a strength of the setting.”

I could not be happier with The Ryleys, after just one week, we knew we had made the right decision. My daughter absolutely loves The Nursery, it's wonderful to see her so happy.

Children can join our very popular and frequently oversubscribed Nursery from 12 months and will continue through to Pre-School and Pre-Reception as their Ryleys journey continues. 

Given the popularity of our Early Years department, we strongly suggest early application, typically 12 months in advance of your preferred start date, to avoid disappointment.
