Witton Gilbert Nursery is OUTSTANDING - OFSTED June 2016

Witton Gilbert Nursery is an independent nursery operating within Witton Gilbert Primary School.  From September 2018 we will be operating on a smaller scale but will have our own designated outdoor space making for more flexible learning. We work within the guidelines of Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage. Offering Early Years Education to 3 and 4 year olds.


The nursery takes children from the term after they are 3 years old, where vacancies are available. We offer the 15 hours of free nursery education every 3 year old is entitled to but also if you child is entitled to 30 hours of nursery education we are offering 20 hours per week which could increase depending on availability. Our sessions for 15 hours runs from 9 - 12 and 12 - 3, sessions for the 30 hours are 8 - 12 and 12 - 4.
