WELCOME TO OXCLOSE COMMUNITY NURSERYWe know that starting nursery school is an important and exciting time for children and parents. It is a time when children become more independent, develop friendships and share happy experiences with other children. We strive to make our nursery a place where positive and close relationships with children and parents are welcomed and valued. We are a Maintained Local Authority Nursery School with a Headteacher and staffed by qualified teachers and experienced nursery nurses. We provide quality education and childcare for children aged two through to reception age. In our safe and stimulating environment children learn through play, developing into confident and resourceful learners. We maintain close links with Oxclose Church and work in partnership with local primary and comprehensive schools in the Oxclose area. We are part of Sunderland Nursery School’s ‘Partners in Pedagogy’ working together to inspire and lead early years education through research and innovative practice. I hope the web site will answer any queries you may have and provide you with an insight into the work of our nursery.
