Our Nursery

Cullercoats Primary School established a Nursery and 'Croc' Wraparound facility for our nursery pupils in September 2017. Please see the link below on the 30 hour entitlement. For many years both the school and the community had wished for a Nursery provision here at Cullercoats and that wish is now a reality.

The school is able to support families within our area and build upon the excellent foundations that you have developed at home. It is our vision to provide high quality education and development for your child in a nurturing and caring environment where they can feel safe, supported and reach their full potential. Having a Nursery here at Cullercoats enables the school to develop meaningful and supportive relationships from the outset with families within our community so that we can work in partnership to encourage, support and motivate your child as they move through our school.

There will be a seamless transition into our Reception classes which will build upon your child’s early development and skills. Our aim is to prepare your child for the next stage in their learning so that they leave Cullercoats happy and ready for their High School education. The school will further support our many working families by offering before and after school care (Cullercoats Children's Club) to our pupils and a ‘wraparound’ facility for our youngest pupils (Cullercoats Crocs). The school has been, and looks set to remain, an integral part of the community.

We look forward to you and your child being part of our school and sharing our journey so that ‘Together – we can develop a love of learning’.
