Joining information

Children can join the Pre-Nursery at Ardingly from the age of two. We require a minimum of two sessions per week, all the better to settle in. Choose from sessions for the morning, the afternoon, or a full day.

Is this your first experience of education for your child? You’ll want to be kept properly up-to-date and informed. Rest assured, there is ample one-to-one communication. Tapestry (your child's online leraning journal), weekly newsletters, curriculum information and events to keep you in touch. Together, we can ensure your child has the best possible experience.

For Pre-Nursery children, in particular, tell us how key developmental steps like potty training or afternoon naps should be managed. By following the methods used at home, disruption is smoothed away.

From Pre-Nursery, moving up to the Nursery School continues our pupils’ education in a familiar and supportive environment.


Join our Nursery group in the September after turning three and we require a minimum of four sessions per week. It’s the best way to develop learning and prepare for Reception. Choose sessions for either the morning, the afternoon, or for full days.

From our Nursery School, your child can move up to the Pre-Prep and continue their education in a familiar and supportive environment.
