The Nursery School and Pre-Prep at Ardingly provide an outstanding introduction to education at the Early Years (EYFS) and KS1 stage of school life.
Our Creative Curriculum provides the experiences for each child to discover their particular strengths and talents. Here, happiness and fulfilment spring from learning and working together as a community in a safe, caring environment.
We nurture each child as an individual, building the vital moral foundation and interpersonal skills to become a valued and useful member of society.
Your involvement and communication are central to your child's success and there are numerous ways to become involved in school life.
All this takes place within the extensive grounds of Ardingly College. Beyond our beautiful school building, we take advantage of the outdoors. Forest School, walks in the woods and lessons in our outdoor classroom are all part of school life.
Please come and see us. I ‘d love to share with you our children’s enthusiasm for learning. It’s really the best illustration of what makes Ardingly the natural place for your child to grow and thrive.

NEW OPENING HOURS AND YEAR-ROUND COVER IN THE NURSERY AND PRE-PREP TO MEET THE NEEDS OF WORKING PARENTS.
From September 2018, parents will be able to be drop their child off in the Nursery from 7.00am. Staff will be happy to receive children in their pyjamas and will dress them, clean their teeth and provide them with a tasty breakfast to start the day.
Nursery will also be open until 7.00pm when you can collect your child, washed, fed and ready for bed, so that on arrival at home you can have some special times reading stories and enjoying each other’s company, without pressure.
This service will run for a full 50 weeks of the year, with the Nursery only closing for two weeks during the Christmas break.
