Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Welcome to Nursery

At the start of your child’s journey through education, we offer your child the opportunity to flourish and grow through child initiated play in a welcoming, friendly and interactive environment. The children have free flow access to both the indoor and outdoor environment and they also get to explore our two forest school sites weekly.
