“I loved it and every day I wanted to go to school and see my friends and teachers”.

Oak Tree Nursery
The Oak Tree Nursery is a kind and caring place for children to start their experience of school and to develop a love of learning. It has direct access to an outside garden, which is a secure play area with safe, interesting play equipment. The staff nurture the children, who can then move onto the Early Years at Devonshire House School. The School takes pupils through to their entry to Senior Schools and there is a strong sense of family and community.
The Oak Tree Nursery is for children from two and a half years of age.
Options for Monday to Friday sessions:
- Morning: 8.45am to 11.45am
