Nursery Admissions Policy


We would like to welcome you to Whitehill Community Academy and our Nursery unit! We look forward to working with both you and your child.  We operate on open door policy and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask us.

Whitehill Community Academy’s nursery is purpose built and was recently fortunate to obtain a grant from DfE to expand allowing us to offer 30 Hour Free Childcare places.  We are rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and provide quality childcare for children aged 3 to 4.

We deliver the best childcare and education to the children by ensuring that all our nursery staff have in-depth knowledge and understanding gained through continuing professional development in education and higher-level qualification training.  We have a team of long servicing staff, who have a range of childcare qualifications ranging from Nursery Nurse to Qualified Teachers Status. Our experienced energetic highly qualified established staff team will make your child’s day at nursery fun and educational

We pride ourselves on providing a safe, exciting and enjoyable nursery where children thrive as they learn. We have created a wonderful environment that is innovative, stimulating and inspiring for children and staff alike.

Come and see our large, bright rooms where your child has room to play and explore, making new friends with our experienced long-term staff team. We have a fantastic location and facilities, allowing continuous access to our extensive outside areas.  Our spacious rooms are bright, well-resourced and specially designed to promote learning and development within a nurturing and stimulating environment.
