Our Nursery Class here at Our Lady and Saint Benedict Catholic Academy

As part of The Newman Catholic Collegiate, Our Lady and St Benedict Catholic Academy welcomes children of all faiths and non to its nursery.   

Utilising a huge outdoor space, our nursery pupils are truly cared for with staff nurturing the development of each child. 

Our Lady and St Benedict offer up to 30 hours of free childcare in its nursery. This is available for all parents who are looking for welcoming, comfortable and cohesive childcare.  

Why is early childcare so important?  

Having access to funded nursery places not only puts children’s development first, but it also helps to reduce associated financial strains. Accessing funded childcare frees up income for other essential needs.  

Knowing that their children are safe in a productive environment is priceless for a parent. 

Aside from financial benefits, having children in a nursery for as long as possible can help aid personal development. Rather than being kept at home due to a lack of funds, children can interact with peers and develop social skills from an earlier age and at a quicker rate than those who don’t. 

Fantastic development opportunities   

Our age-appropriate nursery facilities are designed to spark curiosity and ignite a passion for development. Here's how OLSB ensures this:
