We at St. John the Baptist Nursery Class provide a welcoming and nurturing environment where our children are encouraged to be Successful, Hardworking, Included, Nurturing and Excellent.

Together We SHINE 

Whilst learning through play our children explore, make sense of the world around them, express themselves and have fun. We are passionate about our children’s development taking into account each of their individual interests, needs and abilities providing meaningful learning experiences and a supportive environment.  We value our partnership with parents and carers, working together to get the best possible outcome for our children.
