Elfrida Primary School

Success for today; prepared for tomorrow. Nothing is beyond our reach.

New Nursery starters


We would like to wish a very warm welcome to all of our new families to Saplings Nursery. This page is just for you and we hope that you will find it useful and interesting to look at. You can see the adults that your child will be working with, have a virtual tour around the inside and outside space of the Nursery and look through some information that we think you will find useful for before your child starts with us. 


We will be in touch as soon as possible, once we know exactly when arrangements can be made to be able to start coming into Nursery. 


Nursery Staff Team


Meet the team that your child will be working with and that you and your family will get to know.

Uniform is not compulsary in the Nursery.  


But, if you did want to purchase a school jumper then we have some reduced price nursery uniform in the school which you can buy in September.







As your child will soon be starting school it is important to get them into a good routine for bedtime and sleeping.
