Hallfield First

Home from home

We love caring for children and helping families to navigate the challenges of early parenthood. We’re incredibly proud of the home-from-home nursery experience we offer; our families know their children will be safe and happy in the care of our kind and experienced staff. For a nursery with a big heart, there’s nowhere quite like Hallfield.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is an important time in your child's physical and emotional development. Watch our short video to understand what makes Hallfield School's EYFS offering so good.

Why Hallfield Nursery?


People & Relationships

We strive to be a nursery where children and their families feel at home. Central to this is the strong relationships we sow. Whilst all our staff will play a part in making Hallfield so special, every child has a named key person to look after their individual needs. The key person works alongside parents to ensure a strong continuity of care, so don’t be surprised if they want to know how your child slept, what they did last night or what they’re doing at the weekend, it’s because they want to make the most of every day! There is an infinite amount of research that backs up our view; a close, open relationship between parents and their key person leads to a happier, healthier and more engaged child.


Daily Routine

Young children thrive on structure and we strive to provide consistency in everything we do. Each day includes a hearty breakfast, free play, singing, story time, lunch and a nap for those who need it. We do our best to follow home routines as much as possible, so children get into the groove of life at Hallfield First quickly, allowing them to maximise the opportunities on offer.


We welcome children to our nursery from 3 months old. However, families must commit to the school from Reception, before they can join the nursery, where places are offered on a first come, first serve basis.
