school logo Kendal Nursery @ Brantfield

Kendal Nursery School has been looking after children for 75 years and is based in a beautiful house and gardens known as Brantfield.  We are different to other settings in the local area as we are a Nursery School maintained by Cumbria County Council.  The numbers of Nursery Schools across England are getting smaller as Local Authorities look for cheaper options, but Kendal is very lucky that it still has a thriving Nursery School in the area.

As a Nursery school we are focused on early learning and are managed by a Headteacher with qualified teachers in every room.  This doesn’t mean we teach formally, we plan carefully a well-balanced curriculum which allows children to thrive and be fully prepared to transfer to Primary School.   Our learning is through play and carefully planned adult interactions both inside and outside in our fabulous grounds.  Children have lots of opportunities for outdoor play and exploration whilst in Nursery and the 3 and 4 year old's will also have weekly forest school sessions.

We have received Outstanding from our last three Ofsted inspections and are always constantly improving and developing our provision.
