Return to About Us


Welcome to Tenterfield Nursery School.

Tenterfield has a wonderful Community spirit where people really care. We often refer to our ‘Tenterfield Family’ and we hope you will get to experience this warm welcome the moment you walk through the door.

We have a wonderful purpose built learning environment with an extensive outdoor area. We have both Nursery aged (3 to 5 year olds) and 2 year-old provision where families can claim their 15 hour entitlement.

In addition to 15 hours early education the Nursery offers places for working parents who are eligible for 30 hours free childcare.

Our Wraparound services ensure we provide extended care for our children and we are open 7.30am – 5.30pm during term time. We also have a fabulous holiday club for children aged 3 – 8 years open 8am-4pm, during school holidays.

Our safe atmosphere enables our children to develop positive relationships with other children and adults in a caring and sensitive manner. Children develop a love of learning therefore creating a strong foundation for their future education. The wellbeing of our children is important to us. We continually strive to provide a caring and happy environment where children’s individual needs are met.

We are passionate about working in partnership with parents. Positive relationships are at the heart of our work. We believe we can only achieve the very best for our children by having a close relationship with each child’s family. We very much look forward to welcoming you soon.
