Now taking Children from age 2 | NEW Toddler Group


We are delighted to announce that we have expanded our provision, to now accept boys and girls from the age of two years old and offer a number of session options to suit families.

Our facilities include:

  • Term time and holiday care available
  • Highly qualified staff 
  • A dedicated Pre‐Preparatory Matron, backed up by the Clifton College Health Centre
  • Healthy and all‐inclusive snacks, lunch and tea
  • Light and airy rooms with spacious and dedicated playground
  • Extensive resources and equipment inside and outdoors, which includes our Forest School
  • Age appropriate sleeping area
  • Nappies/pull‐ups supplied 
  • Excellent child‐specific feedback form about the day, available on collection of each child
  • Seamless transfer to Reception year group and beyond


To help children settle in and gain a routine, each child must attend a minimum of two sessions per week. Morning sessions (8:30am - 1pm) include a hot lunch and afternoon sessions (1pm-5pm) include a sandwich tea. 'After School Care' is available from 5pm-6pm at an additional charge of £6 per child per day.

Settling in

Starting Nursery or Pre-School can be an anxious time for children and parents alike. We offer a tailored settling in plan for each individual, where parents can spend time with the child and then if they are happy, leave them at the Nursery for an hour or so before collecting them. We will work with you to establish the best approach for you and your child. Here's our Head of Nursery to explain a little more about settling in at Clifton.
