NURSERY ADMISSIONS

Welcome to St Michael’s Nursery! Known as ‘Mini St Mikes’

We are delighted to announce that Mini St. Mikes is now well established having been officially open since January 2021. The building work commenced in May 2020 during lockdown with the completion ready in time to open its doors to pre-school children as of January 2021.

This long-awaited nursery is a place where children learn through play and are allowed to pursue their natural curiosity. It is a safe, joyful and loving place where everyone is known and valued as a unique individual made in God’s image; and where needs are acknowledged, accepted and met.
