Kingsdown Nursery School is a purpose-built Local Authority school serving the families of Birchwood and the surrounding areas. It is extremely well-equipped both inside and out and has a fully enclosed spacious outdoor area.


Our Nursery School is situated off Woodfield Avenue next to the Leslie Manser Primary School on Kingsdown Road.  There is onsite parking, bike racks and a bike shelter.

We aim for children to be happy and confident while they enjoy exploring and investigating.  We provide a wide range of stimulating experiences and activities.

We help children on the start of their school journey by following the Early Years Foundation Stage and encouraging development across the curriculum in a caring and educationally stimulating environment.

We provide a positive ethos in which all children and their    families are equally valued.

We welcome all children and celebrate their abilities, gender, cultural and ethnic background.


Children flourish during their time at Kingsdown Nursery School.


We offer children 15 or 30 free hours per week of early education and care, which are allocated in either morning, afternoon or full-day places. You are able to buy additional sessions.  We also have before and after school care and a lunch club that children can attend.

We take children from 2 and 3 years old and they stay with us until they go to Primary School.


Our Nursery School is well staffed by experienced teachers, Nursery Nurses and Early Years Practitioners, who have a wealth of knowledge about child development.  We also welcome the training of students from the local Colleges and University.
