Sacriston nursery and toddler group

Our nursery at Sacriston Academy provides a caring, fun and safe environment where every child benefits from our teacher-led approach.

Our nursery offers free part time places to three-year-olds which are divided equally between morning (8.50-11.50am) and afternoon (12.30-3.30pm) sessions. 

Why Sacriston Academy nursery? 

Placing your child in our nursery enables them to become familiar with their environment and the staff members in it, making their transition into primary school far easier.

The benefits of a teacher-led nursery

Did you know that a young child's education journey starts a long time before their reception year? We offer an education-based nursery setting with a qualified teacher who provides a stimulating and challenging learning environment. Each child has their own key worker who provides engaging and fun activities, ensuring children are excited and ready for learning from the moment they enter our doors.

Teaching within our nursery focuses heavily on vocabulary and storytelling - all children should be hearing thousands of words every day in order to aid their early writing skills. We also teach letters through a fantastic early reading programme called Read, Write Inc, which gives them a fantastic head start for their reception year. 

Toddler group

Starting from Friday 7 June, we will be running a toddler group for children under three. This will give your child the opportunity to come into school with an adult so that when they are three, they will feel more confident about attending nursery on their own. 

Get in touch

We always welcome parents and children into school to see our wonderful, new facilities. Please give us a ring to organise a tour on 0191 371 0777 or email us at
