About Us


Dundela Infants' School Nursery Unit is an integral part of Dundela Infants' School. The nursery has two full day classes of 26, each staffed by a teacher and a nursery assistant. The nursery day begins at 8.45 am until 1.30 pm and school dinners are provided. The children have access to a wide range of resources both inside and outside and we have dedicated and experienced staff who work alongside the children. Our aim is to facilitate and develop their learning in the play activities that they choose.

We strive to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment, so that all children reach their potential by:

  • Promoting a positive behaviour and discipline policy
  • Promoting a caring ethos where there is mutual respect between staff and children
  • Ensuring an engaging environment with lots to investigate and explore
  • Encouraging a wide and varied range of visitors to nursery, to extend the curriculum
  • Ensuring the environment is safe and secure
  • Encouraging parents to work with staff as partners in their child’s education
  • Keeping parents informed of what happens in nursery, through monthly newsletters, school website updates and class updates via the see-saw app
