Ripe Nursery School is situated in an idyllic setting, next to Ripe Church yet only a five minute drive from the A22 and the A27.  Our staff are caring, experienced and well qualified and the Nursery School is led by an experienced qualified teacher.  We support children’s social, emotional and educational development with an exceptional ratio of staff to children.  Our location means that we are in the heart of the community and the children enjoy regular visits to places of interest in the surrounding countryside.  We welcome children into the Nursery School from age one.

We are thrilled to share the news that we achieved an ‘Outstanding’ grading in every area during our July 2016 inspection.  You can read the full report here section.

Our ethos

We provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each child, whatever their stage of development.  Children flourish when they are happy, interested and engaged in play situations.  Our warm, friendly environment helps children to settle quickly and grow in confidence, and our ‘Key Person’ system enables staff to plan exciting activities based on children’s interests, needs and progress.  We work in partnership with parents to give children the best possible start in their early years.

We would be delighted to show you the Nursery School. Download our latest newsletter from the news page.
