Welcome to
Sceptre Nursery

Sceptre Nursery opened in 1996 to look after both employee’s children and children from the local area. We are currently registered for 26 children (with a maximum of 6 babies).

The nursery bases its standards on the Early Years Foundation Stage run by the Department for Education and Skills.

We are housed in a single storey, purpose built building providing care for children from 3 months to 5 years. We have a large secure garden newly re-vamped after receiving a £20,000 grant which provides an exciting and stimulating environment for the children.

Staff at the nursery are celebrating after being handed in June 2010, the first ever South Ribble Borough Council Healthy Eating Award for Children’s Nurseries.

The scheme saw local nurseries given the challenge of improving children’s diets by reducing salt, sugar and fat and upping fruit and vegetables at mealtimes.

Tracy Hood, Nursery Manager, said she was thrilled that Sceptre Nursery had scooped the award. She said the nursery staff had found the children had more energy and were calmer when they weren’t eating food containing lots of additives.

The Nursery opening hours are MONDAY to FRIDAY 8 AM – 5.45 PM, 51 weeks a year.

WE CURRENTLY HAVE SPACES AVAILABLE ACROSS ALL AGE GROUPS.   PLEASE CONTACT NURSERY DIRECT IF YOU WISH TO DISCUSS A PLACE FOR YOUR CHILD.

Mission Statement

It is our aim at Sceptre Nursery that every child develops a lively, enquiring mind, feels happy, safe, secure and fulfils his/her own potential in every aspect of learning and growth. To achieve this, we provide a well resourced and stimulating environment that:

  • Protects and nurtures the well-being and health of the child
  • Encourages a sense of belonging and active involvement in the education process for children and their families
  • Ensures that opportunities for learning are fair and each child’s contribution and individuality is valued, irrespective of gender, ethnicity, age or background
  • Recognises, promotes and protects the language and symbols of our own and other cultures
  • Recognises that children learn through exploration
  • Values and promotes play as proving meaningful learning
  • Provides a broad balanced curriculum that meets the needs of each child reflecting The Foundation Stage from birth until the end of reception year
  • Provides opportunities for children to take responsibility and to share in decisions that affect them
  • Recognises that the acquisition of knowledge and skills should be planned and appropriate to each child’s needs

We are confident that this approach will give lasting benefits to our children and lay secure foundations for the next stage of schooling.
