‘Laying the foundations for life’
We strive to provide the highest quality childcare facilities and personnel for the social, personal, cultural and religious advancement of the child.
Ghanshyam Nursery School was established in 2001 after the temple purchased the Education Building with the aim to provide facilities to community including educational development.
We provide care and education for young children between the ages of 18 months to 5 years. English is spoken as the first language, with Gujarati being spoken as a second language.
We are Ofsted Registered (Number EY408297) and accept children from 18 months – 5 years.
Our hours of opening are 8:00am to 5:00pm and provide a mixture of warm vegetarian meals cooked on the premises.
The nursery is open for approximately 51 weeks of the year. We close for the Hindu New Year (Ankoot) for one day (if Mon-Fri) and for the period between Christmas and New Year.
The fees are payable monthly in advance and apply even when children are absent.
We are a member of the Early Years Partnership and offer Council funding, where available, for 3 & 4 year olds. We also accept Child Care Vouchers as part of salary sacrifice scheme from parents.
We aim to lay the foundations for life, giving young children the very best start. The school equipment and furniture has been purchased with the educational needs of the children in mind; such that they can develop and explore their environment according to ability and age. We offer a warm secure environment that allows each child to develop at their own pace. The outside equipped play area is an added attraction.
