About MCPS Nursery 

Excellent care and education for children aged from two years

Our on-site school-led Nursery will provide excellent care and education for children aged from two years, and will be led by experienced teachers.

MCPS is an inclusive and innovative school and we endeavour to create an environment which will foster a love of learning and offers opportunities for children to work both collaboratively and independently to meet their full potential. Our Nursery will provide a wide range of opportunities and experiences to encourage our youngest children to develop their natural curiosity and thinking skills. In this way they will develop the foundations upon which they will continue to build throughout their school career and beyond.
