Located in Dorchester School & Children's Centre, Dorchester Community Nursery has been open since January 2009. The nursery was purpose built as a 27 place, open plan unit, that is very much an integrated part of the school. Access is through the main school entrance & the outdoor play space is set in the heart of the Foundation Stage playground, therefore offering a seamless transition & familiarity for children who will eventually access Dorchester School. Although open plan, the nursery has a separate designated space for 9 baby & young toddlers. The remaining space is dedicated for children over 2 years, with access to both the garden & an outdoor classroom. The nursery was designed with the assistance of Early Years professionals & the teachers of the school to ensure that the highest level of opportunities & learning experiences for your child can be delivered.
