Nursery Admissions

We have a well-established purpose built Nursery with part-time and full time places available. We have excellent indoor and outdoor facilities for our children. Our last Ofsted inspection in May 2024 stated that


‘The school’s motto, ‘serving with love, striving for excellence’, permeates the way in which pupils and staff treat one another. Differences between people are celebrated. Pupils who arrive at the school from different countries are welcomed with open arms. Pupils are very proud of their school. They feel well cared for by staff who know them and their families well. Pupils are friendly and polite, showing patience and understanding to one another. Pupils, including children in the early years, know that they are expected to behave well and they do so. As a result, the school is calm and purposeful. The school has high expectations of pupils’ learning. They benefit from the support that they receive to flourish socially and emotionally.’


‘The school prioritises the teaching of reading. This starts as soon as children begin in the Nursery class where they are actively encouraged to join in with songs and rhymes. They enjoy listening to their teachers read familiar stories aloud so that they can identify and talk about the characters that they know.’


We have highly experienced early years’ practitioners consisting of a specialist EYFS nursery teacher (EYFS Lead), and EYFS specially trained teaching assistants.


If you are interested or know anyone who may be looking for nursery provision, you can ring the school or call in to pick up an application form and arrange a visit to meet the staff and have a look around the Nursery.


Children are admitted to our Nursery following their 3rd birthday if a place is available.

If you would like to apply for a nursery place, please contact school on 0151 709 2572.



All children in the UK are entitled to 15 hours free Early Years provision.
At St Vincent de Paul we offer these hours as full days. (2 days first week, 3 days second week).



Some parents will find they are eligible for 30 hours Early Years provision for their child. School will need your 30 Hour Code and National Insurance Number in order to enrol you for 30 Hour provision. If you do not meet the eligibility criteria, parents/carers have the option to pay for the additional hours. Please speak to the office for more information.
