Weston Way Nursery School "'Home from Home' where as a family, we play, learn and grow in our journey together, shaping the future."

Early years North Hertfordshire District



The Nursery was built in 1942 as a day nursery for the children of mothers working for the war effort.  It was open long hours and accepted babies and children under five.  There was a Matron, a Sister and a team of Nursery Nurses.  In 1946 it became a nursery school under the control of the Education Authority.  Over the years the long hours have been reduced and are now in line with Primary Schools.  In 2012, we celebrated our 70th Anniversary it was a very special year indeed.  We are now heading towards our 80th year!

The school is situated in the south-west of Baldock. It is a single storey building set in an acre and a half of beautiful grounds, which have been designated as an Educational Nature Reserve, and where the children can really appreciate and benefit from the environment.

We offer part time and full-time places, which are allocated in accordance with the Hertfordshire County Council Admissions Policy.  The children are admitted rising four in September and attend for three hours for either five mornings or five afternoons each week. In 2016 we introduced 30-hour places. The Nursery offers extended provision between the hours of 8am-5pm (4pm on a Friday).
