About the School

Seaton Carew Nursery School was opened in 1973 and is the only ‘Stand Alone Nursery School’ in Hartlepool . The school is situated within a small low-rise housing estate. It is within easy walking distance to shops and local services.

The school building is one storey and semi open plan in its layout. There are three doors leading to the outside, one of which leads to a covered way where learning takes place in the open air, whatever the weather. There is a small grassed area, as well as a paved area.

The school garden is well established and is used by the children as part of the learning environment.

The open plan indoor learning environment and the spacious outdoor learning environment are staffed by teachers  who work as a team to plan and deliver an appropriate curriculum to meet the needs of your child.

The nursery provision is for 26am and pm places. The school is able to offer Breakfast Club and Lunch Time cub for families to buy into as an extended addition to their Free Nursery Entitlement hours.

The commitments made in this website are based upon our shared vision and aims and will be achieved by developing a sense of trust between us. We do hope that the website is helpful. If you require further information please do not hesitate to ask. I am available most days and private appointments can be made through the office. We welcome ideas and suggestions that will contribute to our work with your child. Thank you for taking the time to read the information provided. This document relates to the school year commencing 2013/14.
