South Normanton Nursery School is a local authority (Derbyshire County Council) maintained nursery school. We provide outstanding education for children aged three and four years.

Our Nursery school plays a vital part in our community as we work alongside local businesses and organisations and taking part in local festivals and events. We have strong links with all the family of schools within South Normanton and Pinxton and with local Teaching Schools as we provide the first stepping stones for children’s learning and into the education system.

As a nursery we believe that children learn through play and that their learning environment should be creative, inspiring and rich in learning opportunities.




I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to South Normanton Nursery School. Since being appointed as Head teacher in April 2015, I have been in awe of the outstanding care and education that is provided by an amazing team in a wonderful environment. I am deeply passionate about the education and care of children and am very proud of the strong culture within our school that promotes the idea of 'everybody being a learner', staff and children alike. I have the pleasure of reassuring our parents, giving them peace of mind and security that their child’s needs and requirements are being met through exceptionally high standards.

I look forward to meeting you all in school as we travel together on this journey, shaping your child’s future together.
