About Us

Southover Nursery is renowned for its warmth, care and expertise.  We are characterised by our happy, relaxed and nurturing ethos and have a reputation for being a lovely place for children to be.

We recognise that all children are unique and welcome children of all cultures and backgrounds, as well as those with various specific needs. We continually use our knowledge of individual children’s interests, needs and stages of development to provide balanced and varied experiences that enable them to develop at their own pace. We place great emphasis on the need for praise and encouragement, with the aim of developing children’s self-esteem and confidence.

At Southover Nursery School we are:


We welcome all children to our nursery and provide equal opportunities for all children to participate and contribute regardless of their differences, needs or backgrounds. We support and encourage all of our children in accessing all that nursery has to offer. We strive to enable all children to achieve their full potential.

Responsible and Respectful

The safety and wellbeing of the children we look after is our top priority and do our very best to ensure children feel safe and happy. We treat each other with care, respect and kindness and pride ourselves on being polite, approachable, supportive and non-judgemental.


We are a small family-run nursery with dedicated and experienced staff.

Promoting kindness, confidence and collaboration

We encourage children to be considerate and kind towards each other and to develop good manners. We want our children to feel secure and confident, and have a strong sense of self-worth. Fundamental to this is a close relationship between home and nursery. We believe working in partnership with parents/carers is essential as together, we can ensure children’s needs are met and that they really can achieve their true potential.
