Nurturing Curiosity and Inspiring Imaginations

Welcome to our School

Hello and a very warm welcome to Sandy Lane Nursery and Forest School.

Sandy Lane Nursery and Forest School is Warrington's only Local Authority Maintained Nursery School,  we are based in central Warrington, Cheshire. This means, like primary and secondary schools, we have a headteacher and all our rooms are led by fully qualified teachers. We are proud to be rated Outstanding by Ofsted.

Our modern, light and airy nursery building is fully accessible and is set in extensive landscaped grounds.

Our school includes provision for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, as well as dedicated specialist provision for children with SEND. We provide a high quality and well-resourced, safe, exciting and inclusive learning environment for children, full of stimulating, inspiring learning opportunities. We also have our own on-site Forest School!

We love our school! It is a pretty special place and it is led by a team of highly qualified and dedicated staff with a passion for Early Years. At the heart of our work with children are the relationships we have with families and together we regard ourselves as a learning community.  

We hope that what you see on the school’s website stirs enough interest for you to take the next step and arrange to see our school first hand - you are sure to get a feel for what we are about as soon as you walk in!

We hope to welcome you and your family soon and to invite you to be part of the Sandy Lane family!
