Silverdale Nursery

Promoting the Joy of Learning



Silverdale Nursery is located in a purpose built premises in the grounds of Silverdale Academy Primary School. We offer term time places for children aged 2- 5 years. Our fully qualified staff plan a wide range of activities to support children’s development and learning to help them achieve their full potential. Children are able to freely access the outdoor area where staff have planned stimulating activities, including Forest School, to enhance their learning.

We work closely with parents/carers to ensure we are meeting each child’s individual needs and planning for their interests.

We understand the importance of working together with professionals as a team to achieve the best outcomes for your child. The Nursery has strong links with local schools, in particular Silverdale Primary Academy, health teams and specialist workers to support children who may be in need of some extra help and also aid transition into school. Additionally, we participate in the East Sussex Healthy Active Little Ones programme and Early Communication Project
We are eligible to receive government funding to enable children to access free education and care.

This is:

  • 3- 5 year olds for 15 hours per week for 38 weeks per year and 30 hours for eligible children.
  • 2 year olds for 15 hours per week subject to eligibility

It has brought me out of my shell. It has made me feel really valued as a person and part of a team. I'm more fulfilled in life.

It's made a big difference. My confidence and self-esteem have improved. I've made lots of friends - especially with other volunteers. (Taken from the 2022 volunteer survey)

We love to play outside. Also painting and playing in the play kitchen. The sessions have helped my child come out of their shell.
