From their very first visit to the nursery, your child will be assured of an exceptionally warm welcome where their individual needs will be nurtured and supported.
Set in Willday House with its self contained outdoor area and wonderful outlook onto our Forest school area, our Nursery class provides a perfect first stepping stone between home and school.
A welcome from the Head of Early Years
At Truro School Nursery, we offer a curriculum that is both creative and challenging. Our children benefit from highly qualified and experienced teachers who provide the freedom to explore, learn and enjoy our beautiful outside spaces.
I have a strong belief that young children learn best when they are given opportunities to develop their own interests. Our planning ensures all of the pupils at Truro School Nursery experience the benefits of being independent learners, with each child being at the centre of everything we do.
Located within the grounds of Willday House, our setting is a safe and secure environment where learning comes to life. From the core academics of speaking, reading and writing, to the wider aspects of education, such as self-confidence and self-awareness, Truro School Nursery is a place where children flourish in all areas.
I look forward to meeting you in person and building the foundations for your child’s future.
Welcome to Truro School Nursery
Children can join the Nursery the half term after they turn 3. We recommend that pupils attend for at least two full days, gradually increasing their time as the year progresses. The pupils build stamina and are thoroughly well prepared for Reception. By attending a full day, pupils have the opportunity to experience a wide range of learning experiences, which are either teacher led or child initiated.
100% for Speaking, Reading and Writing
From Gruffalo hunts in our enchanted garden to beach trips on the Cornish coast, learning is all part of the fun in the day Nursery. Truro School Pre-Prep achieved a faultless trio of 100% scores for Speaking, Reading and Writing in the county’s latest Early Learning Goals figures. We accredit this outstanding result to doing the groundwork in Nursery. From holding a pencil to phonics, we place strong emphasis on giving pupils the best start in the education system.

Something Different Every Day
We are very proud to be able to offer a unique and meaningful start to children’s learning, which is genuinely built on their individual experiences and own level of understanding. We encourage enthusiastic, creative and independent learners who will go on to love each and every stage of their schooling. We offer a different activity each day taught by a specialist Truro Nursery Pre-Prep teacher such as swimming, forest school, music and drama, German and PE whilst also placing a strong emphasis on the acquisition of the basic skills essential to future learning.
Recording Your Child’s Journey
Every child in the Nursery has a learning journey, which is a very special record of photographs, observations and developmental achievements of their experiences and learning whilst at Nursery. Progress in each area of the curriculum is carefully tracked and monitored and the next steps in their learning are identified and shared with you as parents.
