Selhurst Nursery School
Established in 1993 as Selhurst Early Years Centre under social services control, the centre was transferred to the education authority in 1998. Since designation as a Children’s Centre in May 2007, a range of services for young children and their parents/carers have developed alongside the nursery classes. Now known as Selhurst Nursery School and Children’s Centre, the school federated with Crosfield Nursery School and Children’s Centre on 1st September 2016. Governance is provided through a single Governing Board with responsibility for both schools and their associated services.
As one of Croydon's five Maintained Nursery Schools, we are committed to providing affordable and accessible, high-quality education to children between the ages of 2 and 4. We currently offer 78 part-time places for 3-4 year olds and a further 8 places for 2-3 year olds in an integrated provision, equipped with a large outdoor space and designated on-site Forest School area.
We are a fully inclusive setting, and work closely with a range of professionals to ensure children's needs are identified early, so that appropriate support can be put in place to enable children to reach their full potential.
A reflective and long-standing staff team enables strong relationships to develop with families across generations. Being co-located with a Children's Centre Hub helps to ensure that families have direct access to a wide range of support services for them and their child. Selhurst is so much more than just a Nursery School for your child; it is for you and your whole family.
Visits to our school are strongly encouraged, so please do get in touch and come and see the wonderful provision that is on offer.
