Questions & Answers

Each year we offer parents the opportunity to come in and take part in the class with their child. These sessions are limited to parents and grandparents (sorry no siblings for insurance reasons) and can be booked in advance (one family at a time)
We don't encourage children to miss any sessions, but you can talk to us about any arrangements you have made and we can advise on the best course of action

    We’re very happy with how well our little girl has settled in to nursery and are confident this has given her a great foundation in education for starting school in September. Thank you.

    We have been very happy with the care offered to our son. The monthly letter and the prompt notes are particularly helpful… We have nothing but praise for Ballymena Nursery School and would whole heartedly recommend it.

    Ballymena Nursery School continues to exceed my expectations! The staff are kid, nurturing and professional – this is not only evident from what I witness during drop off and pick up etc. but from my son’s growth in confidence and his love of Nursery. I highly recommend Ballymena Nursery School to anyone who will listen. Thank you for all that you do.
