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

    Ballymena Nursery School is excellent in every meaning of the word. My daughter has loved it, as have I and it is going to be difficult leaving. I would like to thank all of the staff who have developed my daughter’s confidence and prepared her for primary school

    My boys are very happy in the nursery and enjoy going everyday. I can go to work happy knowing that they are in a safe caring environment having fun and learning new things.

    Staff are extremely friendly and I always feel very welcome. It’s lovely to see your child excited and running into school everyday and returning with a smile. So glad that I picked Ballymena Nursery for my first child, I now know for sure that my younger son will also hopefully attend.

    I have watched my little girl grow from a little toddler into such a big girl who enjoys going to Nursery and very often talks excitedly about her teachers and her friends.
    Fantastic Nursery School with fantastic staff!
