Welcome to St. Mary's Nursery Unit

Our Nursery is a single unit setting, attached to, and very much part of, St. Mary's Primary School, Killyclogher. We cater for 26 girls and boys, aged between 3 and 4 years old. Our ethos focuses on working in partnership with parents and carers, to provide a stimulating, positive and enriching experience for each child, where they are happy, safe and learning.

We operate an 'Open Door' Policy towards parents and carers so that children may be best supported in their learning and in their transition to school life and so that they see the adults in their lives build respectful and open communication links.

Learning is planned through progressive activities in the indoor and outdoor play areas, Circle Time activities, daily routines including a buffet snack, rhymes and jingles, music and story time. These activities are supplemented by regular trips outside the Nursery and by visitors who join us to enrich the experiences of the children. The class teacher, Miss Leonia Mimnagh and the Nursery Assistant, Mrs Claire Rutledge, strive to ensure that the children play and work with high levels of independence, creativity and self-esteem, engaging fully in challenging and rewarding activities.
