Longden CE Primary School and Nursery

Welcome and Contact Information

"Inspirational teaching that provides exciting and interesting

activities that meets the needs of all children" Ofsted


The Nursery at Longden offers a unique place for children to start on their learning adventure in a nurturing environment.  Set in a wonderful part of rural Shropshire, yet only 5 miles from Shrewsbury, the nursery includes plenty of outdoor space, a woodland area, kitchen garden, mud kitchen, free range chickens, music, regular Spanish lessons, PE and daily phonics, as well as access to the whole school grounds, hall and dining room. The Nursery is based in a modern, well equipped building.

Our Ethos ~
Inspired by the philosophy of Reggio Emilia and Maria Montessori, we at Longden Nursery seek to create an environment that is engaging, responsive and stimulating and caring; this encourages and nurtures a child’s natural curiosity and ability, developing active and creative minds. Empowering each child to realise their full potential to become a unique independent individual is achieved through a sense of understanding, building self esteem and positive learning experiences and relationships.
