Longden CE Primary School and Nursery

Welcome and Contact Information

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.

Parent's Testomonial

Jessica - Parent of Carly

"Longden Nursery is in my mind the best Nursery/pre-school in the country! I couldn’t wish for anybody better or nicer to look after my little girl than the team at Longden. Everything about Longden Nursery is faultless, I’m in awe of the enthusiasm, hard work, imagination and effort that is put in by all involved to make it such a magical place for children to enjoy & grow in"
