General Information

Welcome to our Nursery!


As of September 2016 North Tawton Pre-school closed as a parent committee run pre-school and became part of North Tawton primary school as a maintained nursery. Here in the nursery the children (known as Acorns) play and learn alongside the reception children (known as Oaks) and together we form the foundation unit. 


We are open term time and accept children from the age of 2 with or without funding. Some 2 year olds are eligible for funding for up to 15 hours per week/570 hours per year, starting the term after the child's 2nd birthday. All 3 year olds are eligible for 15 funded hours per week/570 per year, starting the term after the child's 3rd birthday. We are also offering places for children eligible for the extended entitlement also known as 30 hours funding, for more information on this please visit the 'Childcare choices' website.

Extra hours may be bought subject to availability, please ask for further details.


We have a fantastic foundation unit staff team, who will happily chat with you and answer any questions you may have, either about your child or their learning. If you are considering applying for a place we would be more than happy to show you around, please contact the school on 01837 82284 or email us direct on  to arrange a visit.
