ROSEMARY NURSERY SCHOOL
VISION

.

Welcome to Rosemary Nursery. We are situated in St Jude's behind Cabot Circus in the city centre. Rosemary Nursery is the oldest nursery school in Bristol, dating back to the 1920s. 

 

We are proud to be part of a diverse community and welcome families from many different backgrounds.

 

We have been described by Ofsted as 'a very beautiful school' and 'an oasis of care.' We have a large outside space which is a hidden gem, nestled in this bustling inner-city area, creating a well-used space for children to engage in a wealth of outdoor experiences including gardening and forest school activities.

 

We support children to be independent, resilient and confident in their play and learning. Our experienced practitioners create a caring and nurturing environment which enable children to settle meaningfully

and reach their full potential. 

Partnership with families

Our partnership with parents is a big part of our work.

You know so much about your child.

Your support and encouragement will make a big difference to their learning

To find out more, please browse this website and take a look at our welcome handbook:

Tapestry

Sharing your child’s learning 

How we share important examples of what your child is learning in nursery, and how you can share information about your child’s learning at home
  • We use a secure online platform called Tapestry

  • Please download the app for iOS or Android.

We use Tapestry for 4 reasons:

  • To share important examples of children’s learning and play with parents

  • To learn from parents about children’s key play, learning and life events at home

  • To encourage children to talk about their learning with parents and staff

  • To help parents with ideas for supporting their children’s learning at home
