for a new nursery provision at

Governors of Bloemfontein Primary School have given
the go-ahead for the school to open a 20 place nursery
provision within the primary school.
"We are so excited to begin w ork on creating a
nursery provision for Bloemfontein.
The nursery provision, which will be based on the school
premises, is set to open in early 2021. Overseen by a
qualified teacher specialising in Early Years, the setting will
be thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the local
children, offering one home base for children aged 3-4
Our school is the heart of our community, this
w elcome addition to what w e can offer families,
w ill only strengthen that.
Steph Henderson, Bloemfontein Primary School’s Chair
of Governors said:
"We are delighted to approve the introduction of a
new nursery provision to our school.
Our aim is to create an environment where our
children can embrace learning from an early age.
We are confident that w elcoming children into our
school and trust community at nursery age, w ill ensure
smoother transition into full time education.
Bloemfontein Primary School has so much to offer our
children, their families and our community, it seems only
natural that w e take this step.
We w ill now begin a lot of hard w ork behind the scenes
to ensure everything is in place for us to open our
doors in the New Year."

the school has to offer. With a large woodland area,
full Forest School provision, outdoor cooking space and
exciting play areas, children will fully engage in all outdoor
Having children start their education w ith us at an
earlier age offers so many more opportunities. We w ill
be in the best position possible to identify the needs
of each child, ensuring they are fully supported from
the moment they begin w ith us. Having younger
children attend the same setting as older siblings w ill
be hugely beneficial to our families and having children
join us from as young as three, staying w ith us until 11,
w ill enable them to forge long lasting friendships w ith
Bloemfontein Nursery School is scheduled to open in
early 2021 with initial operating times being 8am-4pm,

the provision grows. 15-hour placements will be available
for children aged 3-4 years on a morning or afternoon
basis, with 30-hour placements also being made available
to working parents.
