East Prescot Nursery School is a Liverpool Local Authority maintained Nursery School providing Early Years Education for up to 104 three and four year olds. Children attending East Prescot Nursery School move on to attend a number of local primary schools with whom we have developed strong links.

Our last Ofsted inspection in November 2019 judged our provision to be Outstanding. The Inspection report identified the following:
"This is a fabulous nursery school. Children are extremely happy. They develop high levels of independence and many skills that they need for their lives now and in the future. The school fulfils its values and its aim of giving children the 'Roots to grow and the wings to fly'." OFSTED 2019
Our aims for the children who attend East Prescot Road Nursery School is to ensure they become confident, self-motivated learners who develop the necessary skills and attitudes to achieve the best possible outcomes in their learning and development. We do this by making learning meaningful and fun, supporting children to develop independence and the ability to make choices.
"Children behave very well. They feel very safe. They tell adults if they feel something is wrong." OFSTED 2019
Underpinning our early years provision is the nurturing of children’s personal, social and emotional development. We believe that children learn best when they are happy and secure and have formed a trusting relationship with the adults who work with them.
"Reading is at the heart of the curriculum and is a high priority for the school. The aim behind the whole curriculum is to give children the language and vocabulary that they need for the future." OFSTED 2019
We actively promote the fundamental values of British life; the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect of those with different faiths or beliefs. For our nursery children this begins with; learning to play with others, take turns and share, learning right from wrong, understanding that they have a voice that is listened to and can make choices that are respected; the promotion of positive views within the nursery and wider community and the challenging of stereotypes through positive role models and discussion.
Children and their families are central to our vision and it is our aim that governors staff, parents/carers and other professionals work together relentlessly to deliver high quality provision that directly addresses the needs of each child.
The Senior Leadership Team and staff at the school promote opportunities for learning for children and families through their practice and behaviour which are underpinned by respectful, nurturing relationships; good communication ensuring consistency; High quality practice and provision and a culture of self-improvement based on evaluation, reflection and action.
