Nursery and Preschool

A supportive and friendly environment.

We welcome children from the age of 3 years into our happy and homely nursery setting which is the first entry point into our Preparatory School. The Nursery and Preschool is housed within the Preparatory School building and has full access to all our school facilities, including our amazing grounds and Forest School.

We have a very simple vision – to help every child thrive. We love to inspire our students to explore their creativity through everything that they do. We nurture their talents and encourage their characters to develop throughout their time with us.

The learning process in our nursery is carefully embedded into every session and by the time our Preschool children move on into Reception class, they have a true love of learning.

‘‘I feel my daughter is really thriving and Quinton are supporting her development. I'm so proud of how she has progressed over the last 2 and half years.’’

–  Quinton House Preschool Parent


Our facilities truly engage and inspire.

Few nurseries in Northampton could compete with the exceptional facilities that are available to our students. Set in 31 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, Quinton House Nursery and Preschool is a very special place in which to learn and play.

Our stunning woodland space is used for Forest School and as an outdoor classroom, providing the perfect place in which to develop a true appreciation for the natural world.

Benefitting from well-equipped and comfortable rooms, plus a dedicated outdoor learning and play area, children can access the facilities they need to develop their academic, physical, social and creative skills.



All sessions include group phonics or numeracy, some time for free play and adult-led activities.

Each session incorporates a blend of communication and language development, social and emotional development and physical development. Sessions incorporate a wide range of activities and experiences, which change on a daily basis.

With a snack break in the morning session and tea in the afternoon session, children have time to relax and socialise together. Children who are with us for the full day also have a nutritious lunch that has been prepared by our talented onsite catering team.

With the option to join us either full time or part-time, you can choose from sessions that run from 8am to 1pm, 3:45pm or 6pm.
