Bangor Central Nursery School
Welcome to our School! We are a busy, independent Nursery School in the heart of Bangor.
There is lots of information about our school on the website - if you have any further questions, or would like to arrange to speak to the Principal, please contact the school office. Unfortunately we can not faciliate visitors under DE COVID-19 guidance.
We have three classes offering both full-time and part time classes with spaces for 78 children in their preschool year.
Each Nursery Class has 26 spaces and is taught by a qualified and experienced teacher who has a specialism in working with the Early Years.
The Full Day Class runs from 9am - 1.30pm (Hedgehog Class)
The Morning Class runs from 8.50am - 11.20am (Squirrel Class)
The Afternoon Class from 12.15pm - 2.45pm (Badger Class)
We have a wide range of learning spaces, both inside and outside -
- two large, bright classrooms with quiet rooms,
- a multi-purpose Garden Room with safety surface flooring,
- an outdoor classroom,
- the side garden with sand house, boat, brick playhouse, mud kitchen
- playground with Learning Houses, Climbing Frame, Wood Workshop and Potting Shed
- the mature Long Garden with willow tunnels, mud kitchen, vegetable patch and birch circle.
Learning in Bangor Central Nursery
We use iPads to help support and record our learning. Photos and videos can be shared with children on displays in our quiet rooms using Apple TV and with parents through the Seesaw app. We also use the iPads to research topics of interest with the children online, developing curiosity and understanding.
Our learning is enhanced by visitors coming to the school, such as the Hullaballoo Theatre Company, The Ark Farm, Drumming and visitors with interesting jobs, as well as trips we make to Castle Park, the Library and our end of year trip.
Bangor Central Nursery is a Controlled Nursery School within the Education Authority - South Eastern Region (EA-SER), funded by the Department of Education (DE).
In May 2019 a parental ballot voted overwhelming to seek to transform the school to Integrated Nursery School status. The Board of Governors are working towards this transformation in the hope that it will be completed for September 2021.
