Parent Coffee Morning

What is Helicopter Stories? How can this initiative support my child's language and literacy skills? Led by Rikta (Early Years Educator and Keyworker). 

Outdoor Project Day

Our ‘ Outdoor Project Day’ is scheduled for Saturday 20th May 2023 from 10am - 2pm.


We will be offering free hot drinks, pastries and cakes as a thank you to all our hard working volunteers.


Purley Nursery School is very lucky to share such a large, rich environment for our children to support their learning and development. We love to involve the children as much as we can however some tasks require more time and adult strength and stamina. It’s so wonderful when our school community can be a part of these developments.


On the day, we hope to welcome our families and Purley in Bloom to help us activities such as:

● Weeding

● Planting hanging baskets

● Creating a new sensory welcome garden on the main entrance path

● Litter picking

● Planting seeds and bulbs


We look forward to seeing you there!
