As the Headteacher of Muriel Green Nursery School, I would like to welcome you to our website. Here you will find lots of information about our school and apply directly for places. Make sure you visit this site on a regular basis as new items are added regularly.
Muriel Green Nursery School and Day Care is a very special place for every individual child. We flexibly provide free sessional nursery education and fee paying day care to meet all of the needs of under-fives and their families. We are a not for profit organisation and the Nursery School is a maintained Hertfordshire Nursery.
The first five years of a child’s life are the vital foundations from which all future progress will build on and the dedication of the staff and you as parents are fundamental. Children learn best when they are healthy, happy, safe and secure, when their individual needs are met and when they have positive relationships with the adults who care for them.
It is imperative that every parent understand how important their child is to us here at Muriel Green, and that no concern is too small. Please come in and talk to us about any aspect of your child’s welfare, wellbeing or development; by working together the results will have a positive impact on your child’s development and learning.
We have a wonderful team of experienced staff committed to high quality education and care. Qualified teachers, practitioners and leaders who specialise in early years will work with you to settle your child, offering home visits and stay and play sessions.
We are delighted to be able to offer an excellent outdoor environment with natural, safe and stimulating resources for all the children and it is used whatever the weather. It has been described as ‘St. Albans best kept secret garden!’ everyone who sees it says ’WOW!’ The garden is complimented with an indoor environment that is sourced to stimulate curiosity and an eagerness to explore and learn.
Our Governing Body contributes to the life of the nursery and ensures that every effort is made to offer the best possible provision for your children. This is a local authority maintained nursery school and all income from day care fees goes to benefit the children.
If you would like to know more about Muriel Green please enjoy looking at our website and you are very welcome to visit us to find out more.
Muriel Green daycare provided my daughter with a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment in which she was able to develop happily. Her key workers were always attentive to her as an individual and I felt reassured that I was leaving her in capable hands. A particular selling pint for me was Muriel Green’s wonderful outdoor space, of which I know they take full advantage.
The children are happy and engaged in Sunshine Room and experience an impressive range of learning experiences every day. My daughter talks about her ‘teachers’ all the time and clearly feels cared for and listened to. She has blossomed as a result of her time in Sunshine and I feel that the dedication of the staff and the carefully planned activities have prepared her fantastically well for starting school. Most importantly, the experience has ignited a love of learning in her which can only stand her in good stead for her future education.
As a working parent, I have also been impressed by the communication from Sunshine Room. The learning letters are extremely useful and the new Tapestry system of observations gives a lovely insight into what the children have been doing each day.
Muriel Green has been a fantastic place for my daughter, the staff are caring and nurturing and the outdoor space is amazing and really well planned for. I have seen great progression in my daughter both academically and emotionally and most importantly she loves going to nursery everyday!
