Warrington Road Nursery  mission.jpg

At Warrington Road Nursery School we serve the community by providing a happy, secure and caring environment where all are valued and respected. We believe in the uniqueness of the individual and recognise the diversity and range of contributions that each can make.
We aim to provide for the moral, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and cognitive development of the whole child; this includes a growth in knowledge and understanding of self and the world in which we live. We seek to foster self-esteem, independence and a sense of responsibility to others and the world around.
In all that we do we endeavour to provide high quality care and education within a challenging, creative, stimulating, encouraging and mutually supportive environment where children are offered extended opportunities for learning, and enabled to develop the skills they require for living.

We are one of three maintained Nursery Schools in Widnes. When the children leave this Nursery School they are admitted to various infant/primary schools.

Our Nursery School staff are all fully qualified.

Warrington Road Nursery special.jpg 

We regard every child as an individual with his/her own strengths and weaknesses. All children are equally valued and have access to all areas of the curriculum. All children have abilities which can be promoted. We provide a wide variety of resources to help us to extend their abilities at all levels.


If the nursery school believes that a child would benefit from special help this is discussed with the parents, so that appropriate action can be started. The school follows the Code of Practice on the identification and assessment of special educational needs.

The school aims to provide equality of opportunity for all children, whatever their ability, gender, ethnic group, religion or background.


We recognise the cultural diversity of our society. We introduce children to different cultures through stories, songs, pictures, dressing-up clothes and equipment. The children are taught some French and Spanish words and phrases. We aim to enable all children to respect and value other cultures, traditions and ways of life.
