Hello and welcome to the online home of Cottam Nursery School in Cottam, Preston. We hope that you will find all the information you require but please do not hesitate to contact us/visit us – our door is always open!

Stunning Rural setting

The nursery benefits from a rural setting having been the local village primary school before we opened as a nursery 25 years ago. We have 4 beautiful playrooms which provide access to all areas of continuous provision. We are surrounded by fields and wildlife and have sheep and horses in close proximity contributing to a rich and varied outdoor environment for the children to explore. Our playground area has been specifically designed to provide a wide range of activities.

The Cottam Difference

Cottam offers a warm, nurturing and friendly environment for 2 – 5 year olds where each child is personally valued and every need is catered for.

It is a wonderous place where children are safe, learn, thrive and enjoy every day. The team of staff are imaginative and fully invested in providing a diverse and caring experience for your child.

We believe every child is an individual who develops at their own rates and in different ways. Children need sensitive, knowledgeable adults who know when and how to engage their interests and the team of staff at Cottam are fully committed to ensuring every child continuously receives this level of care and attention.

At Cottam we take the time to get to know children as individuals and work closely with parents/carers and other professionals to promote inclusive practice. We have used various tools to assist communication e.g. photos, keywords in familiar languages and Makaton signing, we also purchase additional resources when necessary and have accessed translation services.
