Welcome to Shevington Vale Primary take a virtual tour of our amazing school
Virtual Tour
Headstart Nursery

" Where young minds grow, independence is nurtured and inspired lives begin."

Headstart Pre-School Ltd is a privately owned pre-school set within Shevington Vale, our friendly primary school.

At Headstart Pre-School Ltd children have fun learning through play, socialising and completing activities with qualified, mature staff. The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) is followed. All children practice and consolidate skills in the six areas of learning both in our spacious indoor and extensive outdoor and woodland environments.

Headstart Pre-School Ltd is very much part of the school. Children are given opportunities to meet other members of staff and pupils, take part in activities in different areas of the school and join in special events such as concerts and fundraising activities. We hope this will enable them to become familiar within the school environment and ease the transition into the Reception Class.

(Please note - not all children go on to attend Shevington Vale Primary School) - applications are welcome from all children.
