Welcome to the ACE Centre Nursery School.

Our school is a place where we strive to offer every family an enjoyable, rich and inspirational start to their child’s individual journey.

We are privileged to work with young children at a unique and sensitive period of life. Our school offers a vibrant, warm, supportive community, a beautiful learning environment and a deep understanding and expertise developed over many years to provide the best possible experiences to each individual child in our care.

I am proud to lead an experienced team of talented professionals who share a fascination about how young children learn best. We understand that every child is unique and we value and respect each child’s individuality. Our team strives to ensure that every child experiences success in their play, exploration and relationships so that they develop a resilient well-being, self-esteem and a love of learning.

Our children do well, as recognised by Ofsted who have judged our school to be outstanding in every area of our provision in our last five school inspections, since 2006 and – most importantly – as feedback from our parents and carers confirms.

We are very proud to be one of the six maintained nursery schools in Oxfordshire and the County’s only Early Years Teaching School. We are led by a governing body, a Headteacher who is a National Leader of Education and teachers, all specialists in early years. We also enjoy and highly value the support of the “Friends of the ACE Centre”, run by parent volunteers.

Do feel free to drop in and visit us or email our school office or call 01608 644440 to make an appointment for a guided tour. We look forward to meeting you and your child and hope that you choose to join our very special Nursery School.
