Central is Derby's oldest, purpose built nursery, established in 1938. The stimulating inside areas and variety of beautiful outdoor gardens give children spaces to explore. We believe every child is capable of great success. What our children experience and discover at nursery develops their love of learning and the solid foundations that will be built upon throughout their lives. Therefore we believe it is essential that the experiences we provide are of the highest quality.


Our website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you require any further information or would like to arrange a visit.


Kind regards
