Steeple Nursery School, Steeple Road, Antrim


Steeple Nursery School is on a green site campus close to the centre of Antrim. The school opened in 1975 with an enrolment of 50 full-time places, throughout the years the school has had to change to part-time places to meet the demands of the community. Over the years our school has been extended and accommodates 156 children for part-time places.

3 Morning Classes x 26 children (9.00am - 11.30 am)

3 Afternoon Classes x 26 children (12.30 - 3.00pm)

At Steeple Nursery School the emphasis is on learning through play in an environment planned to encourage discovery, independence and social interaction. Children are encouraged to help themselves, take initiative and become increasingly independent in order to develop self-esteem and social competence. It is important that children develop a sense of trust and are comfortable in their environment. A parent or consistent caregiver is asked to stay with the child until teaching staff indicate that a separation is appropriate and can be comfortably accomplished.
