Compass Primary School


Our beautiful modern, purpose built Nursery opened in September 2019. Our provision offers exceptional facilities for specialised and individualised play based learning. Our team is run by an experienced Early Years Practitioner, Mrs McGovern with her caring, friendly team of skilled Nursery staff.

We promote child led learning through our provision which encourages independence, imagination, curiosity and creativity, fuelled by the children’s interests.

Our nursery allows a seamless transition to Peckover Primary School.

We have up to 52 places available for 3-4 year olds, we offer breakfast club and after school club. Please contact the office for details:

The nursery provision at Peckover will adopt the same admissions policy as set by the main school. See below for oversubscription criteria.
