About Ludwick Nursery

We are a Hertfordshire County Council Maintained Nursery School registered for children aged 2-5 years old.

Ludwick is just over 70 years old and has been on its current site since 1986. We have extensive purpose built buildings and rich provision, set in lovely grounds, with plentiful access to outside learning. We offer a range of services and work closely with other providers to ensure that our children gain the best support possible during their time with us at the school.

We share our site with Squirrels day nursery who we work in partnership with: Click this link to access the Squirrels Website: https://squirrelsnurseries.co.uk/nurseries/squirrels-nursery-welwyn-garden-city-wgc/

We have an onsite Family Centre led by OneYMCA.

We are very proud of our four consecutive ‘outstanding’ Ofsted inspections which recognise our commitment to providing high quality early education.  At Ludwick we strive to provide a happy, stimulating environment for children to learn in. We believe children learn best through play and first-hand experiences and we aim to provide the children with many rich, learning opportunities. We see Ludwick as a community and we work in close partnership with families, to ensure everyone feels welcomed and valued.

Ludwick Nursery School has a dedicated two year old group called Tree Tops, which offers free places for eligible 2 year olds. Please contact us or check www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/parents to find out if you are eligible.

This is an innovative group which makes a real difference by supporting both children and family within our Outstanding Nursery environment. Families are welcomed and encouraged to work in partnership with many opportunities for parents and staff to share children’s learning together and take part in special events.

There are two groups children can attend, a morning session or afternoon term time only.

Morning Sessions are 8:30am – 11:30am Monday to Friday
Afternoon Sessions are 12:30pm – 3:30pm Monday to Friday

Our Nursery rooms provide the universal offer of 15 hours per week free early education for ALL  3-4 year olds in term time.

We offer 3 hours per day Monday to Friday in either the morning or afternoon.

We also offer a limited number of places for 30 hours Free Early Education for eligible working parents. Add link here to check eligibility

For all children we have three intakes a year – September, January* and Easter* (*subject to places being available). Please apply directly to the school for a place.

We hope our website will give you positive introduction to our wonderful nursery school. We welcome visits to the school, please contact the school office if you would like to come and meet us and see our wonderful provision.
