Ofsted Outstanding

Following our recent Ofsted inspection, we are thrilled to reveal that we remain an outstanding Nursery School!

Vision and Values

We are a positive, happy, caring, learning community that is committed to providing high quality learning opportunities for everyone.

Promoting Creativity

At Filton Avenue, we place a special emphasis on encouraging creativity and creative thinking. This encompasses all areas of learning and exploration and is very much at the heart of our practice.

Welcome to Filton Avenue Nursery School and Children’s Centre

This is an aspirational place built on love, courage and respect. Together we are the heart of the community. Please come and take a look and see what a great place this is

We recognize the power in working together throughout your child’s formative years and are happy to hear any suggestions, feedback and comments that look to build on this great Nursery School and Children’s Centre.
