Ghanshyam Nursery School

‘Laying the foundations for life’

We strive to provide the highest quality childcare facilities and personnel for the social, personal, cultural and religious advancement of the child.

About Us

Ghanshyam Nursery School was established in 2001 after the temple purchased the Education Building (Computer House) with the aim to provide facilities to the community including educational development.

We provide care and education for young children between the ages of 18 months to 5 years. English is spoken as the first language, with Gujarati being spoken as a second language.

We are Ofsted Registered (Number EY408297) and accept children from 18 months – 5 years. Our hours of opening are 8:00am to 5:00pm and we provide a mixture of warm vegetarian meals cooked on the premises.

The nursery is open for approximately 51 weeks of the year. We close for the Hindu New Year (Ankoot) for one day (If it falls over the weekdays) and for the period between Christmas and New Year.

The fees are payable monthly in advance and apply even when children are sick, absent or on holidays.

Membership and Curriculum

We are a member of the Early Years Partnership and offer Council funding, where available, for 2, 3 & 4 year olds. We also accept Child Care Vouchers as part of the salary sacrifice scheme from parents.

We aim to lay the foundations for life, giving young children the very best start. The school equipment and furniture has been purchased with the educational needs of the children in mind; such that they can develop and explore their environment according to ability and age. We offer a warm secure environment that allows each child to develop at their own pace. The outside equipped play area is an added attraction.


The Board of Governors (BOG), manages the school under the guidance of the Temple Trustees and the Managing Committee and are elected by the Temple Committee annually. They are the proprietors. They are responsible for managing the finances, managing the staff and ensure that the school implements policies, which help it to provide a high-quality service.

The curriculum provided by the school encompasses the following as laid out by Early years foundation stage (EYFS) statutory framework:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the world
  • Expressive Arts and Design
