‘Our Family Time’

‘Our Family Time’ board is now up at the nursery to display pictures and observations of what your child has been doing at home or on days out. This is for all the parents / carers to contribute to and become involved with. Key workers will use these observations and pictures to plan activities and discussions following your child’s interests, as well as having discussions and sharing special memories.

Feel free to contribute news and photos via your child’s key worker on your child’s drop off or pick up times.

Coffee Morning

We would like to say a big thank you to all parents who attended our first ever coffee morning on the 29th of April. It was a great opportunity for parents to meet and have a chat with each other and the staff. Parents were able to stay and play with their child in their room and have informal discussions with the team. We hope that all who attended enjoyed themselves and we would appreciate any feedback on how you felt the morning went.

Our next coffee morning will be held on Tuesday 27th May at 9.15am till 10.15am. All parents are welcome to come along even if your child doesn’t normally attend this session, however you will be responsible for your child if you bring them with you.

Easter Parade

The children all took part in the Corby Old Village Primary School Easter parade. The children had a great time. They all walked lovely to the school and showed off their creative bonnets! Thank you to all parents and children who took part.



Sports Relief

A huge thank you to everyone who took part and helped raise money for Sports Relief. We raised a grand total of £162! The children had lots of fun taking part in the sports activities including tyre rolling, racing, bike races and more. If you have any more sponsor money, please bring it to us as soon as possible so we can send the donations off.



Visit from Police & Fire Service




On the 4th of March, the fire service came to visit the nursery. The children got the chance to look inside the fire engine and squirt the hose! Then on the 17th and 20th of March, the police came to visit. The children dressed up and explored the van, they even got locked up in the cells! The children listened well on all visits and learned a lot about what the police and fire service do.

Opening of Rectory Nursery School

The Mayor of Corby, Cllr Judy Caine, officially opens the Rectory Nursery School, Old Village of Corby

Published 16th November 2013

Corby’s old rectory, which later become the town’s Scout headquarters, has been given a facelift and re-opened as a nursery. The building in The Nook, in the Old Village, was previously known as Hightrees and was used by the Scouting Association from 1969 until 2005. Since then it has been unoccupied, but on Monday (November 11), after a major refurbishment, it opened for business as The Rectory Nursery School. Corby Council and Gabriel Care Homes, a Northamptonshire-based company, worked closely on the project to ensure that the historic building was restored to provide a much-needed pre-school for Corby. Permjit Garcha, a director of the nursery, said: “We are committed to making nursery and pre-school years a happy and rewarding experience for every family we serve.” Corby mayor, Cllr Judy Caine, officially opened the nursery which has open plan rooms, large outdoor play areas, CCTV monitoring and parking on site. It will cater for children from three months to five.
