Abbot House Nursery 

Our 'Outstanding' Nursery



Abbot House is a Christian nursery owned and run by St Alphege, Seasalter.  We are very proud of our 'Outstanding' Nursery and the exceptional relationship between the manager Karen Billington and the staff, and the families.  

Abbot House Nursery Mission Statement

We provide high quality education for the whole child valuing each one as a unique individual.
We value the relationships that we enjoy with each other, staff, children, parents, carers and families.  We work closely as partners to draw out the full human potential of each child.  An environment of love, security and nurture is evident in our nursery.  Pastoral care, support and friendship is extended to children and families through our relationship with the local church and the wider community.   


Abbot House and Ofsted
In 2016 the quality and standards of the Early Years Provision at Abbot House was again rated by Ofsted as Outstanding in all four key areas:

  • Effectiveness of the leadership and management
  • Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
  • Personal development, behaviour and welfare
  • Outcomes for children

The report said ‘that staff provide a highly stimulating environment for children both inside and outside’.  Their leadership is described as ‘inspirational’ with ‘an awe-inspiring commitment and drive for continuous improvement’.   The Inspector wrote that ‘The quality of teaching is outstanding and all children make significant progress in their learning’.  ‘Children are very confident and eager to come to nursery to interact with staff who support their well-being extensively’.
