Welcome to Castlereagh Nursery School


Castlereagh Nursery School is set in mature grounds just off the Dual Carriage Way (Upper Knockbreda Road) between the Cregagh and Castlereagh Roads on the south – eastern outskirts of Belfast. 

It is a purpose built Nursery School with excellent facilities and run by the South Eastern Education and Library Board.  The school has places for 52 pre-school children on a full-time basis (9:00am to 1:30pm) and is staffed by a Teaching Principal, an Assistant Teacher and 2 trained Nursery Assistants.

The School boasts a warm, friendly caring atmosphere in which the children can feel happy and secure as they learn through their play.  There are 2 large playrooms, each with their own quiet rooms and toilet facilities.  The playrooms are bright and attractive and are equipped with purpose-built furniture.  Each room has an extensive range of equipment for the children to play with, learn from and develop their knowledge across the six areas of the Nursery Curriculum. 

Outdoors there is an undercover area with safety surface which allows for physical play regardless of the weather.  There is another safety surfaced area providing a range of climbing and balancing activities, a large paved area for bicycles, and an outdoor sand pit as well as a wooden house for imaginative play. 

There is also a sensory garden and planting area where the children are encouraged to develop an awareness of their environment.
