St James's Nursery Unit


Our Nursery Unit is an integrated nursery with places for 78 children (26 fulltime and 52 part-time). It is a filter nursery not only for St James’s Primary School but also for schools in the local area.  In St James’s Nursery Unit we aim to provide a happy, welcoming, stimulating and fun environment, where each child is valued and respected as an individual, encouraged to grow in confidence and self esteem and to develop to his/her full potential.


Our Nursery Unit is a spacious and attractive environment located in a separate building within the school grounds. Our Nursery Unit is teacher led and staffed by a dedicated and highly motivated nursery team.


During your child’s nursery year they will be provided with a range of structured and stimulating activities and experiences to develop his/her knowledge and skills through the six areas of the nursery curriculum. These six areas are as follows:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Language Development
  • Physical Development
  • Early Mathematical Development
  • The Arts
  • The World Around Us


Our Nursery is fully subscribed every year.  For further information regarding applications or to arrange a visit please contact the school office on 028 90866201.
