Why Choose Us?


A message from Helen Adams, Headteacher


The early education and childcare choices available for parents can be bewildering and it can be difficult to make a choice between Nursery settings for your child. My advice to parents is always to look for the following things:

  • How happy and engaged are the children?

  • Are adults happy and at children’s level and supporting them without taking over?

  • Is there a good range of activity your child can engage in?

  • How much experience and expertise do the adults have?


Here are some reasons why you might choose us:

  • We are one of only two maintained schools specialising in early years’ education in Cornwall.

  • We are non profit making as we are a school rather than a business – all our funding goes directly to support the children.

  • We are run by qualified teachers who have taught in primary schools.

  • Our environment is second to none – the children get to spend lots and lots of time outside and in our forest school.

  • Children are offered space and experiences to explore, manage risks, cooperate and learn

  • Our learning environments are spacious, well-resourced and well organised.

  • Our staff love working here – most of them have been here for years!

  • We support the whole family not just the child.

  • On average children who have attended Truro Nursery School do better than their peers at the end of Reception.


Come and see for yourself; you will get a feel for what we believe in and what we want for all our children.  We usually find that when children visit they don’t want to leave!  We look forward to welcoming you.
