Welcome to Nursery

Ballymacash Nursery Unit welcomes children and their family circles to our bright and friendly environment. The Nursery teacher is Mrs McConnell who is supported by classroom assistants, Mrs Wood and Mrs Keys, with Mrs Dorrian covering these assistants on a Monday and a Friday.


At Nursery we endeavour to create an atmosphere that enables children to become independent and open to all the fun and challenges which meet them during their Nursery year and in the years beyond. We offer support to children of all abilities and strive to meet their needs on a daily basis. When required we work with Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Psychology and many other services during the Nursery School year.


The unit consists of two part time classes of 26 children and is fortunate not only to have a large, bright, unique room but also a beautiful natural garden. As a Nursery team we place high importance on learning in the outdoor environment. Most days the children wear waterproof suits so they can freely explore everything the outdoors has to offer! Even on rainy days!

The staff work together as a team with the Playgroup, the Primary School, parents and family to create an atmosphere where everyone feels encouraged and supported.
