Ballard School Nursery and Kindergarten

Ballard School Nursery and Kindergarten logo

A co- educational, independent day school, Ballard educates pupils from Nursery to GCSE. We sit within 34-acres of woodland and playing fields on the Hampshire / Dorset border, between the New Forest and Solent.

Our Nursery and Pre-Prep area is independent from the rest of the school, which allows pupils the freedom to play, whilst feeling safe. However, they do like to explore the school grounds and facilities and our kindergarten pupils really love their Forest School sessions.

There is also a huge choice of indoor and outdoor play equipment. Traditional toys are supplemented by computers/iPads and modern educational toys, providing pupils the variety they crave and the opportunity to work independently or together.

Encouraging support from specialist PE and Dance teachers help our youngest pupils with their movement and motor skills. They also have access to specialist equipment, Dance Studio, Sports’ Hall and our other facilities.
