Ready, Respectful, Responsible
Starting school is such a momentous occasion, and we understand what an immense decision it is for you as a family to choose a school. We want to do everything we can to show you all of the things that make us ‘us’ and the many amazing opportunities your child will have if they join our JOY-ous family!
This is, first and foremost, a place where every child is given the support they need to achieve beyond expectations in an environment where our staff go above and beyond to facilitate all learning. Staff and Governors acknowledge how important it is for you to make the right choice for your child starting school; therefore, whether you have just re-located to Whitstable and the surrounding area or live locally and are looking for a school place in the Early Years or other year groups, you are very welcome to view our extensive grounds, excellent facilities and stimulating learning environment.
Welcome to Oyster Bay Nursery! Our Nursery is located within Joy Lane Primary School, Whitstable. At Oyster Bay Nursery, we provide a calm, nurturing and stimulating environment, with our indoor and outdoor spaces offering excellent opportunities for high-quality learning experiences. We believe that every child deserves to grow and develop through their play in a place where they feel safe and secure. This, in turn, enhances their wellbeing and independence, further supporting their learning experiences

CAKE SALE FOR ENDANGERED ANIMALS Our lovely Year one pupil Bay, organised her very own cake sale to raise money for the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF). This charity helps to protect endangered animals. This is a topic she feels very strongly about after seeing a show by the @theanimalguyz highlighting how many amazing animals are in danger and need our help. With help from some of her friends, she raised a massive £155! Wow ! Thank you to everyone for your donations.
Today, a group of children from across Key Stage 2 joined the residents of Harrier Lodge care home for a morning of painting. We look forward to more joint events in the new academic year!
