We are a private, independent pre-school and nursery which provides a safe, stimulating and caring environment for children from 2 to 5 years. We pride ourselves in helping children to develop socially, physically and academically.

Based in St Saviour’s church hall, Sandpit Lane, St Albans, the setting has been running for many years and is owned and managed by Tina Alder and Claire Toms.

Our Philosophy

At St Saviour’s we support our children in becoming happy, inquisitive and successful learners through a balanced curriculum of child-led activities, free choice and adult-led group learning.

Pre-School or Nursery?

Children can start at St Saviour’s in the pre-school the term after their second birthday. We also have a dedicated Nursery for the 3- to 5-year-old children where they can explore some adult-led activities planned around their interests and needs before they join the younger children for free play. This integration of age groups creates some wonderful relationships and play opportunities.
