Here at Barn Owls, all children are supported in developing their potential at their own pace. Our key person system enables us to ensure a planned curriculum tailored to the needs of each individual child through the use of developmentally appropriate play activities as outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum 2021.


Barn Owls Nursery is situated on the site of Shifnal Primary School. We can be found to the right of the main school building. We have a large Nursery School room, a smaller room for our 2 year olds and rising 3’s (Toddlers), a dining room and sensory room. Both classrooms are bright and cheerful and full of exciting opportunities where all resources are easily accessible and age appropriate.

Nursery school has direct access to an enclosed garden with tarmacked area for large wheeled toys, an artificial grassed area for slides, ball play, outdoor role play etc and an amazing forest school. Toddlers have their own fully equipped garden but they also have full use of the outdoor space.



Barn Owls Nursery welcomes any child from 2 years. We offer a number of sessions per week. Session times are 9-11:30am, 9-12:30pm, 12:30-3pm and 9am-3pm every day. Each session is offered at a price of £6 per hour for 3 and 4 year old and £7 per hour for 2 year olds.


Funded places are available to children the term after they are three years old. These places can be flexible and be taken in more than one setting. We also offer the Extended Nursery Education 30 hours funding for eligible parents.

We also offer 24U funded places to 2 year old children who meet the criteria.
