Polam Nursery

Polam is a small, caring and happy independent school for children aged 12 months to nine years. Occupying two large Victorian houses on a leafy avenue in the heart of Bedford, it provides a unique home from home learning environment where every child is known by every member of staff.

The school has its own nursery which is open throughout the year and offers a homely, safe and caring environment. The nursery has been judged 'outstanding' for the last three inspections in a row, the most recent being in March 2019.

Parents can book half-day sessions, school days (8.30 am to 4 pm) or can add wrap-around care from 7.30am to 6 pm.

All children in the nursery benefit from weekly music lessons led by a specialist music teacher, plus PE lessons in our school sports hall. French lessons and swimming, in our own on-site heated swimming pool, are introduced from the age of 3.
