About our Nursery

The Grove Nursery opened in September 2022 after the closure of the Rainbow Playgroup, which had leased space at The Grove for around 10 years.  The Governors of The Grove Primary used their powers under Section 27 to set up  PVI now known at The Grove Nursery School as it was clear that there was still a demand for pre school provision in our local area.
