Welcome to Monkchester Road
Hello and welcome to the Monkchester Road Nursery School and Family Centre website.
In September 2017 we formed the Newcastle Nursery Schools Federation. The Federation consists of three Nursery Schools – Monkchester Road Nursery School, Ashfield Nursery School and Newburn Manor Nursery School. We have two Co-Headteachers who work across the three Nurseries, Anne Humble and Kay Mills and Assistant Headteachers or a senior teacher at each school. Each Nursery School retains its individual and unique characterisitcs. There is one Governing Body across the Federation with two co-chairs.
Monkchester Road Nursery School and Family Centre is a very inviting and friendly school where every child matters and no one is forgotten.
Please have a look around our website. If you would like any further information, or would like to visit us as a prospective parent, please telephone on 0191 2654579.
