Gill Blowers Nursery is a split site school, having one centre situated at Mossdale Court, Hockwell Ring (2-5 years), and another at Leabank, Marsh Farm (2-5 years).
Both nurseries are unique because they are underneath the tower blocks of flats.
The nursery provides high quality early years care and education for pupils from 2-5 years of age. Although having been established for some years, they became a nursery school in 1999.
Gill Blowers Nursery is named in memory of the woman who vigorously campaigned to open the two sites. Retaining the name is seen as a fitting tribute, and a celebration of the work she undertook.
Gill Blowers Nursery was recently featured on the BBC’s Look East (West) program.
