The Wharf Nursery School

  • A unique place – I would recommend The Wharf to anyone who wants their child to have the best start in their life.

  • Being a young parent I struggle with anxiety and I can’t recommend The Wharf more…the staff have been amazing with me and my daughter.

  • They don’t just put the kids first but they care for the parents as well.

  • The teachers are all approachable and always listen if you have any concerns.

  • Your nursery outshone the other nurseries by a long way!

  • The staff are all so kind and welcoming.

  • It meant the world to me to know I could leave my children with people I could trust and know they were receiving and outstanding early childhood education.

  • We couldn’t have wished for a more caring, fun and inspiring place for our children.


Welcome to The Wharf Nursery School. We are a well-established, maintained (state-funded) nursery school which has been at the heart of the community in Godalming since it was founded in 1947. 

Our nursery sessions are for 2 to 5-year-olds from 9am to 3pm/3.30pm, term-time only.

We offer all 3-4 year-olds their 15 hours of nursery school entitlement free of charge.  We do not charge top-up fees.  Subject to availability of spaces, we offer an additional free 15 hours to those families who are eligible according to government criteria. See 30 hours free childcare - GOV.UK ( for more information on who is eligible.

Our aim is to help our children become well-motivated, confident and positive individuals. We do this by providing high-quality care and education in a safe, happy and stimulating environment.
