St Teresa’s Nursery School is a Catholic Maintained Coeducational Nursery School.

We welcome children and staff from other faith denominations. During the school year 2017-18, the intake of the school will be 52. All pupils will be in their pre-primary year. Opened in 1994, St. Teresa’s Nursery School, affectionally known as ‘The Butterfly School’, is a purpose built nursery, traditionally catering for the needs of pre-school children in the parish of St. Teresa’s. Our aim is to provide high quality nursery education in a just and caring environment.

Parents and other adults are a child’s first teachers. When a child comes to school, they brings with them an array of different experiences. It is on these experiences, which we build. This can best be done by parents, adults and teachers working together in partnership both at home and school. St. Teresa's Nursery is part of West Belfast Area Learning Community and we are fostering links with both our feeder childcare settings and local primary schools.  St. Teresa's Nursery is also partnered with two schools.   Through the Shared Education project, we work with parents, staff and children in Shaftesbury Nursery in the Shankhill, sharing educational experiences and building relationships.  Further afield we have been partnered with a school in Denmark Bornehuset Labyrinten’ as part of an eTwinning project focused on ICT in Early Years.  All of these partnerships allow the children to experience a depth and quality to their learning experiences.

In St. Teresa's we have a strong focus on meeting the individual needs of the child.  We observe children's patterns of behaviour (schema's) and plan activities accordingly to maximise children's involvement in their play, enabling them to 'be the best that they can be'.  Staff are highly skilled in meeting children's language and communication needs. We have held 'Makaton Friendly' status since 2016, this was reissued in January 2018.
