Support in the Primary School

Nursery nurses are trained, via the Certificate or Diploma in Nursery Nursing of the National Nursery Examination Board (NNEB) or an equivalent BTech or NVQ qualification, to work with children from birth to seven years of age. Increasingly, however, qualified nursery nurses are being employed in mainstream and special schools to support children of junior or even of secondary age. In such circumstances additional training is essential.
