Our Nursery is where our players begin their playing journey with Ballinteer St Johns.

We would like to create a mascot that represents the spirit of our Nursery.  Our Nursery mascot should embody all of the good things about our Nursery – fun, learning new skills, inclusiveness, playing games, making new friends, being part of a team and a community.
