A Nursery Day

Home > A Nursery Day

Every Day is a New Adventure

The nursery opens its doors at 7.30 a.m. and we close at 6.15 p.m. Places can be booked for a full day or half day morning or afternoon session subject to availability. There is a minimum booking of 1 full day or 2 half days per booking.

There are no hidden fees and your booking will include all meals and drinks throughout the day.

Our nursery is a place for creativity and therefore there is no “Typical Day”.

Encouraging Exploration

Children are encouraged to explore and investigate their ideas each day, and their work tends to turn into long-term projects. Our role throughout the day is to support their teamwork so, when a child come into the nursery to tell us he had a new Rabbit and had named him Peter we saw it as an opportunity to engage the children's creativity and, over a number of weeks we made houses and burrows for Peter Rabbit, searched for wild rabbits in our Forest School, made Bunny shaped bread rolls, planted and grew carrots, and on and on it went…
