With a focus on outdoor learning our nursery is perfectly located; surrounded by woodland areas, forests and rivers. Find us here.

Playrooms within our nursery are generously proportioned, carefully planned and extensively resourced to create inspiring learning environments in which children can grow and learn with confidence. We pride ourselves on offering children a wide range of activities and all of our children have access to outdoor play areas offering the opportunity for regular outdoor learning experiences across all areas of the curriculum.
