Great Cornard Day Nursery and Preschool provides care and early education for children aged 3 months to 5 years.
We offer a warm, welcoming environment supporting the transition from home to nursery, and we provide excellent nutritionally-balanced menus using fresh ingredients prepared by our own chef. To help children's development we have a dedicated sensory room. We're also attached to a children's centre allowing us direct access to health visitors. We have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted in our previous three inspections.
