Welcome to our bright and nurturing nursery in Hampshire, where children aged 3 months to 5 years get the very best start. Your child’s education and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do. Our Ofsted rated ‘Good’ nursery follows a child-led approach, where we strive to follow your child’s unique interests to support their individual development.
Creating a Smooth and Easy Transition
To ensure your little one has a smooth transition, and to give you peace of mind, we work with you to follow your home routine. Our baby room is full of exciting sensory activities and home comforts, including a peaceful sleep room, so their move from home to nursery is fully supported.
Preschoolers enjoy their own room led by a qualified preschool teacher, who focuses on teaching them the key skills they need to feel ready and confident to start school.
A ‘Bright Beginning’ for Every Child
Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the very best start through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.
Building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, it combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child’s development and progress – whether that’s moving rooms or preparing them for school.
Children also enjoy Boogie Mites with its exciting opportunities to learn through music and song.
Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.
Outdoor Fun with Large Gardens and Forest School
Your child will love spending time in our large outdoor space, which is split into different areas to ensure all ages have the best resources for their group. The garden also features a sheltered spot, so they can have fun outside no matter the weather.
Little explorers will be able to make lots of exciting discoveries in our very own Forest School.
Homemade Meals and All-Inclusive Care
Your child will enjoy delicious and varied meals, all prepared freshly by our onsite chef.
To make those busy mornings a little easier, our Dandelions nursery is all-inclusive. All meals, snacks, wipes, nappies, nappy cream, sun cream, and formula are included.
