An enriching and welcoming environment

You and your little one will love the warmth of our nursery in North Baddesley, and it's farmside location. Children particularly enjoy our reading nooks and role play areas, as well as our ICT equipment, mini-allotment, mud kitchen and children's kitchen.

A Caring Nursery with a Countryside Backdrop

Rated as 'Good' by Ofsted, our experienced staff give children aged 3 months to 5 years the best support for their development in our the light and airy nursery.

At each stage, your child will be surrounded by age appropriate toys and resources perfect for their enjoyment and development. Your intrepid explorer, astronaut or ballerina can also dive into our role play areas and reading nooks and even experiment with our ICT equipment.

There are rooms dedicated to each of our age groups as well as a specially designed sleep room where little ones can peacefully nap. They also love our dining room, where fresh meals are prepared by our onsite chef and our children's kitchen where your little foodie will be introduced to food preparation and cooking.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life 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.

Exceptional Outdoors

Our location on the edge of farmland gives the children at our nursery a beautiful countryside backdrop - complete with horses and deer. Your child will love exploring the large landscaped garden and outdoor play area at their own pace, discovering the mucky joys of our mud kitchen, mini allotment, construction area, and more.

Family Environment

Socialising and community are essential for your child's development. To encourage this, we have an open family environment, holding regular opportunities for siblings and other children across the age groups to mingle with each other.

All-Inclusive Care

All meals and snacks, as well as nappies, wipes, sun cream, and formula, are included.
