An Outstanding Nursery in Brentwood

Welcome to Phoenix Day Nursery and Preschool set in a green and tranquil environment. At our Ofsted Outstanding nursery in Brentwood, we provide the very best care and education for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Excellent Resources and Rooms

Based in a beautiful character building, our nursery provides a stimulating and nurturing environment that your child will love. Each of our rooms are fully furnished with age-appropriate resources and activities to support your child’s development.

We also have a brilliant soft play area, separate sleep room, sensory and tranquility room, ICT suite, outdoor classroom and art studio.

A Bright Beginning for Every Child

Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.

Building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings 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 wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that’s moving rooms or preparing them for school.

Getting Ready for Their Next Steps

To ensure your little learner is confident to start school, our older children take part in our Ready for School programme, which brings structure and focus to maths, reading, writing, and other essential skills they need to get ready for school.

Outside Space Surrounded by Trees

Our large free-flow garden provides endless learning opportunities and fun for your little one. The garden is landscaped with astroturf and plenty of sheltered areas, so it can be enjoyed come rain or shine. We also have a forest school area and allotment to learn how things grow. There are play trays and a sandpit, trikes and a racing track, and so much more, all surrounded by trees and nature.
