A beautiful setting to help your child flourish

At Potten End Day Nursery and Preschool, your little one will spend happy days making new discoveries and learning key skills. Our Ofsted Good rated nursery in Hemel Hempstead is set in the beautiful countryside, where our team of dedicated staff provides the best care for children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Resources and Rooms for All Ages

With spacious rooms for every age group, your child will enjoy resources and activities designed to encourage development and independence, preparing them for their next steps.

Each room has different areas for creative play, messy play and imagination time, with cosy nooks for reading, and so much more.

Sleep routines from home are supported in our calming sleep room, so you can be assured that your little one gets the rest they need.

Our Active Athletes room is used for sports and fun games, giving your child plenty of opportunities to run around and have fun with friends.

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 wellbeing, development, and progress- whether that's moving rooms or preparing them for school.

The Curriculum is complemented by our Ready for School Programme, which supports the development of key academic and life skills so children can continue their learning journey with confidence.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.

You can stay updated with your child's day through our Bright Horizons Family app.

Set in the Countryside

We're set in the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, and we always make the most of our rural surroundings to enhance your child's time with us.

Your little one will love joining in with nursery picnics, discovering creepy crawlies during our woodland walks, planting fruit and vegetables, and even watching chicks hatching.
