A spacious and welcoming nursery in central Winchester

Our Nursery and Preschool in Winchester is set in a charming character building in the heart of Winchester and provides a happy and stimulating environment for 3 months to 5-year-olds.

Your little one will love our four inclusive, age-appropriate rooms where they can explore.

Outdoor Adventures

With our vegetable garden and allotment, there is so much to inspire. Your little ones will love our large tree house, sandpit and mud kitchen that are perfect for imaginative and messy play. Raised beds for gardening make it easy for little gardeners to enjoy participating in our Green Gardeners programme.

Outdoor play is always available with direct, free-flow access to the beautifully landscaped, all-weather garden area.

At Winchester Day Nursery and Preschool, your little one will be next door to the beautiful nature reserve of Winnal Moors which provides a wildlife haven, perfect for exploring wildflowers and rich meadows.

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.

All-inclusive Care and Commitment

Our parents and Ofsted recognise our commitment to high-quality childcare, with Ofsted rating us 'Good' in their latest inspection.

Our onsite chef prepares fresh, hot and cold meals each day. Necessities such as snacks, wipes, nappies, creams and formula are also provided, so there's less to pack on those busy mornings.

Commuter Convenience

  • Convenient onsite parking and buggy park allow for a stress-free drop-off and pickup process.
  • Easy access from Junction 9 of the M3.
  • Our nursery is less than a ten-minute walk from Winchester train station.
