On The Farm
The farm has 10% of the land managed primarily for wildlife and the environment which makes it an especially good place for children to explore.
The 60 place nursery is for children aged between 3 months and 5 years and is open Monday - Friday for 51 weeks of the year. Our opening hours are 7.30am - 6.00pm.
The nursery is purpose-built to allow children to be at one with nature and the outdoors. The nursery has three rooms, each catering for different age groups. All of these rooms lead out to a large private, secure outdoor play area so children can choose where they want to play and therefore learn all year round. There is a large canopy that ensures that children can play outside in all weathers and we also provide wet weather clothing so the children can play happily in the rain or snow, as they wish.
We also have a huge field just beyond the children’s garden where the children tend their fruit and vegetables in the raised beds, care for the nursery chickens and enjoy endless forest school activities.
There are other animals on the farm, including the nursery pygmy goats and the children are involved in their care and help with their daily routine. This care for nature and animals is absolutely core to our ethos of a loving, nurturing environment where the children in our care can flourish.
The children regularly walk around the farm so they can enjoy, and learn about the seasonal changes of the farm, both crops and wildlife, and purely enjoy the space and fresh air that we have to offer. We have quad cross country buggies so even the smallest of our children can see this on this on the farm. Take a look at our On the farm page to see more about this.
Come Visit Us
We strongly believe in play based learning. We provide an environment, everyday, where children can develop through play.
We know each child as the individual that they are and through this we set up activities to progress their development. We do not pressurise the children, rather we provide a fun stimulating environment where a love for learning is developed.
