The Orchard Childrens Nursery

If we could bottle one thing it would be the sound of children laughing.  It happens a lot in our nursery and pre school, all the time in fact because having fun whilst nurturing well-balanced, healthy and happy children is at the heart of what we do. To us, having fun inspires the imagination, encourages development and builds confidence. From paint covered faces, whizzing down the outdoor slides, to role play and a simple game of peek-a-boo, we have more fun than you can shake a stick at.

With endless curiosity, we know our youngsters love to learn about their little worlds. How to draw, read, touch or even take their first steps or say their first words, their world is such an adventure. Our rooms are set out to cater for all ages, from a quiet reading area to stimulate the mind, creative play to inspire artists and plenty of opportunities for cooking and baking (you never know, we might find the next celebrity chef). We enjoy going for adventures in the woods, feeding the ducks, jumping in muddy puddles and searching for the Gruffalo who we are still yet to find.
