The nursery itself is based in a beautiful flint Victorian school house with a free-flow outdoor classroom, a big playground and a nature field across the road that we use every week.

The children grow vegetables in the garden, go to Forest School every week, take yoga classes, act in our Nativity Play and compete at sports day in the summer.
