Welcome to School House Day Nursery & Pre-school

We are a warm, welcoming nursery where every child is at the heart of everything that we do. 

 We first opened our doors in 1992 and since then our aim has been to support the local community and provide high quality childcare that will help your child thrive emotionally, physically, and academically. 

This will help enable your child to become a happy and confident little learner, well prepared for their first steps into the big world and starting school.

Our team are dedicated to provide a variety of fun-filled learning experiences for your child. We follow the new Early Years Foundation Stage framework and implementing this into our practices and procedures. 

Our team are highly experienced and are continually developing their practice and skills within the early years sector through training and continuous research. 

We provide a stimulating indoor and outdoor environment, following the principles of the EYFS and making the children the center of all learning. We pride ourselves on our play areas being stimulating and educational – reflecting the children’s interest and our learning topics. 

We understand that listening to the child’s voice is paramount, and it is by listening to their wants and needs that we tailor our learning experiences to meet every individual child within our setting.

Our magical location enables us to venture out and explore the nature around us in our Forest school learning experience.

We carry out Forest School close to our beautiful nursery grounds, or if we want to venture further out to local forest parks we are able to  as we have our own nursery minibus.

To compliment all the services we offer your children, we also provide extracurricular activities including swimming lessons, dance lessons, football coaching, cookery class, gymnastics and planned educational trips!

We pride ourselves on being ‘flexible’ with our sessions allowing child care to fit around your working schedule.

We know that starting nursery is a big step in a child’s life and can be a worrying but exciting time for parents leaving their children for the first time.  We strive to make the transition from home to nursery an exciting and fun experience for both you and your child.

If you would like to come and have a look around our welcoming nursery for a visit, our team of highly trained practitioners would love to be of assistance. Feel free to get in contact to ask any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
