We have ample parking that provides a safe area for dropping off and collecting your children. We have a very long standing staff team which we are very proud of.


The Nursery is purpose built with six warm nurturing rooms for Under 2’s, including a calm sensory room, rooms to explore paint, sand, water and be creative!! We have two large rooms each for 2-3’s and 3-5’s with separate garden areas to enjoy different activities. We provide quality childcare for children aged between six weeks and five years and provide initiatives such as Busy Babies, Shake and Write and Wake and Shake. Busy Babies is designed exclusively to enhance and develop babies’ sense, using everyday objects in high contrasting tones to encourage babies to reach and explore. Wake and Shake is a daily activity that is not only fun, but enhances child development too!

Elaine Frost

Hi, my name is Elaine Frost and I live in Oldland Common. My first child started nursery in July 2013 and my second child started in April 2016. I enjoy family days out, family holidays, nights out with friends (old and new) and shopping (without the kids!!). As a working mum, I completely rely on nursery. I've always felt reassured that my children are well looked after, and that certainly makes it easier to leave them. The support and encouragement that the nursery staff have provided, has hel

"As a working mum, I completely rely on nursery. I've always felt reassured that my children are well looked after, and that certainly makes it easier to leave them. The support and encouragement that the nursery staff have provided, has helped our son to grow into a sociable, confident and capable young boy. We're sure that our daughter will do the same."

Michelle Maggs

I live in Oldland Common with my husband and 2 sons. Callum joined the Nursery at 11 months and is now enjoying the 3-5's room. Henry is due to start in the baby room next year.

"Choosing the right Nursery was an important decision for me, however Barrs Court made the decision easy as it far excelled compared to other places visited. It ticked every box on the 1st visit and has done ever since! As a parent I have been able to put my soul trust in the staff who are all kind,caring & professional and approachable. It has been a joy to see how Callum has thrived in the safe environment which is both nurturing and stimulating."

Rebecca Butucea

Rebecca's daughter Bella attends Nursery two and a half days a week and is based in the Toddler Room

"I am so pleased that Bella was able to attend Busy Bees. It's nerve wracking when the time comes that you have to go back to work and you need to start thinking about childcare and whether you are doing the right thing putting your little one in Nursery. The Busy Bees Team all made me feel so relaxed and welcome right from my 1st meeting. Everyone at Nursery is so friendly and really make an effort to know all the mums and little ones personally. Bella loves her time at Nursery,"

Rebecca Pickford

I have two Children Jocelyn who attends Nursery and Gabriel who is a newborn

"I have two children Jocelyn and Gabriel"

Sara Quaglieni

Sara has two children that have attended the Nursery, Lily has left us to go to School and George is in the 3-5's room

"I have always felt that I could work with the Nursery to get the best for my children. The staff genuinely care for my children and so they feel safe and really happy there. I have always been impressed with all the work the team put into thinking of new activities to do with the children and at times like Christmas they pull out all the stops to make the children's time special."
