Welcome to our nursery...

Welcome to our nursery! We are OFSTED graded as ‘ Outstanding’ and set in 2 beautiful grade 2 listed buildings barns and located on a secluded rural site formerly known as Hatch Warren Farm. We are located next to the Portsmouth Arms Pub.

There are 2 buildings on site, Eggesford House is for  babies and toddlers under 2 years and McWilliam House is for children aged 2 – 5 years. 

Both buildings are beautiful and retain many of their original features. The nursery has just had a full refurbishment to complement the outside of the barns and the setting.  Our new concept is to provide a clutter free environment for everyone on site, thus promoting a calm environment focused on learning and development and enhanced personal social and emotional well being. The rooms are enhanced with objects to promote language according to the theme of the room.  Under 2’s is themed as ‘The Seaside’ , 2-3’s is ‘Spring’ and Preschool is ‘Transport’.

Fresh air and exercise is a daily part of the children’s routine. We tell parents ‘there is no such thing as bad weather – just bad clothing!'. ‘Garden Detectives’ support the children with understanding of the world and look for nature in our environment.

We have a thriving Parent Partnership Group with parents who support the nursery with events, advice and support to new parents as well as promoting the nursery through marketing and fundraising for our nominated charity each year.

Our staff team is very committed to their role and have excellent relationships with their key children and all families alike. They are also highly skilled, highly qualified and established, and have been employed with us from between 3-12 years. Have a look at our staff team!

Call us for more information and a tour of the nursery or book via our website! We look forward to seeing you soon!
