Orchard Barns Kindergarten

Day nursery

The light and spacious building is surrounded by easy access outdoor play space which has  been carefully designed and built. The nursery caters for children from 3 month until  5 years and has the added bonus of a wooded area to the rear, in which our Forest School is conducted.   We have opened  a purpose built specially designed ‘Garden Room’ which caters for babies from 3 months.  Our unique Garden Room with large windows will have private access to their own well planned garden.

Where learning is fun
Both my sons have been to several other nurseries and have not settled so quickly or happily as they have at Orchard barns. I am impressed by the depth of understanding all the staff, but especially the key workers have of my boys and the genuine interest and enjoyment they get from working together.
