Exceptional childcare in a safe, fun and stimulating setting

The Garden House Nursery originally opened in 1989 at Forget-me-not House. Moving to its current premises in 1994, the nursery has gradually grown and we are now registered for 72 children. We take great care to get to know our parents, carers and children individually to ensure that any requests or concerns are addressed quickly and everything runs smoothly and correctly.

Our rooms are based on Winnie the Pooh characters and we endeavour to provide a warm family atmosphere in a clean, bright and safe environment so children can feel secure and confident.

Why Choose Our Nursery?…

QUALIFIED, MOTIVATED & EXPERIENCED STAFF

All of the Garden House team are experienced, well qualified and committed individuals handpicked for their caring and compassionate nature. The nursery has it’s own experienced housekeeper who pays particular attention to food safety and to the importance of meeting children’s special dietary requirements.  All employed staff undergo a rigorous interview and induction process which includes DBS/police checks.

LEARN EXPLORE AND GROW

Each of our rooms at the Garden House nursery are developed in line with learning needs at every age. Children engage in outdoor play every day and enjoy the opportunity for fresh air and exercise in one of our five outdoor areas. We provide a range of toys, activities and areas to explore to ensure the children remain engaged, motivated and most of all have lots of fun through learning and play.
