We will be closing until further notice. Local arrangements have been made for essential workers and vulnerable children. 

We want to thank all our lovely families and staff for all their support and patience after a difficult week awaiting arrangements. With the government measures we will be able to support our team during this difficult time.

We would like to direct all our families to our Facebook page where nursery manager Catherine will be posting ideas and links to other fun and educational activities as often as she can.

We wish you all well, keep safe and we will let you know as soon as we know when we can re-open.

If you are interested in a place for the future do email us as usual and, those of us working remotely, will respond as soon as we able to.

With love and good wishes. Keep safe. For the latest information on coronavirus (COVID-19) visit www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

What The Parents Say

“Exceptional activities”

I was bowled over by how quickly my son settled here and how much he loves coming to nursery. The quality and range of activities they do is exceptional. My son’s really happy.


“Huge garden”

Lovely nursery. The garden is huge and the space is so much larger than what you’ll find in central Oxford. The staff are wonderful, too. My daughter formed a lovely bond with her key person.

Staff have a real knack for encouraging the children to be respectful, empathic and independently minded. They genuinely care about nursery and the children.
