Dear Parent,

I strongly believed that the things I wanted for my children were not offered by any other nursery:

  • Outdoors being a fundamental part of their education.
  • Free flow play, enabling children to have the freedom to make their own choices, as opposed to a single room environment.
  • Traditional care, with loving, well trained and focused carers.
  • I also believe that every working parent should be offered excellent, flexible childcare, at affordable prices.

    The Nannery Team achieve this and I trust parents will feel as comforted with these ideals as I do.

    Kind regards,

    Maria Botterill - Nursery Founder

    Ofsted Report: Exemplary systems are in place to ensure each and every child receives enjoyable and challenging developmental experiences that are tailored to meet their individual needs. As a result, children make consistently good and often excellent progress in their development. They are motivated and enabled to become active learners through high quality teaching methods and an exceptionally stimulating learning environment. For example, the setting's innovative and inspirational use of the outdoor area provides exceptional opportunities for children to learn outdoors. Children have wonderful daily opportunities to develop their understanding and concern for nature and living things.


    The Nannery is a registered trademark and it denotes an ethos in childcare. The concept concentrates on life skills as opposed to classroom schooling.

    The children enjoy incredible opportunities inside and outside of the nursery with an amazing nature and exploratory area, with animals, as well as a marquee, playgrounds and regular outings, including the park across the road from the nursery. The indoor space is free flow and enjoys wonderful resources, including two ICT suites.

    The children's days are relaxed. The Nannery plans activities for the children to encourage their all round development. These learning opportunities are incorporated into their play. This, combined with the warmth of the nursery, allows the children to settle into an environment that makes them feel secure and comfortable. The Nannery offers a service that falls between that offered by a nanny and that of a nursery, hence its name.
