Our nursery offers five stimulating rooms across three buildings. A large converted barn is home to the Little Chicks for babies up to approximately 14 months, the Preschool from 3 years old and the Roosters Out of School Club for school aged children. The converted Piggery is home to the Big Piggies for children aged 2 - 3 years old. As well as a newly converted bungalow which is home to the Little Piggies aged approximately 14 month to 2 years.
Alongside stimulating playrooms, enclosed gardens, a vegetable patch and two paved play areas, we also have acres of fields and meadows to explore, a Forest School Woodland and safe limited access to the farm.
Napley Lodge Farm is a working dairy farm and the milk we produce is sent to Muller to be used in a wide range of their yogurt and other products. The nursery is securely fenced from the working dairy farm and our limited access is a safe environment. From our play areas, children will still be able to see our cows grazing or being brought in for milking and can view our calves in the paddock during spring and summer months. The children have plenty of opportunities to care for our calves, hens, sheep, goats and donkeys.
