Our Northampton setting is based in a beautiful and unique grade 2 listed building and has some astonishing features which naturally inspire the creative mind! We have been on an incredible journey since first opening our doors in April 2015 and became very popular, very quickly. The true beauty of the building catches the eyes of many, and combined with our unique approach; people fall in love at first sight and children flourish and shine in their wonderful environment.
We have developed a passionate and caring team who love their job and strive for the best, continually looking to better themselves and the Nursery. They show incredible dedication and team work and have made a big impression. The Nursery Manager is an a Early Years Teacher and works closely with her team and our senior management team who work across both nurseries and have had a huge part in the development of our approach!
We also have a huge following for our Northampton Nursery from early years practitioners across the world and we often hear that we are largely recommended across Northampton as the best childcare provider, however, we strongly urge you to come and visit and make that decision for yourself!
The nursery building is across three floors, however, we only use the ground and first floor for the children’s spaces. All children have regular access to our large outdoor space with preschool children having ‘free flow’ between indoors and outdoors. We are continually developing our outdoor spaces around the children’s likes and fascinations and have a few different areas available, including a secure baby garden and our outdoor classroom which is based in the trees and offers a unique and special learning environment.
Children go for walks around the local community and parks often and we also enjoy visits to the local care home and school. Our closest school is Abington Vale and we enjoy watching some of their Christmas plays and work well with them and all other schools when it comes to transition time. We have received some really good feedback from reception teachers about the children we are sending off to school equipped with the tools for life long learning, and on visiting our setting these teachers often don’t want to leave!
