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, many of which have been with us since our early days. This passion and dedication has led to our popularity as well as the large following we developed from the early years sector in this country and beyond.
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 separate baby garden and our art barn equipped for lots of creative exploration! We also have some trees surrounded by wonderful treehouses and bridges and we provide forest school type learning opportunities with our Forest School Leader.
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 sometimes 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!
