Our Poppleton Nursery is our flagship site and is situated in approximately 9 acres of land.
Our building is a custom designed barn conversion, meaning its designed specifically to the children’s needs, including direct access to the outdoors from every room, which supports our whole ethos – to not be afraid to let children learn by getting muddy, exploring, going on adventures and getting out there and having a go!
At our Poppleton site our children enjoy a wide range of activities both indoor and out, planned by a qualified and experienced staff team who genuinely love and care for all the children. They also enjoy nutritionally balanced food which is freshly prepared on site by the team, who minimise the use of sugar and other additives, never add salt, serves a minimum of four portions of fruit and veg each day, and uses local suppliers whenever possible.

The Discoverers Room is where all our youngest babies have lots of fun and cuddles. In the Discoverers Room we do our best to make sure our families feel as settled and reassured as possible. At this very early age, babies are taking everything in – watching and observing everything around them, listening to all the interesting new sounds, and learning by feeling and touching everything in sensory exploration. We work to encourage a baby’s development in a space which is homely, nurturing and stimulating.
And they’re off! No longer babies, children in this room are keen to get going and start going on their own little Adventures! Toddlers at this age are starting to find their feet and independence is really starting to shine through. Each day the carefully planned activities are engaging and exciting, bringing new challenges and experiences for the children. To support the child in their quest to a newfound freedom, adults provide a fantastic environment where children are safe to independently explore, experiment and learn through play.
With growing confidence, and with their own unique personality really coming through, children at this age are starting to really develop social skills and make lasting friendships. In the Investigators Room we support these skills by focusing on group activities, indoors and outdoors, offering lots of physical and social interaction. With a room full of curious resources and treasures and a team with a wealth of knowledge, these little Innovators can spend time developing key skills such as communication and independence whilst fostering that beautiful sense of awe and wonder that our little people already have in abundance.
The Pre-school Room is always buzzing with energy as the children begin their first steps to mainstream education. This is where children are getting ready to go to Reception at big school. There are opportunities to learn at every turn, including early reading and maths skills, mark-making, imaginative play and ICT, which are reinforced through what we call ‘purposeful play’. Activities and play experiences are planned to ensure each child is challenged and given chance to learn and develop on an individual basis, whilst having lots of fun of course!
