Set on a Working farm, we provide a happy, safe and nurturing environment where each individual child is allowed to thrive and learn. Our unique setting encourages child-led learning through play and creates opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands on learning in the natural environment. We are hugely passionate about providing a special place where each child can be the best version of themselves.

An example of indoor learning


In 2016 our farm buildings were converted into the wonderful Nursery that we have now. Our indoor space has a calm and neutral feel with plenty of well thought out resources to enhance each child’s learning and development. We continually review, reflect, and rotate our resources to support and extend our children’s learning. Our wall displays show each child’s work to their best ability and add that splash of colour to each room.

An example of outdoor learning


Our Forest School was established throughout 2019 and is continually evolving on an organic basis. Our fully qualified Forest School leader will build on your child’s inquisitive attitude to build a culture of joy and appreciation of the natural world around them. Children can learn to enjoy a safe woodland campfire, the safe use of woodland tools, and how to identify trees, fauna and the wildlife creatures that live in our habitat.

Forest School

Based on our working Cheshire Dairy Farm which includes our new Forest School, we have lots of green space for your child to make the most of our outdoor environment.

Della’s Kitchen

Our kitchen works on a three week menu rota. The menus change seasonally but always includes fresh fruit and vegetables. Della our Nursery cook works hard to give our children healthy and nutritious meals to include locally grown and sourced produce.

We can accommodate any child with allergies, food intolerances, religious beliefs or other health issues. We have existing children who require alternatives to our menu and we can make provision accordingly to fit in with the parents wishes.
