Looking for a Nursery place for your 3-4 year old?  Our priority is your child’s happiness. We believe that children learn best when they are happy and engaged and our emphasis on open-ended, open air learning is what makes Cherry Hinton such a special place. We have an extensive garden and wooded area and actively encourage children to climb trees, build dens and take measured risks. Every day the children take part in challenging new experiences – from building fires to planting vegetables. Please look at the videos below to get a better idea of our Nursery. If this sounds like the right place for your child, please give us a call on 01223 568834 or email We look forward to meeting you!

 "So friendly, children love it! Thank you!"
