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. If this sounds like the right place for your child, please give us a call. We look forward to meeting you in September!


This is what our current parents say:

"Very kind teachers and staff helpful with all my child's needs."




"We love the fact that our child is able to learn life skills like fire making, problem solving, exercise and academic support."


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


"I think this nursery is simply fantastic and I'm glad our daughter is coming here."


"Excellent learning and child-centred teaching. Friendly staff and a very happy child."
