Redland Nursery is situated in the grounds of Redland County Primary School in Chippenham, Wiltshire and is registered for 56 places for children aged 0-5 years. We are open 51 weeks of the year.
We have three large rooms, each of which lead out to their own enclosed garden offering free-flow play for the children.
We are passionate about outdoor play and we deliver exciting and stimulating activities for children including forest activities. We use the garden in all weathers come rain or shine. We also have access to the adjacent school field where there is a wonderful woodland area for the children to explore, develop, play and let their imagination run free.
Our caring staff team leads the practice in the well-equipped rooms in a warm, friendly, and enthusiastic manner. We believe that it is important for the children to have fun and learn at the same time. We work closely with our parents and believe in sharing information to help children develop.
We have on-line learning journals (Tapestry) and parents can upload their own special moments in their child’s life as well as seeing how their child settles and develops at nursery each day.
