Head of Nursery’s Welcome
Nursery is often a child’s first significant experience of the world outside their home where they meet new adults, begin to make friends and are exposed to a multitude of new play experiences. Our team of highly experienced and qualified staff are experts in supporting pre-school children. Together with you, we ensure that your child’s first educational experience is calm, well planned and great fun! Read on to learn more.
We offer a caring and warm environment that supports young learners to flourish. We introduce learning and challenge through child-initiated and adult-led play to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage. Each child receives individual teaching time from their key worker and benefits from the expertise of subject specialists too. Click to learn more.
Huge investment in our Pampisford Road nursery site during summer 2017 has seen the facilities transformed. The pavilion was completely rebuilt whilst the bungalow has been fully refurbished and both are newly furnished. Investment in our sites and facilities is ongoing and is a very visible demonstration of our commitment to superb early years education in the borough.
We are passionate about providing healthy, nutritious and interesting meals for your children at our nurseries because we know how essential good nutrition is for the development of strong bones, teeth, muscles and a generally healthy body and focused mind. We encourage children to be independent with their choices but always keep a close eye and offer encouragement to try new things when the need arises. Pre-school children are bursting with energy and so their need for nutrients is high. Our carefully designed menus reflect this and we make great use of seasonal produce.

Parent & Toddler Group
Before your child is due to start at nursery, or to help you determine if Cumnor House is the right setting for your child, we invite you and your child to join us for one of our regular parent and toddler groups. The session includes outdoor play, weather permitting, and indoor activities such as puzzles, counting, threading and play dough, ending with music and song.
