Birdhurst Nursery


At Birdhurst Nursery, we believe it is important to offer high quality care by understanding that your children’s happiness and safety are paramount. We believe the first five years of a child’s life lay the foundations for their future. It is our promise to you as parents to give your child the greatest opportunity for them to fulfil their potential in a learning environment that is comfortable, safe and healthy.

We have separate, age-specific rooms for the different ages groups as listed below. Split over 2 floors, with the younger children on the top floor and the older on the ground floor. We also have separate rooms for dining and sleeping on the top floor.
