About Us

Best Practice

We have been offering "individual quality childcare in a safe, caring, loving and stimulating environment" since 1980 and were well-known in the West Bridgford and Bingham areas though these settings were sold a few years ago.

Our childcare facility at Manor Farm opened in 1995 and is registered with Ofsted and Rushcliffe Borough Council.

The nursery and Manor Farm & Woodlands work together to make the best use of the excellent facilities that surround it.


Those who work here are very important to us and many have been with us for quite a number of years. 

Our excellent childcare team are supported by a number of experienced supernumerary staff who are able to offer:

 Music, rhythm & drama  in our well-equipped Music Room and 'out and about' on the Farm, in the Garden and around the woodland campfire

Gardening & vegetable growing - not to mention cooking and eating our own produce!

 ‘Animal Magic’ chat sessions around the Farm, the Owl Garden & the Woodlands
