Set in the grounds of King George V Playing Field, a stones throw from the park, woods, village and quayside, Munchkins Nursery boasts a wonderful semi rural location, with the added advantage of being under 400m from the train station.

Our natural, warm and inviting interior gives each child a homely and secure feel, where they are loved, protected and encouraged to grow.

Forest School

Adventure awaits at our eco-friendly Forest School. Our large rural garden is home to our yurt which serves as a base for our Forest School Pre School (age 3 to 5) and Holiday Club (age 4 to 11). The children enjoy full use of our stunning woodland which is on our doorstep with amazing child led activities promoting confidence, team work and imagination. Check our Forest School pages for more information.

"The staff are brilliant, the surroundings idyllic and facilities excellent. Every opportunity is taken to play outside, and my daughter has learnt so much through play. She has been encouraged and developed in to a very sociable, inquisitive and sharing child and has formed great relationships with staff and other children alike. It really feels like each child is allowed to be themselves while learning how to operate with others and I have no doubt that staff know and love my daughter as much as I do. 11 out of 10 stars!"
