We are open 51 weeks per year from 7.30am until 5.30pm excluding weekends, bank holidays and the week between Christmas and new year. The nursery is based “behind the wire” at RAF Benson and we offer flexible childcare to civilian and military families including 2,3 and 4 year old universal and extended funding .The nursery is bright and spacious and each room has opportunities for the all children to play, relax, explore and learn with a focus on natural material and loose parts and free flow access to the garden. We have a team of experienced practitioners who are committed to providing the best possible care, experience and learning opportunities for all children. Continuous professional development is fostered and we have a newly trained Physical and nutritional needs co-ordinator (PANco) and a Forest school leader.
