We understand that choosing the right nursery for your little one is an important decision. It is an exciting first step in their educational journey.  So what makes Cricklade Manor Nursery unique? 

Our Nursery Ethos: Cricklade Manor Nursery is a child led learning environment where we encourage children to explore and discover for themselves. We allow them the opportunity to blossom and build confidence. Our Woodland Explorer characters help add structure to our curriculum and add fun to our learning too! The day-to-day nursery routine helps children with the transition to big school, preparing them for their academic studies and giving them future life skills to build upon. 

Year Round and Wrap Around Care: We understand how busy life is for working parents, that’s why we offer year-round flexible and affordable wrap-around care from 7.30am-6pm. 

A Dedicated Nursery Team: Our Nursery staff are highly experienced. Preschool aged children also benefit from subject specialist teaching from staff at our prep school. Weekly PE sessions are led by PE staff, and Forest School sessions are led by a qualified Forest School leader. 

Enriching Environment: Set inside our picturesque walled garden, our Nursery provides a serene setting. With access to spacious outdoor play areas, a Forest School, a Sports Hall and Astroturf, your little one will have ample opportunities to explore, learn and grow. 

Convenient Location: Cricklade Manor Prep School & Nursery is located in the heart of the pretty Saxon town of Cricklade, within easy reach of Swindon and Cirencester. 

Affordable and Flexible: Our competitive fees and flexible booking options make Cricklade Manor Nursery a convenient and affordable option. Prices start from just £38.75 a day (8am-1pm).
