About Our Nursery

Pump Farm Day Nursery derived from redundant farm buildings and opened in 2008.  It is an idyllic setting for children to experience the great outdoors, we also have exclusive use of a local woodland...............

Forest School

Forest School is a unique educational experience and process that offers children the opportunity to succeed and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment.

From the moment we visited my son was very happy to come to nursery. When I collect him he does not want to leave and invites me in to play with him. What more could a mummy want?

Mrs Douglas-Koch

After moving from Yorkshire, we were anxious that our daughter settled quickly at Pump Farm and enjoyed it as much as her last nursery, and we have been thrilled with how quickly she has settled in the warm, family atmosphere and the time and care the staff give to her.

Mr & Mrs Griffin

Harry thoroughly enjoys his time at nursery, so much so that we often have to chase round after him to get him to come home!! Pump Farm Day Nursery is a wonderful environment for children to learn, play and be happy. The staff are friendly and approachable and fantastic with the children. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of nursery.

Mrs Cluer

Pump Farm day Nursery is a fantastic nursery! The staff are great with the children and our son loves attending. We feel that our son has developed very quickly once he started here and he is learning at a fantastic rate all thanks to the staff at Pump Farm! We would definitely recommend this nursery to anyone! 5* from us.

Mr & Mrs Heald

Our son has been in nursery since he was 5 months old. We couldn’t wish for a better nursery. The staff are fantastic, warm and very welcoming and our son loves them all. Pump Farm Day Nursery is a true home from home and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

My son always gets very excited when we say it’s time to go to nursery. When he comes home he seems full of new tricks!! Pump Farm Day Nursery seems great for my son’s enjoyment and development.
