About Pump Farm Day Nursery

Pump Farm Day Nursery and Forest School, was built from redundant farm buildings in 2008 and is a small family run business. Our aim is, and always has been, to provide unique and exciting learning opportunities and give children the best start we can.

We offer childcare and education for children 6 weeks to 5 years, and also offer a Forest School Holiday Club throughout the school holidays for children from 5 years old up to the age of 10. We are open 51 weeks per year from 7.30am – 6pm.

We are an outdoor nursery and Forest School, which means children spend more time outdoors than indoors. Your child will get dirty and wet as they explore the outdoors in all weathers where we offer quality care that is in a healthy and safe, but not without risk environment. Activities will stimulate and encourage your child’s physical, intellectual, and social growth. We always keep your child’s age, developmental stage and personality in mind when planning for their needs and will always follow your child’s lead.

We believe that children should learn, develop, and grow with confidence, which incorporates adventurous ‘Risky’ Play.

We follow the EYFS (which all childcare providers follow, including preschools on school premises and Reception classes) but we incorporate the Forest School Ethos. We have 2 FULLY QUALIFIED LEVEL 3 Forest School Leaders, ensuring the safe use of fire, tools and discovering the environment, alongside our fabulous QUALIFIED EARLY YEARS EDUCATORS.
