About our

Our New Ollerton Nursery is a warm and friendly setting with a home from home feel; we are open 7:30am-6:00pm, Monday – Friday with a variety of sessions available.

We are located in a little village with Mansfield Town on a bus route. We offer childcare for children 0-5 years with dedicated rooms for each age group, this gives the children appropriate learning experiences tailored to their age. We have a large enclosed garden area which all of the children can freely explore along with a range of activities. Within the village, we have close connections with the library and often carry out visits with the children, we also have a supermarket, forest & park close by that we visit regularly.

Our children are served seasonal, healthy cooked lunches that are cooked fresh on-site, every child is offered healthy snacks and we also cater to any dietary requirements and allergies.

Our Nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum supporting all areas of your child’s development from babies to school age.

We also offer flexibility depending upon the age and stage of each child.

We also offer a separate sleep room so our babies can have a quiet nap when needed.

This room is large and lively, full of enthusiasm and learning.

We use a curiosity approach to encourage the children and aim to minimise the use of plastic and focus on natural resources.
