Our nursery has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted which means we excel in the education and care of children.
Our ethos is learning though outdoor play, using nature to enrich children’s imaginations and knowledge.
We work closely with our parents and encourage them to get involved in events throughout the year so they feel as much a part of the Farley family as their children.
Our experienced educators teach children using the Early Years Foundation Stage framework alongside our own Storal approach to curriculum.
Children become independent thinkers, making their own choices and managing risks in our outdoor environment. Sunny days are for exploring the long grass and discovering the wildlife on our doorstep. And in the autumn, you’ll find us observing all the different colours of this time of year.
Our healthy snacks and delicious fresh food are cooked every day by our onsite chef using local and seasonal produce when we can. Children enjoy experiencing new flavours and look forward to their favourite dishes while older children assist in the kitchen.
Every day at Farley we encourage children to be curious and imaginative in our exceptional learning environment. In doing so, they soon develop a real love of learning and a curious mind. We truly believe that outdoor learning is also key to children’s confidence, health and wellbeing, so we make sure that children at Farley experience the wonder and joy of our beautiful rural setting at every opportunity.
Our experienced team come with a wealth of early learning insight. We know that every child is different with their own story to tell, so we make sure that your child learns in a way and at a pace that’s right for them.
We’d love to meet you and your family, so come along and see for yourself why we’ve been Ofsted rated 'Outstanding'. We hope to see you soon.
The key workers are kind, warm and friendly and go over and above. It’s lovely to know that when you're not with your child they are in the best hands. We feel very lucky to be part of the Farley family.
It's the most magical start you could wish for. Snails, mud, sand, big builds, tree swings and a huge field to let their imagination run wild. The staff are amazing, nurturing and interested in offering the very best care. I could not be happier with our choice of childcare.
My children have been attending for over two years, and I cannot fault the nursery. Staff are friendly, helpful and supportive, and, most importantly, my children are very happy at Farley. Farley provides my children with the best possible starts in life.
The staff are all so fabulous and really care. Our daughter's speech and confidence have come on so much since being at Farley. We wouldn't want her to be anywhere else and we are very excited for our little boy to start next year.
Our outdoor setting offers lots of opportunities for sensory discovery and is incorporated into our play for this age group. From walking to talking, our outstanding learning environment helps babies confidently develop new skills.
After a busy morning of exploring and learning, it’s time to recharge. We know how important naps are, and make sure that when they need it, children can sleep.
As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover and learn. Children make friends, learn to play alongside each other and become more aware of the world around them. Our experienced educators encourage language development too, starting with simple sounds and building to sentences.
With growing confidence and ability, we prepare our preschool children for the learning journey ahead with a focus on phonics, numbers and social skills. We’ll also work with you to help your child with toilet training, giving them lots of support and encouragement along the way.
Children spend their final year at Farley preparing for primary school. By this time, they have made firm friendships and have experienced the outdoor learning environment in full throughout the year. With their voices heard in our very own council, they leave us as independent, curious and confident learners, ready for the next chapter of their own story.
Amidst all that learning, there’s plenty of time for play with games, creative activities and outdoor fun.
If children prefer some time away from the hustle and bustle, our quiet area is equipped with reading books and spaces to complete homework.
Whether it’s breakfast to start the day or a hearty meal after school, all of our nutritious food is freshly prepared daily.
