It is very important that as our prospective parent, you are able to make an informed decision before selecting the right setting for your child.

Setting Sail

We recognise that this is an important milestone for all our children as they move forward from a familiar place they are in and start setting sail on a new journey. 

The Anchor Nursery team will be at hand to nurture and support all the children to raise up and embrace new and brighter adventures as they look forward at what is to come as they develop their full potential and love of learning through play.

We are committed to working with all our families and children to build strong connections to maintain the stable and secure environment that supports the children to grow as secure and confident individuals.

A ceautiful & peaceful area

The Anchor Nursery and Preschool are located in a purpose designed barn set in a beautiful and peaceful area surrounded by mature woodland and overlooking well kept working farms.

Indoors, the Nursery is caring, engaging and spotlessly clean, whilst outside we are adventurous, spontaneous and muddy!

The children enjoy the earliest opportunity to explore, discover and collaborate with each other in line with the Goldenapples family ethos, and they begin to learn to take responsibility for themselves and others in the safest of hands.
