We believe that children are born with a natural desire to explore and learn. When we follow their lead, we can offer an environment that is stimulating and exciting. The result? Happy, relaxed children who learn at their own pace.
ABOUT WISE OWLS NURSERY AND OUT OF SCHOOL CLUB
Early starts and late finishes
We understand that your needs for early years care and education are as unique as your child.
We are therefore open from 0730-1800 – Monday to Friday for 48 weeks of the year. We offer a range of part time sessions and full days.
Home from Home Environment
We are more than just a nursery. We are a family business and key to our service is delivery of a home from home environment where children and families feel part of our family. Caring for a maximum of 38 children a day enables us to tailor our service to the needs of each child. Our environment is carefully planned and our curriculum structured to ensure the individual touch is of utmost importance.

ROOMS WITHIN OUR NURSERY
OWLETS (UNDER 24 MONTHS)
Owlets are baby owls who have not left the security of their nest yet. Our baby room provides all the security that your very own owlet needs. We know that the decision to leave your owlet without you is a tough one, however, when you come and see our home-from-home environment, you'll know that you've made a wise choice!
We have spaces for 6 babies in our room with 2 members of staff
BRANCHERS (24 TO 36 MONTH OLDS)
Branchers have the courage to leave their nests out onto the branch, but they still need close supervision as they are not yet full confident on their feet. Until they are 2 years old, there is a 1:3 adult to child ratio, which moves up to 1:5 once they are two. The rooms are close together so little ones will get to socialise with each other and if a brancher conks out, there is a quiet room for sleeping. There's easy access to our wonderful garden over the "trip trap" bridge!
FLEDGLINGS (3 TO 5 YEAR OLDS)
Fledglings are ready to take flight and the 3-5 year old room is no exception. We encourage free-flow from inside to outside and with our regular sessions in the woods, the children will create their own learning opportunities under the expert guidance of our practitioners.
