At The Old School House Nursery, we provide a safe, warm, homely environment where children have fun learning through exploration and discovery.  Our team of caring staff understand the nurturing young children need in order to flourish and grow.  We are also extremely proud to have been rated "Outstanding" by Ofsted in October 2014, with the report giving us the 'Outstanding' rating in all three judgement areas.


Our spacious premises within a converted school house, provide different rooms for play & learning including a cosy book room and lovely kitchen.  We also have a beautiful, secure grassy garden and an under cover outdoor play area which means the children can access the outdoors whatever the weather!

In September 2019 we will be merging with Helmingham Primary School to provide preschool education as part of The Consortium Academy Trust. We are very excited about this new partnership with the pirmary school and the trust. Please do contact us for more information.


Please do give us a call to arrange a visit or to book your child a free trial session - we would love to show you around!  To see our most recent newsletter to see what we're up to this term, please click here.

Children welcome from 3 to 5 years.
