A new local nursery which opened in January this year has won ‘Top 20 Recommended Nursery Provider 2020‘ Award for South East England by daynurseries.co.uk
Sherborne House Nursery, based in the leafy enclave of Lakewood in Chandler’s Ford, Hampshire, has only offered placed for babies from 6 months old since January 2020, but has already been recognised as an outstanding childcare facility in the region.
Attached to the independent prep school for pre-reception to children aged 11 years, Sherborne House School made the decision to expand its Nursery provision to meet the needs of working parents. It offers full childcare needs for babies and toddlers aged 6 months plus from 7.30am – 6.00pm from Monday to Friday.
Mr Mark Beach, Headmaster of the school said:
We are absolutely delighted to have won the Top Twenty Nursey Award. This is testament to the hard work and commitment of our fantastic Nursery Team who have all worked so hard to ensure that the Nursery provision at Sherborne House is truly excellent.
The locally focused, family centred Nursery based in the grounds of the school’s idyllic four-acre site, bordered by woodland, adjacent to Hiltingbury Lakes is taken full advantage of by the pupils of the school on their regular ‘Welly Walks’.
Nursery Manager Lauren Kavanagh said:
We are really proud that it is now possible for the babies in our school community to now flourish in our Nursery environment and use this solid foundation of learning to seamlessly progress through the school providing a launch pad for secondary education, no matter what the destination school.
Ms Kavanagh added:
We have three rooms: 6 months – 2 years, 2 years – 3 years and 3 years – 4 years. Lessons include French, P.E., music and drama. We are very proud to offer children a high standard of care within a secure, inspiring learning environment where children are helped to develop, become active and learn independently.
Sherborne House School and Nursery form part of the wider Bellevue Education group, which has 22 schools across its educational award winning portfolio.
The School’s next Open Morning is on Tuesday 10th November, between 9am – 12pm, by appointment.
