Clayesmore Nursery, Blandford Forum, Dorset

The Clayesmore Nursery is a wonderland for children.

Nestling in its own courtyard, the lovely spacious classrooms are alive with colour and art and welcome them.

Inspired teaching, with exciting projects for children to get their teeth into, coupled with creative and varied ways of taking those first learning steps, mean they have lots of fun while absorbing knowledge.

Outside of the classroom is a garden where children dig the earth and plant seeds and a weekly Forest School activity provides lots of opportunity to learn about outdoor living and explore the grounds.

Opening hours extend to before and after school care included within published rates to help busy parents and keep children entertained.
