What makes Silks Farm Nursery School so special?
At Silks Farm Nursery School everything we do is designed around our core values: to teach, engage and provide children with the experiences and skills they need to be happy and successful in life.
Highly qualified, experienced & friendly staff
Our wonderful nursery Manager, Sandra Coulson has recently been announced as the NMT Nursery Manager of the Year 2014.
The quality and commitment of our staff sets us apart from many other nurseries. We take the utmost care to recruit and retain only the best and most dedicated Early Years practitioners – we are well aware that a nursery is only as good as its staff team.
An unusually high proportion of our staff have formal qualifications in childcare and many have years of experience of working with children. All our staff are trained to extend each child's learning, giving them added confidence and a valuable head start for when they go to primary school.
All our staff have Paediatric First Aid qualifications, whereas Ofsted require only one trained member of staff, per nursery.
Each child is assigned to a 'key worker', a specific person who is responsible for ensuring the care and safety of your children and for reviewing and monitoring their development and wellbeing as they settle into life at Silks Farm Nursery School.
Fabulous Outdoor Space
Surrounded by private farm land, we are very lucky to have access to our very own forest school, and our fantastic outdoor space provides us with an excellent opportunity to teach the children about their environment and to respect the wildlife living near to their homes and nursery.
Unique Learning Opportunities
Our extensive, 'privately owned' grounds and purpose built facilities enable us to offer a wide range of unique learning opportunities and experiences for our children to explore; including our organic kitchen garden, our very own forest school, free-range chickens and much more.
All Inclusive Fees
We provide everything your child will need for a day at Silks Farm Nursery, including; nappies, wipes, formula milk, all activities etc, so all you need to bring is your little one and we will ensure the rest.

Delicious Organic Meals
We are extremely proud to be one of the very few children’s nurseries in the UK to use exclusively organic ingredients in all of our food and drink. Encouraging healthy eating and educating children about what they eat and where it comes from is vitally important for ensuring children develop a positive and healthy attitude towards food.
At Silks Farm Nursery School, our talented Nursery Chef prepares a wide range of nutritious meals for the children to try, using only the finest organic ingredients, and tasty fruit and vegetables picked from our very own organic kitchen garden.
All organic meals are included in your nursery fees, so you can be reassured that your child is getting the best start in life.
