Welcome to our website
Adventureland has an enviable environment to meet all the principles of “The Early Years Foundation Stage 2012”. This OFSTED requirement promotes the “Every Child Matters”outcomes and covers the seven learning and development requirements.
1. Communication & language 2. Physical development 3. Personal, social and emotional 4. Literacy 5. Mathematics 6. Understanding the world and 7. Expressive arts & design.
Entry starts at baby level. We take children from 3 months and progress right through to Pre-School.
From 3 months up until 2 years, children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. In a naturally stimulating environment they learn through sensory experiences and ‘messy’ play. They can move around safely and freely under close supervision by nursery staff who provide every encouragement.
Children develop their crawling and walking skills and furniture is at low level allowing them to pull themselves up and stand independently as they grow. In a home from home atmosphere children find confidence. They are encouraged to discover things for themselves by exploring and participating in floor activities.
2’s and 3’s
In this section there are several open ‘airy’ spaces for children from 2 to 3 year olds. Here they learn and socialise together with a mixture of free play and activities.
They are encouraged to be healthy, happy, independent and confident. They are supported in making their own choices and decisions and can develop their own ideas with supportive staff and inviting resources. Opportunities include a home corner, a book corner and a dressing up area with materials and utensils you might find at home. They can build with blocks and crates and develop their technology skills with iPads and tablets.
Children develop at different speeds so, as part of our newly extended area, we have recently introduced this special pre-school section to provide a level of learning and stimulation for those children from 3 years onwards who are becoming ready for transition to Primary School.
Here they are encouraged to reach their Early Learning Goals whilst still following the Foundation Stage. They are encouraged to further develop their communication skills, counting, critical thinking, motor skills and discovery of the environment.
Don’t just take our word…
Please listen to what our parents have to say.

The nursery is open 7.30am to 6pm. A holiday club also runs during half terms from 8am to 5.30pm where children are taken on trips, use the climbing wall and a range of other activities.
This letter is to express our sincere thanks to Adventureland Nursery for the care it provided for our children F and F from 2015-2019. As the owner of the nursery, you have ensured our children have had access to fantastic facilities and especially fantastic staff. There have been many staff who have been key workers for them both during their time and all of them have demonstrated constantly that they cared for our children. However, the care, flexibility, understanding and love they particularly gave F when she had her operations and was subsequently wearing her body cast was more than we could have ever hoped for. It would probably been easy for you to say that you couldn’t cater for her needs, but you didn’t and it made a difficult situation for her slightly easier. We have repeatedly recommended Adventureland to others if asked and will continue to do so.
We would be very grateful if you shared this letter with the staff at the nursery so they know formally how much we have appreciated their care for both F and F – they are a great team and well led.
Parents of FN and FN”
We have ample parking at AdventureLand. We would ask you to respect the marked parking bays. Entry to the Nursery is by a dedicated entrance separate from the entry to the play centre via our garden area. This is via an intercom system. Parking spaces are directly in front of the entrance. Your child will be received and handed over by a senior member of staff.
