Happiness, adventure, excitement, rich learning, creative thinking, caring staff, active outdoor play, making friends, building confidence, gaining independence... If these things are important to your child then Oxhill Nursery is the place to come!

We offer ‘30 hours childcare for working parents’ in partnership with other childcare in our area.

Welcome to our School. Our large, well-resourced nursery provides high quality early learning for over 200 children aged 2-4 years, between 7.30am and 5.30pm. The Victorian building is very spacious and we benefit from having a range of areas and spaces which are used for a variety of purposes.  

Our highly experienced and qualified staff stimulate children’s interest and natural curiosity through a range of well planned, interesting, imaginative activities for the children in a stimulating environment both indoors and out.

Our large outdoor area is accessed in all weathers, to enhance the children’s learning in all areas of their development. Here children are encouraged to access a wide range of good quality play equipment, including:

  • static climbing frame
  • large sunken sand pit
  • wildlife area
  • garden
  • wheeled toys

We have recently added a gardening area to grow vegetables and a mud kitchen.    

We are an inclusive school where children with Special Educational Needs are fully integrated in all aspects of Nursery life.

Our building is accessible to both adults and children with a range of disabilities and children with special educational needs are encouraged to access all activities provided.     

We offer a range of extended services to meet the needs of busy families. You are most welcome to visit the nursery at any time and see for yourself how we provide the best possible start in education for the children entrusted to our care.
