Welcome to The Orchard Nursery at Farlington

At our Nursery we provide strong foundations for your child’s future education, where happiness and friendship are at the heart of all that we do.

The Nursery is bright and cheerful, buzzing with discovery and we have plenty of room for outside adventure.

We ensure a safe environment in which children are free to play, develop their curiosity and discover the world around them.

Please do come and visit us. I would be delighted to show you around.
