  • babies, 0-2 years
  • toddlers , 2-3 years
  • pre-schoolers, 3-5 years

Each room has their own access to the garden.

Come and join us at our Open Day where you can speak with our team, find out more about our brand new nursery and pick up an enrolment pack.

Our staff

Our friendly staff reflect our values – listening, caring, welcoming, exciting, inspiring and active, ensuring your child has the best nursery experience possible.  Our staff will be qualified in childcare and able to draw upon the skills and experiences of our 12 other settings. As such, we use best practice to continuously improve the care we offer and respond to each child’s level of development, abilities and interests. Statutory ratios are abided by at all times, with 1 staff member for every 3 babies, 1 staff for every 4 toddlers and 1 staff for every 8 pre-schoolers.

It’s a partnership

We recognise the valuable contribution that parents bring to nursery life, and believe that by working together, every child can be given the opportunity and support to thrive and build all of the skills needed to be a happy, healthy and confident individual.

Convenient location

The latest addition to our Hampshire settings, our purpose built East Anton Nursery is located in the heart of the new Augusta Park development in Andover.

Brand new building

The spacious rooms are light and airy and our large outdoor area is home to impressive features, where children can play and learn. Outdoor play allows children to develop their imagination and language as well as physical movement and we use it to the full! With plenty of trees and natural areas, our garden is a place for children to explore and create their own adventures – check back soon to see the garden design.
