Rural Private Day Nursery

Apples & Pears have converted an existing cattle cubicle shed into a replacement nursery building, with part funding from European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

The new nursery building benefits from lovely views over the farmland and the design incorporates open plan flexibility and improved free flow between the outdoor play space and the nursery rooms, with capacity for 115 children, spread over 5 classrooms, with a secure, safe immediate access to outdoor rubberised play area.

Children also have the opportunity to experience supervised access to extensive fields and footpaths, owned by us. With your agreement, children have regular visits to see and care for the nursery pets and menagerie of other animals. 

The Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) is funded by Defra and the EU. The European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD): Europe investing in rural areas.
