Welcome to The Manor Farm Nursery.

Lechlade’s most Popular Day Nursery and Holiday Club

About Us

The Manor Farm Nursery was bought in April 2016 by Josh and Kirsty, whose three children also attend the setting. Under the new ownership we have focused on improving the facilities in which the children have the opportunities to learn, within our safe contained boundaries on our large plot of farmland and within the purpose
built barn conversion.

We believe the quality of care for your children comes best through an experienced team of highly Qualified Nursery staff, who are supported by a strong Management team and Trainees. All Staff hold a Paediatric First Aid Certificate, Safeguarding Training and have an enhanced DBS.

Manor Farm Nursery

We Are Highly Experienced

With 27 Qualified Nursery Nurses and our Managers who have over 30 years of childcare experience between them and all are mummies themselves, there’s no shortage of understanding for you as Parents or Guardians so we can meet your individual child’s needs. Our established team means we comfortably cover staff holidays, sickness and maternity leave with familiar faces and equally experienced staff.

Our dedicated Food and Hygiene Manager, Qualified Chef Jamie, cooks all our healthy lunches and tea. We are one of very few Childcare settings to qualify for a Committed Certificate with the
Early Years Nutritional Partnership, whereby meals are minimal in sugar or fat, and we have a milk and
water only policy.

We also work closely with our Early Years Local Authority Teams to regularly evaluate our practice and offer the best possible opportunities to part and full time children, including providing a Key Worker to observe and monitor your child’s progress, and asking for Early Help where appropriate, so your child is ready for School when
they leave Manor Farm.

We capture each child’s development on an online Learning Journal accessible to parents and guardians from home, where you can also add your own photos and activities.

All children are to do a minimum of two sessions per week, to support children settling and to track their progress effectively. We offer 2, 3 and 4 year old funding, including up to 30 hours enhanced 3/4 year old funding, for eligible parents. Full Terms and Conditions of how to secure a space on our waiting list and our Terms of Booking, including payment options can be confirmed on visiting the setting.

“Throughout the Nursery the Staff are clearly competent in their jobs, the children are engaged in fun activities which help them learn at every stage, they develop good manners”
