Sprat & Winkle Day Nursery

Sprat & Winkle Day Nursery

“A holistic and nurturing education station.”

A Natural Woodland Setting

Sprat & Winkle Day Nursery is opening in September 2021 and we are already taking bookings with a limited number of spaces! We take children from 3 months to 5 years and provide an extended school holiday provision for children up to Key Stage 2.

Our nursery is situated in a beautiful open setting at The Pavilion on Wherwell playing fields adjacent to Wherwell Primary School. We are a community based setting catering for children from the local villages and surrounding areas and we will be providing a minibus service from local pick up points to provide easy transport options for parents and exciting trips out for the children.

Our stunning rural setting provides free flow play between exciting indoor and outside spaces. We have access to a public play area, football fields and tennis courts. We also have access to a beautiful woodland in which we can provide regular Forest School learning.

Nurturing Minds

Sprat & Winkle Day Nursery will provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment with a focus on Learning through Play. We will focus on each child’s individual interests and allowing their natural inclination to explore to unlock their unique potential. We enable each child to be confident, challenged and successful, gaining high self-esteem, resilience and overall promoting good mental health and well being. We aim to maintain and keep providing high-quality childcare, supporting a natural transition to full-time schooling.

Parent Friendly Hours

We will open every weekday morning from 8am to 6pm. We will be offering nutritious and delicious home-cooked meals and regular healthy snacks and drinks throughout the day.

We will be taking bookings for a minimum of two sessions per week and we are registered for up to 24 children per session depending on ages and in accordance with Ofsted ratio guidance.

The government provides funding for some two-year-old children and all three and four-year-old children in Hampshire to receive up to 30 hours of free nursery education depending on meeting the relevant criteria. Please ask for more information about this funding and our fees.

Forest School Facilities

We are situated in a wonderful natural woodland setting with our own forest school area and will offer regular forest school sessions provided by our own certified Forest School Practitioner. Forest Schooling provides a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through play, exploration and support risk-taking. It develops children’s confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.
