The Farm approach

  • Learning through play’s our thing – nurturing natural curiosity at an individual pace
  • Physical health, wellbeing and movement’s easy when you’re based in a rural idyll
  • In line with the government curriculum for early years learning, we use 7 areas to plan your littlie’s learning and activities. We focus on the 3 prime areas first (the ones most essential for your child’s healthy development and future learning):
    • Communication and language
    • Physical development
    • Personal, social and emotional development
  • As your child grows, we develop skills in the next 4 areas:
    • Literacy
    • Mathematics
    • Understanding the world
    • Expressive arts and design

Time to go on an adventure in learning.

Our team

  • We respect our staff. They’re doing the most important job and we treat them accordingly.
  • Your children’s keyworker understands your child’s individual emotional, physical and developmental needs.
  • Communication with your child’s keyworker is always two-way and open.
  • You know your child best. We defer to you as primary caregivers to guide us in our approach to your child.
  • Our team is trained in accordance with govt. guidelines and has proven experience and love for childcare.

Give your child a home-from-home nursery experience.

Stress-free mornings

  • Flexible pick up/drop off times
  • Early drop-off so you can catch your train
  • There’s no rush, we’re open later
  • We work drop off at your child’s pace and are led by your parental instinct, take as long as you need.

Make it easy on yourself.

Flex Appeal

  • Limited day spaces available for when you need an extra hand.
  • If your child has been settled at the farm within the previous 8 weeks we can accommodate you at a moment’s notice, on an ad hoc basis.

Give yourself a break.
