About Forest House Nurseries Group

At Forest House Nurseries we provide high quality care in an enriched learning environment

We believe...

That all children should be given the best start in their educational journey. We believe our responsibility is not just to provide first class child care but to provide a broad, balanced and fun early educational experience that will help prepare children for learning in the 21st Century.

Why forest house...

As parents ourselves, we know just how important it is to find the right care for your child to feel happy, safe and secure.
When our first daughter was born, we had difficulty in finding the right nursery which provided the very best in care and education for her. They seemed
to fall into two categories; those that were usually individually owned and, while frequently provided a caring approach, offered little in the way of high quality facilities with a strong focus on both children’s care and learning. Or, highly corporate institutions which were lacking in the intimacy and warmth that is essential for our children, especially in these very vulnerable first few years of their lives. We wanted to develop the very best in care and education and as a result our first nursery was born in 2006. Since then we have grown and expanded over the years, developing our nurseries to ensure each one provides the individual, caring approach we wanted from day one.
We bring a strong educational background to the nurseries and work very closely with the team and the children to ensure standards are always extremely high and the quality of care and education is the very best. Together we work hard to improve, update and continually develop our service to ensure your child gets the very best they deserve.
