About Us

Our Cinderford setting is a purpose-built nursery for children aged 3 months to 11 years. We operate 51 weeks per year and are open from 7:00am until 6:00pm. The nursery is divided into 5 main areas: Babies, Toddlers, Preschool, Soft Play and Kitchen & Dining. We also have a large safe and secure outdoor area where the children are free to let their imaginations run riot out in the fresh air. We take children from all parishes throughout the Forest of Dean and have some children from further afield. We work closely with local primary schools and other childcare provisions.

Our main room is fitted with an amazing set of soft play equipment, which children of all ages absolutely love. It features a huge variety of obstacles and challenges such as the climbing ramp, the suspended scramble net walkways and the swirly slide. This is such a benefit to the children’s physical development as they learn risk taking and build the vital strengths that we all need, such as confidence and resilience.

We prepare a hot lunch every day in our kitchen using fresh ingredients, making sure that the children get healthy, highly nutritious meals. We believe that it is important that children avoid too much salt, sugar and fat and so we make sure our recipes are all really tasty without too much of those. Our lunch menu is based on a three week cycle to make sure we offer a real variety. We provide a morning and afternoon snack for everyone and the children can help themselves at any time from the fruit bowl in each room that we always keep full.

Through love and play we help children develop the necessary strengths to make their world what they want it to be. We provide love, security, and endless play-derived skill development opportunities. Our hope is to help children gain the skills they need for each step of the their journey.
