Established in February 1998, the nursery has 74 child places at any one time for children from 3 months to 5 years

We are open Monday to Friday 7.30 am - 7.00 pm all year round except for public bank holidays. We offer morning and afternoon sessions, full days or a full week.

Upon entering nursery premises, the main building on your left is for children from 3 months to 3½ years.

The building on your right is our Pre-school unit which is for children from 3 to 5 years, here children are requested to wear uniform. We follow The Early Years Foundation Stage for children from Birth to 5 years.

Our cook produces nutritious home-made food, the children having breakfast, a mid-morning snack, hot home-made lunch and dessert, afternoon snack and then a high tea (all-day children receive all of these, morning/afternoon children receive the meals applicable for the time of day).

We have a variety of extra curriculum activities throughout the year such as Mini Macs in house music group, Spanish lessons for the Pre-school children, fire brigade (with their engine) and Ameyzoo with exotic animals ect.

As the name suggests, Old MacDonald's – Bovingdon is surrounded by open farmland. The main farm and fields beyond us (covering 200+ acres) are home to donkeys, sheep, goats, horses, cows and chickens where we go for walks, weather permitting, to see the animals.
