Awarded by Chiltern District Council

Established in October 2012, the nursery has 96 child places at any one time for children from 3 months to 5 years.

We are open Monday to Friday 7.30am – 7.00pm all year round except for public bank holidays. We offer morning and afternoon session, full days or a full week. There are no minimum number of sessions.

Our premises offer ample parking and once inside the rooms are divided into appropriate age groups. We arrange for children with a sibling or friend to visit their group during the day to spend some time together. We also have a separate room called the Adventure Play Room which contains a floor to ceiling soft play area, a ball pool and other exciting activities.

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). Fresh ingredients are locally sourced i.e. meat is supplied by W.H. Higgins of Chorleywood, fruit and vegetables are supplied by Grocer on the Green.

We have a variety of extra curriculum activities throughout the year such as music groups, language classes, sport sessions with Challenge Sport & Education, dance classes with Dinky Dancers etc.

Old MacDonald’s Latimer is surrounded by open farmland and woodland enabling us to embrace Forest schooling. It is a modern well appointed building with beautiful views over the surrounding countryside and Chess valley.
