Why Blois Meadow Day Nursery?

Blois Meadow Day Nursery is a family run nursery in a peaceful off road location at the edge of the village of Steeple Bumpstead, close to Haverhill.  It was taken over in 2012 by Alison Midgley, an experienced primary and early years teacher.

The nursery provides top quality care and early education for children from three months up to the age of five.  It was awarded an “outstanding” grade by Ofsted the following year and was one of five finalists for the UK Nursery of the Year Award in 2014.

The nursery is open on weekdays all year round and offers complete flexibility, with sessions ranging from full time care to full days, half days or special booking patterns to suit your convenience.

Come and see the nursery for yourself.  Call us now on 01440 730520 or email to arrange a visit.
