Our Dymock nursery is based in the grounds of Ann Cam C of E Primary School, Dymock, which is just 4 miles from Newent and 5 miles from Ledbury. The nursery building is actually attached to the school by the large hall (full of great gym equipment), that is available for us to use whenever the school don’t need it.

Because we are within the school’s grounds, the environment is very safe and secure. Our space is small but perfectly formed for 18 children and all the bases are covered – we have a reading area, quiet resting space, messy play (water, sand etc), simple cooking facilities, toilets for little people, role play wardrobe, computer corner and loads of resources to fulfil the most creative of minds.

The patio doors allow us to have free flow play into our fabulous playground with climbing equipment, bikes, playhouse and definitely more messy play.  When it’s really warm, sitting under the big old tree for a story is always a winner.

Our relationship with the school enables us to create a seamless transition into reception class (even in a different school), because during their pre-school year with us your child will have lots of opportunities for shared time in the Ann Cam reception class.

Roni has loved being at Happy Turtles. He has made new friends, grown in confidence and has been nurtured and cared for. Happy Turtles staff are excellent and the activities are always engaging!
