Our Nursery

Our Bishops Stortford nursery benefits from a large garden and outdoor play space which allows us to develop age appropriate outdoor activities, such as digging and planting, sand play and experimenting with sand, mud and water.

Sycamore House Day Nursery in Bishops Stortford is located on Hadham Road – 0.25 miles (a 3 minute walk) from Bishop’s Stortford College and under 0.5 miles (a 5 minute walk) from the Railway Station, and we are convenient and accessible with our own on-site parking.

We occupy a lovely detached ‘period’ building with large rooms and high ceilings, and many original features. The nature of the building, with its bright and airy rooms, gives our children lots of space to explore, play and learn. Our Bishops Stortford nursery has been totally refurbished with love and care, and is a beautiful space for our children to enjoy, with a homely welcoming feel in which we nurture and care for children and their families.

We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies (3 months to 12 months), our toddlers (12 months to 24 months), our 2 -3 year olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group.

If you visit our day nursery in Bishops Stortford, you’ll see that it benefits from a large garden and outdoor play space, which allows us to develop age appropriate outdoor activities. This space is a mixture of grassed and hardstanding areas. We have designated digging and planting areas in our ‘Veggie Patch’ which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. And we have a huge ‘sand play’ area and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.

Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Bishops Stortford with such extensive outdoor facilities, we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest, and IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.

We are committed to remaining the best day nursery in Bishops Stortford, and to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.

We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:

  • Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
  • Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
  • Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
  • Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
  • Children and adults having fun!

We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Sycamore House Day Nursery in Bishops Stortford.
