Our aim at Notting Hill is to provide care and education for young children in a safe, stimulating environment.
We offer both part-time and full-time care for children aged between birth and five years., across three separate rooms, a Baby Room from birth to 2 years old, a toddler room for 2-3 year olds and a pre-school room for 3-4 year olds.
Notting Hill is located in a rural area between Axbridge, Wedmore and Weare in Somerset, and as such, we are fortunate to have a large garden, with outdoor toys, a mud kitchen and forest school, where we do much of our learning when the weather allows.
Other activities we offer include Boogie Beat, cookery and yoga, and we make use of the area around Badgworth Barns to go on walks, run a bike club, and visit the nearby pigs and horses.
The nursery have a full time cook who freshly prepares all the children's meals and snacks every day.
