A child development centre that ticks every box

Madresfield Early Years Centre practices excellent standards of care and education to ensure that daily learning is fun and exciting and every child is carefully nurtured to achieve their full potential.

Our Centre is set on a working dairy farm with innovative buildings and superb outdoor facilities. Nutritious farmhouse meals are served daily and there is a strong focus on outdoor and physical education. From babyhood onwards, children are guided through a wide curriculum that extends far beyond the requirements of Foundation Stage, delivered by a team of highly skilled and experienced staff.  We have extensive woodland and adventure facilities, an equipped gymnasium, cookery and computer areas, and a wide range of learning and play areas - both indoors and outdoors - ensuring that the needs of each child are appropriately catered for. Since its foundation in 1994, the Centre has received 6 outstanding OFSTED reports and its success has been noted in Whitehall as well as in local Centre of Excellence Schemes. Madresfield has won three National Awards, one for the Indoor Learning Environment and the second for Outdoor Learning, as well as being awarded the prestigious 'Best Nursery in the UK' by the National Day Nursery Association. Due to consistent leadership, a strong staff team and a well established philosophy on the vital importance of early years' development, our Centre has been in a position to offer local children the very best in Early Years education.

Comprehensive care

We cater for a wide range for babies from 6 weeks in a specialist baby care department and toddlers in one of our two intimate family rooms.  A creche offers sessional care and the Nursery and Preschool rooms deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage programme and fully qualify for government funding and employer vouchers.

"Dear Mrs Bennett,

I don’t know where to begin to thank you for all that you have done for Molly over the past six years. I know if it was not for you and MEYC, she would not be the child that she is and there are not enough words in the English language to express how I feel. Your school and your staff have given our precious little girl the most brilliant start in life. We will miss you all very much but you have given us the most amazing memories."
