Title: Nursery launches in special woodland setting
Date: 2nd February 2022
On Monday 31st January, Bluebell Nursery – part of the Langley family – officially opened a brand new Baby Room for ages 6 months and above, during a special unveiling.
Langley Headmaster Mr Jon Perriss was joined by EYFS Governor Dr Hannah Nearney to cut the ribbon and declare the Baby Room open.
Bluebell Nursery Managers Kym Carey and Meganne Smith jointly comment, “We are delighted to be able to help local families by offering a small setting with a homely feel. We also provide all-year-round childcare, not just school term time.”
The Nursery is based at the Langley Prep School site in Taverham, home to the neo-Jacobian Taverham Hall, where the milestone of 100 years of education is celebrated this year.
A unique benefit of the setting is that the Nursery is nestled within 100 acres of parkland and ancient woodland, where Langley Prep School’s Outdoor Learning Centre sees pupils playing and learning out in nature every day.
Kym and Meganne continue, “Bluebell Nursery is a very special place and, when they drive into the School grounds, parents see all the potential that lies ahead of their little ones. We are so thrilled to be offering care from 6 months old, as we know this is often the age of a child when parents might return to work and need childcare.”
The brand new Baby Room, named Seedlings, is for ages 6 months to 2 years, and it precedes Acorns and Oaks Classes. There is very much a natural path for little ones to then move up to Reception, Years 1 and 2 or, if following a path through the School, onwards to Langley’s Transition Class at 3 years old.
