  • Who we are

    Outdoor play is at the heart of our childcare ethos here at the nursery, with weekly Forest School sessions

    The Old Station Nursery Filkins provided children with plenty of opportunities to explore the world around them.

    Nestled in a charming village near Lechlade, our nursery offers a picturesque setting and lays the strongest foundations for children’s future. Housed in the Old Village School, our nursery boasts two rooms that exude a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

    From their second birthday, children are warmly welcomed into our nursery, becoming part of the vibrant 2–4-year-olds’ room. We ensure that the room is equipped with age-appropriate resources and plan activities tailored to suit each child’s unique interests. Moreover, we prioritise ample outdoor time for the children.

    As children progress and grow, they move on to our Pre-School room—a safe and nurturing environment where they can learn and play. We encourage child-led activities whenever possible, while our dedicated team also provides structured sessions. In addition, our Pre-School children enjoy weekly French lessons and other engaging activities that prepare them for their transition to school.

    "Our child loves the Old Station Nursery"

    "Our child loves the Old Station Nursery, which is the main thing, he sometimes enquires at weekends if he can go to nursery today. The nursery itself is a wonderful little place with good outdoor and indoor spaces for him to play and learn and small enough for him to know all of his little classmates.
    The staff are wonderful and keep the children entertained all day, and also teach the children a great deal, most days we get told about what our little boy has learned that day, and what he did. It will be a sad day for him and us when he has to leave and move on to big school."

    "The staff are so caring and nurturing"

    "Filkins is a wonderful nursery. My son has been attending for 10 months and he has come on leaps and bounds with his confidence, speech and general social skills. The staff are so caring and nurturing and my son feels very secure and looked after there. The outdoor space is second to none which suits him well too.
    The communication between the nursery and parents is great and there is always a large range of activities on offer."

    "I highly recommend it for the knowledge, skill and attitude"

    "My daughter loved every day at Filkins Nursery, everyone is very caring and they have a fantastic variety of educational activities. Always prompt to respond to calls and the communication was just fantastic. I highly recommend it for the knowledge, skill and attitude. Thank you so much for the amazing things you have taught to my little one."

    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many familiesoff choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.
