  • Who we are

    A small quaint nursery set in the heart of Poppleton

    A home-from-home setting with an organic ethos.

    Our beautiful nursery is nestled in the small village of Poppleton and is the perfect location for our outdoor-focused ethos, centered around the importance of learning and playing in nature. 

    Every day, we provide care for up to 60 children where we aim to create a home-from-home environment whilst providing all things natural, locally sourced, and organic where possible – no added nasties in food or skincare.  

    Toys and resources are made from natural and sustainable materials and even the electricity is sourced from an ethical supplier. We deliver inspiring and educational activities which help to nurture a child’s confidence, communication and relationships.

    "The staff at Honey Pots are all like family"

    "Our daughter is extremely happy at Honey Pots. She started off by attending two days per week and quickly adapted to the comfortable settings. She now attends four days per week and it has improved her development immensely. The staff at Honey Pots are all like family to her and I know when she has to start school it will be difficult for her to transition."

    "The managers are very helpful and accommodating"

    "Our daughter has had extra support externally to assist with her development and Honey Pots have been extremely supportive of her needs. They have worked together to bring her development up-to-speed and she is now almost equal with her peers. The other children and families are always so friendly and I am glad that my daughter will be moving on to school with friends that she knows from the nursery. The managers are very helpful and accommodating, space permitting, any extra days that have had to be arranged at short notice. The setting is rural but idyllic for days out in the summer when regular walks are taken."

    Helping pay for your childcare

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.
