Finkley Down Farm Nursery

Finkley Down Farm Nursery & Preschool is a unique childcare facility in the heart of Andover. Opened by outstanding childcare professional, Alison Dennis in September 2017, it combines the award-winning Finkley Down Farm attraction with exceptional childcare.

They provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for children aged 2-5 years to learn and discover through play.

The Setting

The setting has been purposefully designed around every aspect of a child’s development. Although in its own setting, it is adjacent to the main Finkley Down Farm site, allowing the children unlimited access to the farm and use of all its facilities through a private access gate.

The setting has its own large garden which has been designed with children in mind and includes a sensory area, hard standing, vegetable plots, mud kitchen and much more. Inside we have done away with the conventional rooms and created a free flow environment. The children are free to explore the ICT area, fully fitted child size working kitchen, role play area, sensory room and much more.

The great thing is not only do the children have all of the above they also have private access to an award winning farm park. Can it get much better?
