Learning Experiences at Orchidale Children's Nursery
Orchidale’s magical single storey rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, light and airy. Our experienced interior design team have equipped our nursery with the highest quality purpose built Community Play furniture. Our nursery rooms are extensively resourced with age appropriate learning and play toys. For Orchidale children and parents every interest and desire is catered for!
And Our Nursery Garden ...
Our nursery garden is an expansive and exciting outdoor space that leads into our magical, Forest School garden at the Norfolk Showground, where the natural world’s miracles are just waiting to be discovered. Here, our children are in fresh, rural air and develop a shared joy and a sense of wonder about nature. In our much-loved vegetable patch, they can learn to grow, tend and harvest – and even eat the rewards if they’re lucky! Inside, the nursery is open-plan and bright, a homely environment where children are watched carefully by our highly qualified and experienced team. Under their guidance and in the warm, family atmosphere, our children build curiosity and thinking, and gaining the skills that make them ready for their next steps in learning.
Our wide curriculum includes Yoga, Gardening, Cooking Club and Forest School. We are lucky enough to have termly visitors including Zoolab and the local fire brigade. With all our activities, and particularly in our outdoor learning and Forest School, we encourage children to take risks and challenge themselves safely. We also have on-board a qualified Preschool Teacher in whose capable hands the children have been introduced to and have expanded their knowledge of phonics, language, science and mathematics.
Our very own minibus
We are fortunate to be able to take our children out on all our special trips in our very own 8 seater minibus which is equipped with excellent childrens seats. Children from 2-5 absolutely love this extra special journey, whether it is to our Forest School Garden in The Norfolk Showground or to a Museum or Nature Reserve.

"An absolutely amazing nursery with the best staff who go over and above to provide for the children every single day. The experiences our child gains from being at nursery are just amazing, regular trips to forest school, woodwork, watching ducklings hatch and grow, baking and painting. There really is no limit!"
