Opportunities to explore.
With both of our settings being located on the 24 acre site of the garden centre, we are very fortunate that we benefit from lots of space and therefore opportunities to explore. Whether visiting the garden centre and its pet shop, or trips to our very own fully enclosed Forest School area, we really do like to make the most of every opportunity!
Outdoor Play is incredibly important to us and so to be on such a large site, where our nurseries benefit from large gardens and Forest School activities, allows the children to have even more fun and learning opportunities.
Grace’s Ruxley was our first nursery and is sited in the grounds of Ruxley Manor Garden Centre with our over 2’s building occupying the old manor house right at the heart of the garden centre.
Our under 2’s building is almost opposite, in the curtilage of the Scheduled Ancient Monument of St Botolph’s Church.
Grace's Nursery House.
Grace’s Nursery House is also located at the garden centre, at the back of the site and enjoys a lovely backdrop of the Ruxley Woods, with far reaching views over Joyden’s Wood. It also has what must be a unique claim of having a paddock of real reindeer as its neighbours!
