The Manor House.
The Manor House was our first day nursery that we opened back in 2011, converting Grandma Grace and Grandpa Cyril’s home into a wonderful nursery. Grace’s Ruxley operates out of 2 buildings, our under 2’s (Little Grace’s) and our over 2’s in the Manor House.
The children benefit from spacious outdoor areas as well as a soft playroom, children’s kitchen, library and sensory room. The nursery is full of character with low ceilings and wooden beams, which gives it a home from home feel.

"Our son has developed so much over his first year. He’s a confident sociable little boy who just seems to thrive in their environment and I have no doubt this is down to the level of security he feels from the staff members."
Located just along the garden centre drive from the Manor House is Little Grace’s, which caters for our children aged from 3 months to 2 years.
Having a dedicated building for our under 2’s gives the younger children the chance to settle into nursery life in a calmer environment, before they transition across to the Manor House when they turn 2. It also allows us to enable the building to be completely age appropriate, including the garden area.
Both of the Ruxley Manor settings are open from 7am to 7pm, giving parents greater flexibility to their working day and for 52 weeks of the year, only closing for Bank Holidays and two Training Days.
We have our own dedicated Nursery Cook, who works closely with the Early Years Nutrition Partnership, to ensure that we provide the very best meals possible for our children, constantly reviewing our menu and ensuring that all allergies are safely taken care of.
