An Inspirational Approach

Across our Day Nurseries, our progressive, highly qualified practitioners and teachers are committed to offering children stimulating learning opportunities following the Early Years Foundation Stage which engages each individual child.

Protecting Wellbeing

We promote a healthy lifestyle in a safe, secure environment. Each Nursery has a large purpose-built outdoor play space as well as award-winning indoor learning environments. Nutritionally balanced by a dietitian, our award-winning meals are cooked freshly on site every day. We teach children the skills they need to regulate their own behaviour and to assess risk for themselves.

Exceptional Quality

Our multi award-winning, reflective practice is delivered by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners. Continual investment, external quality assurance and ongoing development, along with our partnerships with parents, schools and the community, ensures we give each child a strong foundation for future learning.

A Nurturing Experience

Each child is supported and valued. We respect differences, encouraging and enabling each unique child to reach their full potential in a welcoming, happy environment.

Bonfire Night

The children have had a wonderful time investigating different media to create their own fireworks. They have learnt about how to keep safe when watching the fireworks, around a bonfire and when using sparklers. The children also reminded each other that the firefighters will come and help if needed. The younger children have also been watching videos of fireworks and listening to the different noises.

This week we have been marking Remembrance Day with the children

This two-minute animation from CBeebies, titled ‘Poppies’, is a gentle introduction for younger children to Remembrance and Armistice Day.

The BAFTA-nominated film follows a rabbit playing in a meadow that gradually becomes a First World War battlefield.


We are delighted to announce that Elmscot Broussa and Elmscot Woodlands both have category nominations for the Nursery World Awards.

Woodlands are a finalist for Nursery Manager of the Year and also the Health & Wellbeing Award.

Broussa are finalists for the Nursery Food Award

This is a tremendous achievement against extremely tough competition. This year there were an astounding number of entries from across the country, so being shortlisted is an incredible feat.

We wish them the best of luck for the finals!


NMT Nursery Awards Finalists 2020

Outdoor Learning National Finalists

Elmscot Broussa has been shortlisted as a finalist for their National Outdoor Learning Award. Spending plenty of time outdoors is vital for children’s wellbeing, and in these difficult times, getting plenty of fresh air is more important than ever. We spend much of our time here at Broussa outdoors – to play, discover and to learn. We are therefore thrilled to have been recognised by NMT.

Nursery Practitioner National Finalist

Leann Banks at Elmscot Poppies has been shortlisted as a finalist for their Individual Practitioner Award, and as a much loved team member Poppies are thrilled at the recognition for her as amongst the very best practitioners nationally. One of the most important influences on your children’s wellbeing at nursery is the people who care for them.


We are delighted that Nursery World have recognised our much loved Elmscot Woodlands Nursery Manager, Danielle.

She is a national finalist for the Nursery World ‘Nursery Manager’ award – recognising her as amongst the very best nursery managers nationally.

One of the most important influences on your children’s wellbeing at nursery are the people caring for them and we are delighted to have the best working with us.

Well done Danielle!
