About Arcadia

A place to learn, play and imagine

Arcadia is a purpose-built nursery designed around the concept of free-play. We adopt an ethos of child-led learning which focuses on each child as an individual, considering their individual needs and interests.

At Arcadia, we believe that the chance to learn is all around us and every child should grow in their own unique way.

Our indoor environment is designed to encourage and support free flow play. Large, open plan rooms allow for children to move easily between all areas of the room. Sand and water play are accessible at all times of the day. Children are supported to be independent in their play by staff who facilitate their learning.

Our outdoor environment provides many further opportunities for learning. The children have free flow access to the garden throughout the day and can choose to be indoors or outdoors. The garden is designed to provide a range of different experiences and children are encouraged and supported to assess risk for themselves as they play.

The local area provides opportunity for the children to integrate in to their local community by engaging in trips to the library, local shops and nearby parks and woodlands.

At Arcadia Nursery, children are free to explore their own abilities without limitations.
