At Springfield we aim to make everyone feel welcome and provide a caring, happy and secure setting supporting the development, learning and care of your child. The team is managed with passion and dedication which is evident from the low staff turnover, happy children and parent’s positive input and feedback. 


We have exclusive use of an idyllic setting in The Grove on the edge of Alexandra Park where the emphasis is on making learning fun!  The bright, spacious indoor space is warm and welcoming with wonderful displays of the children’s art work.  There is a cosy book corner, a delightful home corner and plenty of room for table and floor-based activities. As well as free play we offer some structured topic based activities too to teach early years concepts and curriculum and we also have a weekly cooking club, woodwork activity and an allotment to maintain!.


Springfield also benefits from an exceptionally large outdoor space which the children are free to access throughout the session whatever the weather!  There is so much to see, hear, smell and touch.  Children make obstacle courses and build dens, we love to watch children communicating with each other and forming friendships in the natural setting.  Recently, we have extended our children’s learning environment by opening up the woodland area which offers an incredibly stimulating and multi sensory place to play.  This area is filled with endless opportunities for creation which encourages and promotes well being and unlocks every child’s inquisitive mind.


Morning: 9:00-12:00
Afternoon: 12:30-15:30

There are AM and PM sessions Monday to Friday. Children can stay for full days
(with packed lunch) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
