Forest School:
  Sunshine Corner and Rainbow Room regularly visit the nearby Forest School for fun outdoor learning.
Coach Garry:
  Coach Garry visits the Nursery every two weeks for beginners football and athletics skills with the 2-4 year olds.
  The Pre-schoolers learn French in a relaxed and engaging way with a French teacher.

  We visit the local play areas, feed the ducks, visit the local library, and at certain times take the children to the local market.


Our children thrive in a safe and supportive environment, according to the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage, where we work in partnership with the parents.

We offer children a homely family atmosphere, and to ensure that this is maintained we keep staffing levels high, and ratios as generous as we can, ensuring quality throughout.

We are a Community Interest Company, and as such it is very important that we serve the local community in offering high quality childcare and employing local staff and trades people where possible.

We are set in an attractive residential area of Saffron Walden, serving the locality & within commuting distance of London & Cambridge.

The Nursery was established in the late 1980’s by parents of the Bell Language School, later to be taken over by senior members of staff, two of whom are still Managers to this day.

Over the past few years the Nursery has grown and in April 2011 we moved into our newly refurbished college building, adjacent to the original setting.

Bell Day Nursery is open for 51 weeks of the year. We open at 08:00 hrs and close at 18:00 hrs Mondays to Fridays , and offer both full days and half days.
