Blackthorn Good Neighbours Nursery

BGN Nursery offers places to children age 2 – 4years.

Blackthorn Good Neighbours Nursery Opened in January 2015. Since then we have been able to give our local children and families fantastic opportunities. We aim at encouraging our children to become confident and happy learners…but most importantly we have lots of fun!


We promote natural learning experiences, which often involve getting messy, so bring lots of spare clothes when you come.

Rated OUTSTANDING in all areas

We have had lots of fun the last few weeks learning about different festivals. We talked about the Festival of Light and explored pumpkins. We toasted mashmallows on our bonfire and talked about the soliders who looked after us in the war.
