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. Most children in the Nursery are accessing their free entitlement but we do take some fee paying children.
