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.

School Holiday Activities


In the School Holidays Growing Together run a variety of activities. We post details on our lastest news/facebook page – click here.

They often include a day trip for children aged 4 – 8 to a local country park, and one off events like fundraisers or things for children like a teddy bears picnic.

We also run FISH with  Emmanuel Church and Blackthorn Primary school – providing food and fun once a week in all school holidays apart from Christmas.

Details of all of these can be found on our latest news/facebook pages – we often run other activities in school holidays.
