At our beautiful Wicken Park site, our Nursery offers outstanding care and facilities for children aged 12 months to four years all year round, providing a safe and happy springboard for your child’s education.

We welcome little ones from the age of 12 months to our private Nursery. Based at our Junior School in the village of Wicken near Milton Keynes, the Nursery is cosseted within the main school house and very much a part of Akeley Wood School. It is open from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, 51 weeks of the year.

Nursery and Reception were significantly refurbished in 2016 and are modern, fit-for-purpose learning spaces. Nursery comprises four spacious rooms tailored to the different age groups as well as an enclosed outdoor play area.

Pre-schoolers, aged three and four, benefit from specialist teaching every week in Computing, PE, Forest School, French and Music, as well as having literacy and numeracy lessons with nursery practitioners.

Come along to a forthcoming Nursery Coffee Morning to learn more.
