Farley Nursery School, Sparsholt offers a truly unique outdoor learning environment where children play, learn and above all enjoy growing up in the wonderful outdoors.
The three Yurt classrooms provide a special haven for the children. Their ash framework is sourced from a local forest and the canvas frames are wrapped with organic sheepswool in Winter. Despite this, the children spend almost all of their time outdoors.
Children at Sparsholt benefit from on-site access to the zoo and dairy farm at Sparsholt College where they watch the lambing in spring and visit the pigs and the dairy on a regular basis. Children are also encouraged to get involved in every stage of crop growing on the nursery vegetable patch, from planting the pumpkin, courgette and sweetcorn seeds to watering, harvesting and even eating the fresh produce during outdoor picnic time!

When our son started at Farley, it was like tasting ice cream for the first time - except we got to have the ice cream everyday! He had no problems settling in because every morning, when dropping him off, the adventure was about to start.
Our boys are free to explore and experiment supported by lovely staff who nurture their natural curiosity and eagerness to learn. We wouldn't dream of sending them anywhere else.
Farley has provided the ideal environment for our daughter to learn, play and gain confidence in. We have been so pleased and impressed that we plan to send our second child to Farley too.
My two children often come home covered in mud, paint, glitter or all 3 but greet me with beaming smiles every time I pick them up no matter what the weather's doing.
The staff treat all the children as if their own, making sure their individual needs are met. The outdoor ethos is magical and a welcome change from other normal nursery settings. Thank you Farley!
Sue, I just wanted to tell how beyond fantastic and marvellous your staff have been, and to thank you for employing such amazing people who make leaving my baby so much easier.
