Our Ethos

For many years we have run educational visits in the farm for all ages of children. We are very passionate about sharing this amazing environment with the next generation.

The 60 place nursery is for children aged between 3 months and 5 years and is open Monday - Friday for 51 weeks of the year. Our opening hours are 7.30am - 6.00pm.

The nursery is purpose-built to allow children to be at one with nature and the outdoors. The nursery has three rooms, each catering for different age groups. All of these rooms lead out to a large private, secure outdoor play area so children can choose where they want to play and therefore learn all year round. There is a large canopy that ensures that children can play outside in all weathers and we also provide wet weather clothing so the children can play happily in the rain or snow, as they wish.

We also have a huge field just beyond the children’s garden where the children tend their fruit and vegetables in the raised beds, care for the nursery chickens and enjoy endless forest school activities.

There are other animals on the farm, including the nursery pygmy goats and the children are involved in their care and help with their daily routine. This care for nature and animals is absolutely core to our ethos of a loving, nurturing environment where the children in our care can flourish.

The children regularly walk around the farm so they can enjoy, and learn about the seasonal changes of the farm, both crops and wildlife, and purely enjoy the space and fresh air that we have to offer. We have quad cross country buggies so even the smallest of our children can see this on this on the farm. Take a look at our On the farm page to see more about this.

Come Visit Us

We strongly believe in play based learning. We provide an environment, everyday, where children can develop through play.

We know each child as the individual that they are and through this we set up activities to progress their development. We do not pressurise the children, rather we provide a fun stimulating environment where a love for learning is developed.

Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community

To share a child’s development and daily diary with parents we use an app called Parentzone. This means that parents can see photos and videos of their children through the day, receive learning records, meal updates and any other information.

We know that our members of staff are the most important part of the nursery. We have a wonderful, diverse team who truly care about early years and provide a caring and inspiring teaching and learning environment for all the children in our care.

At Molescroft Farm we fully understand that choosing the right childcare for your child is a daunting experience but rest assured that the needs of your child are always our top priority.

What We Do

Environment

We are always trying to find ways to be as environmentally friendly as possible with reduce, re-use and recycling being at the heart of our nursery ethos, whether it be through using as little plastic as possible or using recycled natural product all through the nursery. You can see more about how we implement this on our Community page.

Food

Our nursery cook prepares amazing nutritious meals for the children every day on site. None of the food that we serve is processed, and sugar and salt are not added. We don’t serve puddings, rather a seasonal variety of fruit salads, smoothies and lassis. Snacks are savoury to avoid sugar sitting on the children’s teeth. Food is sourced locally where possible and from our own raised beds. See Sample Menu.

Play

We strongly believe in play based learning. We provide an environment, everyday where children can develop through play. We know each child as the individual that they are and through this we set up activities to progress their development. We do not pressurise the children, rather we provide a fun stimulating environment where a love for learning is developed.

Learning

We have many extra lessons, which the children love taking part in, from French, science, gardening club and music. We have educational visits up to Frith Farm, which is a veg box scheme which runs only a couple of field away on the farm.

Outdoor learning is fun!

Rather a proud moment when one of the chicks we hatched off at nursery went on to be crowned Best of Breed at the National Poultry Show in 2020! (virtual show due to Covid)

What a beauty he is! We can't wait to hatch off more chicks this spring🥰🐣

Following the Christmas break all of our staff tested negative for Covid-19 with a lateral flow test before their return to work.

We will be providing our staff with a lateral flow test on a regular basis.

We are all in agreement that this another step to try to keep our Molescroft Farm Families as safe as possible.

We will be staying open to all children as directed by the government in the most recent lockdown announcement.

Let’s keep things as normal and consistent for our children for as long as possible.

Thank you to our amazing nursery cook, Caroline.

That was the most delicious Christmas Dinner😋

Caroline is such a integral part of our nursery. Caroline cooks such wonderful, nutritious meals every day for our children often with food grown at nursery or from her own allotment.

Thank you again Caroline, you are the best🥰.

It has been a difficult year, there is no doubt about that but the silver lining must be the deep sense of community which has developed in this wonderful area. We all feared it would diminish as time went by and I suppose it has in some ways but in so many ways it has only got stronger.

We have really embraced this in our build up to Christmas and made our third and final delivery to the food bank from all the generous donations by our families this morning.

Our children made Christmas cards for the residents at Beverley Grange Nursing home to cheer up their Christmas time.

Today we gave out the Christmas hampers we have made up for each member of our wonderful staff with all the contents sourced from local, small businesses. All have either been suggested by our families or the products are produced by our families. Our staff have been truly incredible in such a difficult year, thank you so much to you all.
