About Our Nursery

Pumpkins Nursery Badminton is a 36 place nursery/pre-school setting located in the heart of Badminton village, home of the world renowned Badminton Horse Trials. Open 50 weeks of the year 8am – 6pm, we offer care and early years education to children aged 12 months to 5 years. We have two playrooms; one for toddlers aged up to two and a half years and a pre-school room for those aged 2 and a half to 5 years.

In our dedicated garden area your child will enjoy exploring wildlife, cooking in the mud kitchen, performing on the decked stage area and digging for treasure in the huge sandpit.

With trips to the neighbouring farm and walks around the picturesque village, the outdoors is an important part of the nursery experience at Badminton. Forest School is run in the woods opposite the nursery for children aged 3 years and over and physical activity sessions take place in the main Hall on a Wednesday morning.
