Strawberry Patch Children's Nursery

The Strawberry Patch Nursery

Nursery and PreSchool, Hempstead, Norfolk

Welcome to The Strawberry Patch Nursery website. Here you can find useful information about our nursery and staff.

The unique name for our children’s nursery was inspired from the foundations upon which it was built – an old strawberry patch. You can find us in a secluded part of a small village called ‘Hempstead’ just outside Holt.

We operate from a purpose built log style cabin building, which we extended in 2005, located on a retired family farm, where the children get first hand experiences in a safe environment.

“It is our aim to create a secure, happy and sociable environment, where children are:
Given the opportunities to learn and discover through play both indoors and outdoors
Able to make decisions and take manageable risks within all aspects of their development,
…allowing them to grow in confidence and self esteem, whilst respecting the environment and each other.”

Learning and playing

“It is our belief to work closely in partnership with parents/carers and within the Key worker role throughout the child’s time at the Nursery.

And by supporting their development through our own developing effective reflective practice.”

Both our daughters have thrived at Strawberry Patch. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, and most importantly, the staff are all so sensitive to the needs of each individual child.

The communication between the nursery and parents is excellent, and this has been so reassuring during the pandemic, with so much consideration, care and attention being given to ensure the safety of all who attend. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Strawberry Patch.”

It is such a relief finding Strawberry Patch, a place where we have no worries or concerns leaving our son. Our son loves going and he runs in with a massive smile every time.

We love the variety of activities and the amount of time and space outside. He has developed so much since being at Strawberry Patch. All the ladies are so kind, caring and brilliant – with all the updates and photos on Tapestry, we know our youngest son will love it too.
