(Opening Times 07.15 -18.00 )

Hi my name is Jo and I am one of the proud owners of Fairlands Day Nursery.

I have lived in the Wickham area for most of my life and now live close by in Botley. 

I have worked at Fairlands for 19 years and was lucky enough, in 2008 to become Manager/Owner alongside my business partner Carol. 

Fairlands Day Nursery is a rural setting located in Shedfield between the villages of Botley and Wickham. Since 2008 we have enhanced our beautiful outdoor areas with a giant sandpit, bark pit, den area, mud kitchen and vegetable garden. Our indoor areas are divided into 3 departments; the Baby Department, Lower Nursery and Pre-school. We also have a sensory room and sleep room.

Each of these areas is tailored to meet your child's individual needs, ensuring they grow in confidence in a friendly and warm environment. 

We have traditional values, an emphasis on good manners, and are dedicated to producing the best outcomes for your child. We pride ourselves on our family orientated approach, as we aim to create a home from home environment. We have close links with the communities of both Shedfield and Wickham, and are lucky enough to have the church on our doorstep.

We follow the Early Years Foundation stage cirriculum, focusing on 7 areas of development: Personal, social and emotional development Communication and language Physical development Mathematics Literacy Understanding the world Expressive arts and design.

We offer nursery education for children aged 9 months - 5 years and provide 15 hours free nursery education per week (up to 570 hours per year) for every child (from the term after which they are 3 up to compulsory school age).

We also offer 30 hours free nursery education for those 3-4 year old children who are elegible.

2 year old funding is also available. 

We received a 'Good' OFSTED in all areas in 2015. Our report is available to read here
