Jennie, Manager Yellow Dot Nursery Ampfield

Hi my name is Jennie, the Manager of this lovely rural Nursery.
My entire career has been spent in early years and I've specialised in supporting children and families with additional needs. I've managed Nurseries since 2007 and I'm especially happy to be here at Ampfield because of my love of the outdoors. I'm a mother of 3 grownup boys and a proud Grandma!
We are very fortunate to have our own onsite Nature Nursery in the woods behind the Nursery, which all the Ampfield children explore. The bog is very popular so wellies are a must! If your child loves the freedom of the outdoors, then please do come and meet us.

Our activities are founded on the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on:

We believe children and adults learn from each other and enrich each others lives. The Nursery is divided into four areas:

Opening times

Monday to Friday, 8:00am - 6:00pm

Earlybird 7:45am by arrangement
(Sessions 8:00am - 1:00pm / 1:00pm - 6:00pm)

Children may attend on either a full time or part time basis
The Nursery is open 51 weeks a year


We accept Childcare Vouchers and Early Years Education Funding
