Otterbourne is the largest of the Yellow Dot Nurseries and is situated at the top of Otterbourne Hill close to M3 junction 12. We are very fortunate to have such a beautiful building which provides a wonderful space and great source of natural light in every room. There is a large garden area, which houses an external classroom, a woodland walk area, climbing equipment, mud kitchen, tractor tyres, a variety of trees and funky mirrors!

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

  • I just wanted to say thank you to all the lovely girls in Transition...every time he is dropped off they have been so great, engaging him in something that they know he enjoys or distracting him with diggers and dinosaurs!! It's been really helpful for me and I just wanted to thank them all for their kindness!
