Visit Us and Open Events


Our Nursery is open from 08:00 to 18:00, Monday to Fridays, for 48 weeks of the year. The self-contained Early Years Department sits within our 130 acres of grounds and woods which the children love to explore. 

Behind a joyful atmosphere conceals a meticulous approach to the academic development and personal wellbeing of every child, with a careful balance of structured learning and child-initiated play. From the day a child joins us, we help prepare them for school, ensuring our Nursery children are Reception ready with reading, writing, phonics and Mathematics above age-related expectations. And with Reception class just next door, the transition to school couldn’t be smoother.

“Such a wonderful and enjoyable start to education. Our daughter has loved nursery and we have loved watching her grow and learn at Embley.”

One such place is our newly developed Woodland Library, which we’re putting the finishing touches to before it is officially opened.
