" The contribution of the early years provision to the well-being of children is outstanding." - Ofsted
Not only are we graded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted in every area of the care and learning requirements, but we are also the only Day Nursery in the area to be awarded the Millie’s Mark accreditation - a gold standard award for paediatric first aid.
The Wendy House, Impington, Cambridge is situated at Fieldstead Farm in Impington. This is a totally unique setting with unrivalled open space and natural resources. The building itself is a converted barn which has been lovingly restored into a stunning space for children. The Nursery is situated just a few minutes from the A14 and A10 (J32/J33) between Cambridge and Ely in the village of Impington, so is perfectly located for many commuter routes.
A child's surroundings are important to them which is why both our Nurseries are set in lovely rural locations, surrounded by open fields, yet both easily accessible to main commuter routes. We took time searching for our premises and are confident that we have got it right. Both buildings are bright and airy with wonderful views overlooking open fields and feel homely and inviting.
Many things set The Wendy House apart from other local settings and we are proud to be unique. We have our very own Forest School, affectionately known as 'Wendy Wood', an amazing woodland camp just a few minutes from the Nursery building where children can climb, explore and learn about their surroundings and enjoy homemade soup around the campfire! Further to this, we also have an amazing Conservation Cabin – an outdoor classroom that all the children, regardless of age, can use to focus their activities on conservation and the natural environment. A truly wonderful area to develop our passion for outdoor learning.
The success and excellent reputation the Nursery enjoys is very much based on their attention to detail, individual care and their emphasis on outdoor learning. This philosophy also enables the Nursery to build strong relationships with parents - a key factor in the Nursery's overall package of care. They know that to be able to ensure a child's individual needs are being met, working with, and listening to, parents is vital. They welcome comments and feedback and their parent emailing system ensures that the Nursery keeps an on-going stream of information and open dialogue.
