Welcome to the home of Portfield Farm Nursery & Forest School
At Portfield Farm Nursery & Forest School we believe that ‘your childhood is your own to enjoy to the fullest extent possible’ and that your earliest learning experiences, loving bonds and golden memories may influence your learning and later life.
We are a small group of fun-loving, outdoorsy children (birth – 5 yrs) who love to explore and learn as much as possible outdoors in our lovely forest school with our pets and wildlife. We spend our days happily playing in the sunshine whilst we learn OFSTED’s EYFS, grow our own vegetables, walk our puppy and look after our horse.
Our babies receive lots of love and attention as we guarantee a 1:3 ratio of dedicated staff.
We are a small group of fun-loving outdoorsy children progressing happily through OFSTED’s Early Years Foundation Stage, whilst enjoying life experiences and child-led play with adult support. Located in tranquil rural surroundings, children also enjoy gardening and Forest School activities.

Gorgeous setting. Excellent staff. Very happy children!!
So sad that my LO had last day here today. What an amazing 15months he has had. Thanks to all the staff, home from home comfort while learning xx
Being the neurotic mother to my first born, choosing the right nursery was an absolute must! Portfield and the staff were welcoming, informative and so supportive as I found it hard to leave! My son absolutely loves it and I get ushered out the door after saying goodbye! Can’t recommend enough 🙂
Portfield and the staff are just incredible!!!! So warm, nurturing and educational – all in one… A true hidden gem!! We absolutely love it there, could not be happier! The animals, outdoor ethos, veg garden, sandpit etc etc is absolute heaven! My LO is just thriving there and is happy happy happy … What more is there to say really?! Just idyllic. Thank you so so so much to the Portfield family xxx
Lovely place with great attention paid to each child due to small group setting. The natural surroundings make it a very unique nursery, great for inquisitive minds and adventurous little ones! The variety of the activities experienced each day was fantastic! X
