  • 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 Farm nursery really is a unique place and I have no regrets about choosing it for both my sons. My youngest is still there. He started back in August 2015 and is wonderfully happy there. He is full of energy and loves being outside so it is the perfect option. They spend lots of time outside exploring the woodland, feeding Solo the horse, walking Jasper the dog, ‘helping’ with the vegetable garden! The staff are wonderfully engaging and clearly have a passion for working with children. I never worry about him when he’s there and he always comes home tired but happy.

  • 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

  • Our daughter has had the most amazing time at Portfield Farm and I can’t recommend it highly enough! From our very first visit we felt it was a magical place- indoors it’s a cosy home from home and outside the children are able to explore and play in amazing garden, woods and field (and probably the largest sandpit we have ever come across!). The children benefit so much from loads of time outdoors- feeding and brushing Solo the horse and taking Jasper the puppy for walks, taking care of their garden and vegetable patch (many times our daughter brought home delights such as fresh herbs or potatoes for us to enjoy too!), going on ‘bug hunts’, making acorn necklaces and mud sculptures, jumping in leaves..and generally having a great time in the fresh air. Mandy and the rest of the staff at Portfield Farm have been absolutely wonderful and we always felt our daughter was in very safe hands. We are now looking forward to our youngest daughter joining the Portfield Farm family this Summer term and experiencing the magic too:)

  • Our daughter was very happy at Portfield Farm from September 2016 to July 2017. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who has a child that loves being outdoors surrounded by nature! It is set in a lovely home with a great outdoor area with excellent play equipment including a playhouse and sand pit. The surroundings are safe and secure and it has a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff. It is surrounded by beautiful fields with a lovely forest and wooded area to inspire interest in and respect for nature. Our daughter loved the resident horse, dog and cat and learnt how to care for and respect animals. There are lots of outdoor activity opportunities with space to run around. Our daughter enjoyed den building in the forest and planting, caring for and picking vegetables, which were then used in the children’s meals. We loved that our daughter learnt about caring for the environment, healthy food choices and developing a good relationship with food. Indoors there are lots of opportunities to inspire creativity and encourage role play. Our daughter loved creating her own stories, which were made into books and working with arts and crafts. She often brought home a beautifully made piece of art work! On the academic side she regularly practised reading and writing letters and numbers and began learning phonics, which has been excellent preparation for school. Overall our daughter has had a happy time at Portfield Farm and has had many many positive experiences that have helped her to develop as a whole person and prepare her for her school start this year both academically and socially. Thank you so much Mandy and team! We look forward to visiting you soon!
