Kids Country Day Nursery & Petting, Over Peover Outstanding Childcare For Knutsford And The Surrounding Areas

Our outdoor space is truly exceptional. All age from little explorers all the way up to pre school pioneers have their own outdoor, age-appropriate area, adjacent to their indoor playrooms. Not only that, they also share a vast play space that really lets them roam. With space to run, trees to climb, bugs to hunt, vegetables to grow, animals to care for, worms to dig form and an endless amount of nature to explore all our children enjoy the many benefits of Cheshire’s fresh, country air!

The benefits of outdoor play are endless. Not only are there countless learning opportunities but outdoor play also promotes a healthy lifestyle and encourages children to care for the natural environment.

Our ‘Outdoor Classroom’ encourages progress across all areas of learning and development during the Early Years Foundation Stage, while our equipment is of the highest quality and accessible for appropriate ages and stages of development.

We also boast a large green space that houses a giant sand pit where the children can dig to their heart’s content, a mud kitchen for the ‘baking’ of pies and the creation of all sorts of potions and concoctions, a gardening corner featuring a fairy garden and vegetable patch where the kids can grow their own, a story circle under the trees, and a bug hunting and mini beast area with a ‘bug hotel’. As if all of that wasn’t enough we also have a small petting zoo to house our animal friends, including a pony paddock, chicken coop, and rabbit run.

We pride ourselves on our outdoor ethos and all children at our day nursery enjoy outdoor play every day, come rain or shine! We also have weekly Forest School sessions for our to our grand voyagers and pre school pioneers. This is something that we will soon be delivering across the whole nursery!

Meet The Menagerie…

One of our favourite parts of our day nursery is the onsite menagerie making up an informal petting zoo for the children to enjoy. From Freddie the pony, to several smaller friends, some interesting gastropods, and a gaggle of visiting local animals, there’s always plenty for the children to play with and care for…

Freddie
The Pony

Freddie the pony is well and truly a part of the Kids’ Country Team. Freddie’s happy, sociable personality fits in well with the inclusive ethos at our nursery. The children love to help him take care of himself by brushing and washing his coat. They also regularly help him with his favourite time of the day, meal time! Carrots, grass, hey, straw you name it, he likes it!

Disco And Snowball The Bunnies

Disco and Snowball are our fury little friends at the nursery. Every day they bring a smile to our faces when we see them hopping around our large outdoor area in the fresh country air. Being their little carers means we must help to feed them, give them water, clean their hutch and of course play with them on the large grass area at the nursery.

Bertie, Betsie And Bonnie The Giant Snails

Here at Kids’ Country we have Bertie, Betsie and Bonnie, our very our nursery snails! It is such great fun having them live with us at the nursery. We learn how they are to be looked after, whilst watching them grow and even sometimes have babies!
