About the employer

Our Winchester nursery and preschool is based onsite at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital. Fun, laughter and learning, our aim is to make your child’s time at nursery as fun and as positive as possible. We believe that children learn best when they feel safe and secure with familiar people and the key person bond is a big part of how we work. The nursery is built on a hill in Romsey Road and therefore has entrances from street level onto both floors. The garden accommodates a good range of climbing, balancing and sliding equipment, sand pit, and planting areas and the children are also able to access various attractive outside areas in the hospital grounds as well.
