Our Curriculum

Our curriculum evolves to meet the ever changing needs of the children in our care. Practitioners apply knowledge and experience to create an environment that focuses on child-initiated learning with carefully interwoven adult-led activities that are appropriate and relevant for individuals providing plenty of opportunity for your little one to improve his/her social skills.

Learning through Confidence | Courage | Curiosity 

Old Basing Village Nursery School is a family-run, Ofsted registered early years setting, catering for preschool children aged from 6 months to 5 years. We pride ourselves on providing a ‘home from home’ setting where exploration, discovery, and talent are nurtured and developed through inspired, dedicated, and passionate teaching.

Our Age Groups



6 months - 2 years

Providing a safe and creative environment for our littlest ones to blossom as they explore, question, and discover the world around them.


Owlets & Little Owls

2 - 4 years

A mix of play, arts, life tasks and sensory exploration fosters language development and a sense of independence for our little ones.



4- 5 years

Encouraging confidence, problem-solving skills, and creativity as we guide our fledglings in their transition to the next chapter of their education.


A Calm and Purposeful Environment

Our dedicated team of experienced qualified teachers and early years practitioners are committed to providing a stimulating environment where children can learn through play. We have evolved and developed an 'In the moment' approach to observing and interacting with the children based on their interests and individual developmental stages.

What Our Parents Say
Both my children have attended wonderful OBVNS and we couldn't be happier with the setting. We love the child-led environment, outdoor space and the additional activities they get to partake in. Both children have absolutely thrived under their care and enjoy(ed) going. You can absolutely tell how much the children are cared for by everyone. I highly recommend it.
