Southfields Pre-school & Childcare is a rural nursery provision. It opened in 1999 and operates from a converted barn in the grounds of Old Hall Farm in Car Colston, Nottinghamshire NG13 8JG.

The group is divided into two playrooms, one serving the Baby Bumbles 6 months to 2 yrs and one for Busy Bees 2-5 yr olds offering Activities such as a creative, cooking, woodwork, painting, exploring diverse media such as shaving foam or jelly! The carpeted room is for the home corner, book corner, construction, studying with magnifying glasses or magnets.

Bathroom facilities are sited between the two rooms. Our Kitchen serves hot lunches made on site. Two outdoor play areas; one which includes a large grassed, walled garden containing our climbing frames, sandpit and MUD KITCHEN; the second, a hard surface area for ride-on. There is an astroturf area adjoining the classrooms for free-flow play.

We are surrounded by open fields which we use to the benefit of our Outdoor Learning Classroom sessions every day. Parent parking off-road area.

We have offered weekly 'WOODLAND SESSIONS' since 2003 in an adjacent field's spinney.

We have run YOGA since 2004 with a qualified teacher on Wednesdays. We collect from Orston, Flintham & E Bridgford schools for 'out-of-school' or holiday clubs for up to 8yr olds.

We NOW offer an all daycare from 6 months up to 5 yr olds from 7:45 am to 6 pm 50 weeks per year. Our long established pre-school - part or full day sessions 9 am to 3 pm (with a lunch club or not).

Please come and visit our wonderful setting where the children gain life experiences with an emphasis on the OUTDOORS under the supervision of our graduate-led staff.

Spaces available.


Each week a whole session is spent in the Spinney or the fields around our setting. We spend approximatley 2.5 hours learning about the seasons, discovering our abilities to climb,build dig etc., working as a team and having FUN in the OUTDOORS whatever the weather!
We love digging and building in our Sandpit
playing together we learn social skills - sharing and taking turns, co-operation and working as a team.

Great childcare setting.

Very surprised at poor review as we have found this to be a brilliant setting for our child. Wholeheartedly recommend Southfields - home cooked food, outdoors area is great and the staff are lovely. Never any concerns.

Not recommended.

Poor quality support and lack of understanding on child's needs and development. Very disappointed with support. Safety concern led to withdrawal.

This is a fantastic nursery

We looked around at several childcare providers - and found that Mandy's team at Southfields offered the us best potential environment for our children.

Great, warm and a truly caring atmosphere.
Lovely location surrounded by fields and lots of fresh air. This is a special place. I would recommend you to have a look for yourself.
If there was a 6th star rating here I would give it!
