All about Avon Heath.

The Nature Nursery at Avon Heath, opened in August 2012, was our very first. It was also the first nursery in the country situated on a Country Park and partnered directly with the Rangers. Its first Ofsted inspection was awarded Outstanding in all areas in January 2013.

Avon Heath Country Park contains 600 acres of protected heathland, one of the rarest habitats in Europe. Many of the animals here are protected species and can't be found anywhere else on Earth. As a result, this heathland has SSSI (site of specific scientific interest) status.

The country park is beautifully maintained by the Countryside Rangers, who work with children and teachers of the Nature Nursery for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon during ‘Explorer Sessions’.
