The Forum Nursery is part of the Midcounties Co-operative, which owns and operates The Co-operative Childcare, with nurseries nationwide.

The nursery has a dedicated staff who help our children to have the best start in life by providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We have four age specific rooms covering four age ranges:

  • Ladybirds  ~  3 months to 18 months
  • Caterpillars ~ 18 months to 2 years
  • Butterflies  ~  2 years to 3 years
  • Dragonflies ~  3 years to 5 years

A purpose built nursery within the Forum Centre; we offer a light and airy environment with good quality furniture and fittings inside and exciting outdoor areas for children to explore. Opening hours are designed to suit parents who are returning to work or training and we offer sessional care if you simply wish to give your child the exciting and stimulating experience of socialising, experimenting and learning new things with other pre-school children.


The nursery is open between the hours of 8am to 6pm. Choose from sessions for the morning, afternoon or for a full day during these hours:

  • Morning    ~ 8am to 1pm
  • Afternoon  ~ 1pm to 6pm
  • Full day    ~ 8am to 6pm

Children enjoy exciting and nutritious menus for breakfast, lunch and tea and we also provide healthy snack and drinks during the day.

We would be pleased to welcome you to our nursery to look around and ask any questions you may have our pre-school care or concerns about how your child might settle in.

Please contact Paul or Lauren to arrange an appointment.
