About Hollies Mapperley South

Hollies Mapperley South opened in April 2022. It has large, spacious rooms, giving plenty of opportunity for learning and creativity in a homely environment. Children are encouraged to follow their own interests and daily activities are flexible and child-led, enabling us to help them to achieve their next steps.  

We know that children love to play outdoors, so we spend as much time as possible in the fresh air. Whether it’s visiting one of our Forest School sites, or simply playing in the garden, we use the motto ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing”.  We have a huge garden offers plenty of space, with lots of play equipment and opportunities for young explorers to use their imagination.Our Forest School and Outdoor Play sessions take place at nursery and our local parks and nature reserves.  Forest Schools promotes the self-esteem, concentration and social skills of our children and enables them to take risks in a safe and controlled situation.  Our preschool love to take a trip out in the Hollies Bus, to spend time exploring the woods and learn new skills.

Our experienced nursery cook freshly prepares all of our food on-site. Menus are changed daily, with a wide range of healthy, balanced options and children are encouraged to try new things at mealtimes and make good choices.
