It was named after the adjacent Bushy Leaze Wood. In 1996 the nursery moved to its present site in the town and became a Hampshire County Council maintained nursery school. At the same time it became fully inclusive, offering half the places to mainstream children from the local community and half to children with Special Educational Needs. In 2008 there was extensive building work in order to incorporate a Surestart Children’s Centre on site. A further multipurpose room was added in 2011 to extend the range of activities we could offer.
We are very proud of our place at the heart of our community. Everything we do is with children and families in mind. We are always looking for opportunities to develop further and work to respond to the needs of the community. We welcome families and professionals to visit our Centre and see for themselves what we do.
