About Us

Adventure Valley Day Nursery & Pre-School is all about giving your child the very best early years education within a countryside environment.

Working in partnership with leading childcare provider Farm Day Nurseries, children will enjoy a brand new Nursery and Pre-School building, with private Nursery gardens and daily supervised visits to Adventure Valley.

Meet Our Nursery Manager

Hello, my name is Julie Norton and I am the Nursery Manager at Adventure Valley Day Nursery & Pre-School. I have worked in childcare for almost 20 years, and hold a BA Hons in Early Childhood Studies and a NNEB Diploma in Childcare.

I take pride in building those early relationships with both children and parents and love to see children at my nursery grow and devlop each day.

Being the Nursery Manager at this fantastic new setting brings me a lot of joy, seeing children learn through nature-based play including taking daily visits to the farmyard animals is a very unique experience for all.
