Poppies Old Windsor opened its doors in July 2014, it is situated in the heart of the village in a brand new purpose built nursery, which provides care for 70 children daily. It has the additional benefit of ample car parking to the front and a fantastic garden for the children to the rear.
The children at Poppies enjoy a large garden area that has an all weather surface, enabling them to have fun outdoors whatever the season. The sunken sandpit is ever popular, along with the climbing frame and many sit and ride toys.
The Baby Nest enjoy having access to their secluded garden directly from their room and enjoy playing safely with their toys and equipment whilst still feeling part of the larger Poppies family.

‘We are very lucky to have such an amazing nursery with such lovely staff here in our village.’
