We are a long-established, innovative yet historic Nursery School tucked away in the heart of Headington, Oxford, offering a loving start to the joy of learning for 2 ½ to 5 year olds. The Hunsdon House family ethos is rooted in its history, as it started in1922 in a family home. To this day the nursery offers each child a nurturing haven of love and guidance as they navigate the world of friendships, nature and creation. Today we are the most international Nursery School in the area, where children hear different languages from the age of 2 and learn to speak English fluently in 1 to 2 years alongside their mother-tongue.
We limit our numbers each day to a maximum of about 25 children and employ 6 caring, qualified and experienced staff with passion for seeing each child develop their full God-given potential. We are a nursery upholding traditional Christian values, and welcome children and families of all faiths or none.
Our children experience a true kindergarten, with the opportunity to play in our spacious wooded gardens, exposed to nature all year round and developing their awareness of and appreciation for their natural environment.
We surround our children with light and colour at every opportunity. Most of our toys and educational materials are made of wood.
Our children are encouraged in their innate love of and respect for the natural world. We follow a seasonal curriculum inspired by Friedrich Froebel, Maria Montessori and Rudolf Steiner.
