The nursery has been ‘home from home’ to her & you have all been her extended family...”

Munns Farm Day Nursery, Cole Green near Hertford: Convenient for Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield

Our family run nursery has been established to provide a fun, stimulating, safe, happy and rewarding environment for babies and children. Since opening we have built a reputation as a leading nursery within the area, and this has been acknowledged with the Ofsted Outstanding accreditation in 2011.

We are open all year round, from 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday; only closing for Christmas week and bank holidays.

Munns Farm is located in a purpose-built barn conversion and converted stable block. We are situated in a superb rural location which forms part of the Hatfield House Estate, and we are easily reached from the A414. Well equipped and modern rooms each have their own gardens, and the attractive countryside is a beautiful backdrop against which the children play freely and securely to develop their senses and imagination.

The Barn and The Old Stables have separate rooms, which cater for individual age groups where the children enjoy the company of their friends and carers.

We invest in the most up-to-date resources, recruitment of quality employees and staff training. Together with our family-run ethos, we aim to promote development and learning through enjoyment and fun.

Don’t just take our word for it; we have books full of letters and cards from delighted parents whose children have stayed with us over the years. Here’s one example (and others can be read on each page of this website):

A note from one of the parents:

“Jessica genuinely loved coming to school every day with everyone working endlessly to bring the very best out of her. We really feel that it was the perfect grounding for her both socially and educationally.”

According to the latest Ofsted report:

  • The well-established key person system enables children to display strong bonds and attachments to the staff. This promotes their feelings of safety and emotional well-being.
  • Children settle quickly into the nursery and smoothly move between rooms when they are ready. They show high levels of independence and confidence.
  • Parents say they have a high regard for the nursery. They are fully included and consulted about all aspects of the nursery and their child's progression and learning.
  • Staff effectively promote children's language through conversation, sign language and pictorial clues. This enables children to develop their language and communication at expected levels for their age.
