Welcome to Our Nursery!

James Farm Day Nursery opened in September 2009 after successfully running as “The Little Cottage Day Nursery” for 12 years, also in Hartley Wintney. We cater for children from 3 months to 4 years 11 months and are lucky to be set in a tranquil, beautiful rural setting and are proud to offer a spacious, secure and stimulating environment to ensure your child’s experience with us is rewarding.


We have worked hard so that you can be certain the service we offer is the best available in the area. You can expect premium equipment, fully qualified staff and impressive child to adult ratios.

We aim to promote a family feel to our nursery and for our midday dinner we all sit down and eat together in our dining room.

Our meals are all freshly cooked and delivered by award winning “Slice of Pie”. Who offer a well-balanced exciting food to our children using seasonal and organic ingredients wherever possible.

Our menus are on a 4 week rolling seasonal menu. Catering for ethnic and dietary requirements.

Our aim is expand upon not only the type of foods that the children eat within the nursery but also by encouraging the parents to ado pt similar food principles.

We strongly believe that introducing a wide range of locally produced or organic ingredients and tastes at an early stage perfectly lays down the foundation for a lifelong love of healthy food and varied tastes.
