Welcome to BEST (Bedfordshire East Schools Trust) Nursery

school1BEST Nursery is a friendly pre-school and day-care setting positioned in a semi-rural location in the grounds of Samuel Whitbread Academy. The nursery was established in 1989, originally as a ‘crèche’ for the children of college staff, but quickly established itself as a valuable community facility. In 2011 the decision was taken for the management of the nursery, originally named Samuel Whitbread Nursery, to transfer to Bedfordshire East Schools Trust (BEST) and it was considered appropriate for the name of the nursery to change accordingly.

The superb award winning buildings (LABC Excellence Awards 2011) that are home to the nursery were completed in Spring 2011. The design, layout and facilities are all bespoke to the nurseries particular needs and wishes and were designed primarily for children in order that the children’s physical and environmental needs were not only met but exceeded. The building also benefits from the highest specification with regard to ‘green’ credentials, with systems such as a rainwater harvester, and holds the best Energy Performance Rating of any building in this county and possibly the country.

We offer a safe, caring and stimulating environment and a first class early years education for children from 4 months to 5 years old during term time and from 4 months – 12 years of age during the school holidays. We have a bespoke enclosed play area where we strive to reflect all learning areas. We also have access to the college playing field for activities such as nature walks. Children flourish within this environment which has a proven history of quality care and education. The Early Years Foundation Stage (2008) provides the framework by which the children’s development is assessed and further development is planned.
