West Lodge Day Nursery

Welcome to West Lodge Day Nursery. We are set within the grounds of West Lodge Rural Centre which is an open farm situated on the outskirts of Desborough, Northamptonshire.

The setting provides a combination of full and part time childcare between the hours of 7.30am until 6pm, Monday to Friday with the exception of bank holidays and the period between Christmas and the New Year. We also offer fully funded sessional childcare for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. This can be accessed on either a term time or a full time basis, please feel free to get in touch for more information on how to access your funding with us. All children attending the nursery have secure, supervised access to the farm park and all paying families receive an annual family pass to be able to enjoy the farm park too.
