Welcome

Hillside Playcare is a newly opened nursery located within the small village of Little Waltham in Chelmford. The nursery operates from the School Room within the United Reformed Church.

We offer care for children aged 2 to 5 years and are open daily from 8.30am to 3.30pm during term time. The nursery is equiped with a range of exciting resources, allowing the children to lead their own play through exploration. We have our own private garden where the children can extend their learning to outside.

The year before children start school they are invited to join ‘The Hillside Barn’ sessions. These sessions operate from The Barn behind St Martin’s Church and offer a range of learning opportunities to prepare them for their next journey to big school. We take full advantage of our beautiful village surroundings through our exciting exploratory walks.
