About Us

Our Nursery is open from 7:30am until 6:00pm Monday to Friday. Children join us when they are three, or nearly three, and quite frankly, never look back!

Our setting has to be seen to be believed. A private drive through glorious grounds leads to the 16th century Barlborough Hall. It is a wondrous place for children, where imagination runs wild and learning is a daily exciting discovery. Our Nursery is full of happy children who flourish in the inspiring, caring environment where learning and play are interwoven.

In November 2018, Barlborough Hall School was named 'Best Independent Prep School in Derbyshire' by the Sunday Times.


We provide a flexible service to suit your family’s needs and routine. From a minimum of four sessions (morning and/or afternoon) per week to full time, the choice is yours, subject to availability.

It is recommended that children attend nursery full time as they prepare to start school to allow for a smooth transition and minimise upheaval. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to check availability. 

 All three to four-year-olds in England are entitled to 15 hours free childcare for 38 weeks of the year. The funding comes into force at the beginning of the term after their third birthday. Click here for more information.
