The Ark Nursery: About us

  • The Ark Nursery is a childcare service you can rely on

    Situated in Pontesbury, approximately 8 miles southwest of Shrewsbury, the Ark Nursery are committed to providing the highest quality childcare which ensures your child’s wellbeing and happiness is paramount.

  • Full Private Day Care

    We offer a full daycare service for 0 – 5-year-olds, and continue this service through to the early years at school, providing continuity and familiarity for both children and their parents.   This allows for routines to remain the same for the children while being convenient for working parents.

  • Safe, Stimulating and fun facilities

    We have three specially designed rooms to promote and encourage all aspects of children’s development. As children grow, they move between our baby, toddler and preschool rooms, each of which are age-appropriate and provides a new environment to learn and explore. The nursery also has access to three outdoor garden areas so children can enjoy lots of fresh air and have fun with the natural world.

  • Extra Activities to Enjoy

    Included within the daily rate are lots of extra fun and varied activities for the children to enjoy. Including Forest school, Makaton, short walks around the village, yoga, visits to the local primary school, music & movement sessions and cooking and baking.

  • Dedicated Staff

    All Ark team members are experienced and highly qualified early years practitioners. Chosen for their caring and compassionate nature, our team are committed to providing outstanding quality childcare in a happy, friendly and stimulating environment.
