We care for children aged from 3 months to 5 years of age and our premises have been specifically converted into 5 separate units to take into account the various age groups attending the nursery.

There are a number of safe and secure outdoor play areas with a range of toys and outside equipment availble for the children to play with.















Archway Nursery is located within a beautiful 237 acre site on the Cranborne chase, only ¾ of a mile from the by-pass and close to the town of Blandford Forum.


The nursery is owned and run by Mrs Sandra Slater and managed by Liz Hennicker. We also have on average 27 full time nursery assistants who have all undergone strict recruiting procedures including DBS checks and are qualified and experienced in childcare.



We are registered and inspected regularily by OFSTED. A copy of our most recent OFSTED report can be found by clicking on the image below.
