Hungry Caterpillar Day Nurseries are thrilled to announce plans for a new nursery in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire are on track. Having just received confirmation of planning permission for change of use, renovations are underway. The new nursery will be housed in a lovely character building set in the heart of the village. Previously a public house, The Chalfont Phoenix, the plan is to completely renovate the inside and outside and transform it into a fantastic nursery for local families. The nursery will cater for around 65 children from babies through to school age and will also offer a range of parenting classes for families attending and the wider community.
Hungry Caterpillar’s Chalfont onsite chef will be cooking nutritious meals for the children using locally sourced produce. Chalfont will also see the launch of ‘Caterpillar Parent Services’ which will enable busy working parents to use the nursery as a one stop shop for emergency supplies, dry cleaning and local errands. More will be revealed but essentially the aim is to ensure local business’s benefit from the nursery and parent’s lives are made easier.
The nursery will run regular forest school sessions for the children taking full advantage of their wonderful garden area and local green belt. Children will also have the opportunity to access weekly Yoga sessions, French classes and music sessions.
Oliva Foley, the founder and Director of Hungry Caterpillars said “ We are so excited about our new nursery in Chalfont St Peter, the Phoenix has been empty for nearly four years so it will be great to see it brought back to life again. This nursery is particularly close to my heart as Chalfont is also my home and where children have grown up and gone to school. We intend to make Chalfont our flagship nursery and create a real home from home environment for the children. We are working with a fantastic architect whose ideas are going to transform the building. I’m delighted to be able to finally be able to offer our services to the families of Chalfont”
