Based in Bicester Oxfordshire the nursery name Fundamentals, is new, although the nursery has been operating for over 28 years. It has recently been refurbished to a very high standard and continues to offer a warm, intimate, and caring environment in which your child will thrive.

We are proud of our family teaching approach which enables children of all ages to learn from and support each other, gently helping them to become aware of their place in the world and the wealth of exciting things to learn. We provide a challenging learning environment in which children are encouraged to explore, make decisions and be creative. Children are always treated with dignity, respect, love and understanding of their own and others spiritual and cultural beliefs, helping to break down boundaries and stereotypes.

Whilst we are still new, we welcome families to come and pay us a visit to see for yourself the wonderful start your child will receive at Fundamentals. We would be pleased to discuss personally any requirements for your child or alternatively contact us below.

We offer care from 6 months to school age and our long serving staff members are all diploma qualified to level 3 or above. The team’s wealth of experience and diversity strongly supports thesuccessful delivery of Fundamentals ethos.
