West Buckland Nursery has an ideal setting. It is located on the West Buckland School campus which occupies a 98 acre site right on the edge of Exmoor. There is every opportunity for children to explore different outdoor areas and habitats, and to enjoy the wide range of facilities on offer.

Nursery children have access to a lovely, soft-surfaced, extensive, outside covered area which gives them opportunity to play with sand, water and larger equipment whatever the weather. There is also an enclosed Nursery garden with a play house, sandpit and outdoor play equipment. In addition to these two areas, we have a very large playground and grassed area which is shared with Reception and Key Stage 1 children at playtimes. It has three Wendy houses, a large sand pit, a slide, colourful blackboards and a wide variety of both large and small play equipment to give the children plenty of scope to enjoy themselves, exercise and play.

The Prep School has its own adventure playground which provides children with plenty of recreation and fun. It has a rubberised surface for safety and boasts monkey bars, bridges, balance bars and ladders.

The outdoor provision allows children opportunities to explore, play and learn within an extensive, beautiful but secure area.
