Penton Mewsey is a small village located on the outskirts of Andover in Hampshire. This location was chosen for its ability to offer a wonderfully peaceful setting, whilst still being able to provide quick and easy access to surrounding towns and villages and the main road routes such as the A303.
The nursery is within easy reach of the main towns of Andover, Tidworth, Whitchurch, Ludgershall and all of the villages in between.
We are located within the grounds of Penton Lodge, a large Country House that dates back to the early 19th Century. We occupy what would have been the Coach House and stable buildings which provide a wealth of history and character. We have an amazing new all-weather outdoor classroom that was opened in the Spring of 2014, two other garden areas and our own fantastic woodland area that the children love exploring!
All our staff have undertaken training in Early Years and first aid. Many of the staffing team have worked in childcare for several years and have vast experience and knowledge of the profession. Those staff members who join us without qualifications are supported through the training process. Our setting provides an environment where children are nurtured and cared for, helping them achieve their full potential.
Suzie Richardson, our Penton Mewsey site manager, has worked in childcare for 28 years and has been part of The Avenue team since 2014.
All meals and snacks during the day are provided from our on-site kitchen.
