Kinson Nursery School

Muddy Boots Kinson

Educating little minds, Nurturing little hearts

Muddy Boots Kinson is located within the grounds at Kinson Academy in Bournemouth. They are open Monday to Friday 8am-6pm all year round, catering for babies, two, three and four year olds. The nursery building is separate from the school and runs independently, following the same vision that the other Muddy Boots follow. We have high aspirations for all children and they will leave us having built strong attachments, having good language and communication skills, eating a well balanced nutritious diet, having a love for play, and a strong connection to nature. 

Ofsted said “the curriculum is broad and ambitious for all children. Staff organise activities and experiences to meet children’s individual needs and nurture their curiosity”.
