Anna and Maureen Owners of New Moon Nursery 1

New Moon Nursery is a family run nursery privately owned by mother and daughter Maureen Ward and Anna Friend. Maureen is an Early Years Teacher with over 16 years experience. Anna is a Speech and Language Therapist specialising in Pre-5 children. We are both mummies and understand the difficulties of balancing work and a family.


Our nursery is a small setting, set in a beautiful detached house, with fantastic outdoor learning environment. Our Ethos has always been to provide a homely childcare experience, where staff are caring and nurturing towards all our children.


The number of children is limited, purposefully in order to maintain a family, home from home atmosphere where all the practitioners and children know each other, making settling in and transitions an enjoyable process.  This is an important part of the experience we wish to provide our families. 


Learning through high quality play and interaction is of high importance. We understand that the Early years are the most important years of a child’s life and the experiences children have during these years shape their future.


That is why we have developed our nursery to ensure that when your child is not with you they are in a place that aims to support you in giving them the best start in their Early Years.

Our Aims...


  • To provide a stimulating home based learning environment where all children will feel safe, happy and secure.
  • To work in partnership with parents to enhance children’s learning and development.
  • To provide high quality experiences to develop children’s social, emotional and cognitive development.
  • To give every child a ‘firm foundation’ to enable them to progress to the next ‘step’ of their learning and development.
  • To provide an interactive, language rich environment to enable children to become skilful communicators.
