About Flying Start

Welcome to Flying Start Nursery and Pre-school. We are a family owned nursery (the only nursery we own) in the heart of Fairford. We have had the nursery now for twelve of its fifteen years and in that time the nursery has gone from strength to strength.

We are extremely proud of Flying Start and the people who work in it.  Our emphasis is on providing an environment where children can grow and develop, one that is comfortable and welcoming.  We're not a school, we're a home from home.   We aim to provide extremely high quality and professional care and education whilst ensuring that your child's time with us is one of happiness, contentment and that they want to spend time with us every time they come in the door.

Flying Start is truly at the heart of Fairford in every sense.  Being in the middle of town means we have instant access to and make weekly visits to the Wednesday market, the library, the duck pond, the park and we even spend time in the local residential home.  We are also lucky to have access to one of the best Forest Schools around at the Ernest Cook Trust.

We hope to see you at Flying Start!
