Nursery schools are usually a more relaxed learning environment and more flexible enrollment terms. They are also cheaper and vary greatly.

Honeybuns Nursery Telford

17 Whitchurch Rd, Wellington, Telford TF1 3DS, UK – 01952 246002

We had to make the difficult decision to move our 1 year old from another nursery after we've learnt how poor quality of care was at this 'outstanding' facility. We chose Honeybuns and I can't even describe how wonderful all the staff have been. It was so difficult to trust someone again to look after our child but staff made the whole process so much easier. I honestly can't thank them enough for all their compassion and support. Our little one now adores her key worker and I can't believe how much confidence she's gained! Thank you!!!

one of the best schools I went to, the teachers were all great and allow the kids that attend a big sense of freedom, definitely recommend this school, it is amazing. they are straight to the point, and will tell you how it is, and do not tolerate bullies whatsoever.

I like the school a lot, but i would like to see more sport going on, like rugby, football, and other sports you may choose to do with your students. But overall a decent school. P.S. I like cheese with my bread sticks dipped in syrup.

Today, with my business Immersive Theatres, I delivered a 7m digital planetarium experience to 45 Year 8, 9 & 10 students at Thomas Telford School. I was warmly welcomed by the staff and the special event was well-organised with all students arriving on time. The intrigued but well-behaved students enjoyed a full range of 360° experiences - including the classification of stars, climate change, molecular biology, electron microscopy and nanotech medicine. Thank you Thomas Telford School for a very pleasant visit.
