About Hollies Arnold

Nestled on the edge of Bestwood Country Park in Nottingham and close to the site of our Forest School, Hollies Arnold opened its doors in 1995, after considerable alterations as this building was the Army Naf. Hollies Arnold is located on one floor, making it easily accessible and an ideal fit with our ethos of free flow each room having their own garden.

From the tranquillity of our peaceful Baby Room, with lots of toys for little hands and cuddles from our staff, through to our bright and spacious Toddler Rooms, full of activities for curious minds, Hollies Arnold provides the perfect environment for developing imagination, creativity and physical skills.  Our Pre-School Room has plenty of space for exploring and engaging, activity learning and critical thinking, preparing your young people for school and giving them the skills they need to move forward with confidence.  


We spend as much time as possible in the out doors in the fresh air.  Whether it’s visiting our nearby Forest School or simply playing in the garden or trips to the woods, we use the motto ‘there is no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing”.  We value the environment around us and try to expand the children’s learning in a as much as possible.

Our experienced nursery cook freshly prepares all of our food on-site.  Menus are changed daily, with a wide range of healthy, balanced options and children are encouraged to try new things at mealtimes and make good choices.
