Hi, our names are Laurna and Alison and we would like to welcome you and your family to Autumn Cottage Childcare and Pre-school.

We provide wrap around care for Charles Kingsley CofE School, Nursery care from 0-2.5 years and pre-school education from 2.5 – 5 years.

Our aim is to provide a loving, caring environment that will nurture your child’s growth and development spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically. We will be starting to introduce a variety of objects into the children’s play that are from an adult world and authentic, giving children the opportunity of real-life experiences, igniting their curiosity.
We feel that this will enhance and develop their skills and extend their learning to another level.

We are adopting a minimal plastic environment for our children to learn and grow, based on a culture of respect for the environment, all living creatures, and, ultimately, each other. This is called The Curiosity Approach.

Eversley Village Hall
Glaston Hill Road

What Parents are Saying


Miranda Sparkes

Laurna, Ali & team are amazing.

They make your child feel like they are home from home. They offer a great service with useful opening hours at a good price & food that the children will eat. Every time we drive past Autumn Cottage, my little one shouts out “hello autumn cottage” and then asks when she is next there again and bounces around happily when I tell her.

Would not hesitate recommending Autumn Cottage to other parents.


Emma Lewis

All 3 of my children have attended Autumn Cottage and our family has now celebrated 10 years with Ali and Laurna. We had previously had childminders and tried a local nursery but nothing compares to Autumn Cottage. From structured topical play for the little ones to support with homework for the older ones. Convenient pick-up and drop-offs and the children being able to attend after school clubs.

Ali and Laurna feel like an extension of our family and I know they would be there for any of our children if they needed it, including the now 18 year old!

The Team at Autumn Cottage are just fabulous! My little Dude absolutely loves it there and I wouldn’t dream of sending him anywhere else! He always comes home so happy and has clearly had the best time!!!

The Ladies are amazing and always offer advice when I need it (which is more often than not)

Thank you for being so wonderful!!
