Located on the key commuter route into Southampton from the east of the city, our Sholing nursery serves families from a wide geographical area. 

Over recent years, we have developed the building and outdoors to provide a more spacious and comfortable environment whilst still retaining the homely feel that we believe is important to children’s well-being.

The nursery occupies a substantial plot with plenty of outdoors space for all ages. With its paths, platform, playhouse and gazebos, there are different zones in which we engage in all 7 areas of learning.

Come and have a look at our beautiful baby balcony!


Manager's Message

Hello my name is Reagan - I have worked for a variety of different settings in nearly every role and have over 10 years experience in early years. I also have vast experience of inclusion and supporting children with additional needs.

I love Paint Pots and what we offer so much so that I left the company and returned in less than a year. We offer a wonderful homely environment with dedicated staff who truly care for the children. I hope that by the end of a child's time at Paint Pots they have flourished into independent, caring and inquisitive children.

I'm currently undertaking a degree in early years and play work. In my spare time I enjoy sewing and cake making skills I love to share with the children.
