Modular Nurseries & Early Years Buildings

Early Years providers love that our modular nursery buildings can stand alone providing bright, secure spaces.

Eco-Friendly Nursery Buildings to Inspire

Natural materials, large windows and doors and flexible design make our buildings ideal, secure spaces for the foundation stages. Our covered walkways, secure lobby’s and wide doorways provide free flow access to the outdoors in all weathers. The options of sun pipes, sedum roofs along with energy-efficient designs make our A+ rated buildings more economical to run and cosy in the winter months.

Project Management

We make it a point to include everything in the project proposal. It couldn’t be easier with full bespoke design and project management in a one stop shop, including:

  • Planning permission/ building regulations
  • Foundations and clearance
  • Service connections
  • Demolition if required

We are in it for the long term

Every Learning Escape comes with:

  • 10 years’ warranty on the main structure
  • 20 years’ warranty on the roof
  • 12 months manufacturer’s warranty for fixtures and fittings
  • A lifespan exceeding 60 years with minimal upkeep, designed in accordance with euro code zero.

We offer after care and will be happy to discuss a long term maintenance plan or changes of usage that come along. Read more about how these buildings can support the ‘Framework for early years foundation stage’.

All Learning Escapes are bespoke designs by our Architects Metropolis but here are three examples of classic early years settings. Prices quoted are for our full service from planning to handover.

What our customers say

“We have seen a big improvement in the children’s behaviour and they are much calmer, something that we think may be due to the natural light they have which was not available in the previous room.”

Alison Price

Head teacher

“The children find the external views and connection with the environment to be genuinely inspirational.”
