Modular Buildings For Nurseries

Provide an exceptional learning and play environment with portable modular nursery buildings.

High-Quality Temporary and Permanent Modular Buildings for Nurseries

As part of the Spring 2023 Budget, The Chancellor announced the plan to increase the availability of free childcare from approved providers for all parents. This announcement has inevitably created a substantial rise in pre-school children requiring nursey placements.

Due to limited available funds and short time constraints, nurseries within the education sector are struggling to accommodate the ever-growing number of applications. Springfield has been providing a solution to this growing problem for over 50 years.

At Springfield, we understand that as an early year’s education provider, you strive to provide a safe and stimulating learning environment for your children, especially when finance, space and time are restricted.

During our time working within the education sector, we’ve helped customers such as  Brighter Beginnings and Discovery Vine Childcare expand and enhance their early years environments with a modular nursery building.

Modular Buildings for Nurseries

At Springfield, we construct our modular buildings off-site in our ISO-approved production facility and deliver them directly to you.

A major advantage of choosing Springfield for your building is that all our buildings are bespoke, built specifically for you, not something we have already built but try to make suit your requirements!

Here at Springfield, we listen to your specific needs to understand the purpose for which the building is intended. Our design team will then work with you to get a feel for your ideas, explain the wide range of finishes inside and out to create the building you imagined. We ensure all the features you want are incorporated and suggest a few ideas that you maybe hadn’t even thought of, ensuring every penny of your budget counts and your new building is the best it can be.

Additionally, our off-site construction methods offer all the benefits of a traditional build but at a fraction of the time and cost, which clearly makes them an ideal solution for nurseries working to a tight budget or those who require a prompt turnaround.

Their installation is quick, they are cost-effective, environmentally friendly and they can be easily extended or re-sited to meet changing requirements.

The great thing is it really doesn’t cost anymore, we just offer you a wider choice of finishes and materials.

The Benefits Modular Nursery Buildings

These adaptable modular buildings offer all the benefits of a durable and permanent structure but combined with the advantages of temporary buildings. As well as being extremely cost-effective, stimulating, and secure, there are many reasons why our modular nursery buildings are the top choice within the sector:

Minimal disruption
We recognise the significant importance of reducing disruption during learning time. Our modular nursery buildings are constructed off-site and delivered and installed at the location, meaning that we will only be on-site for a few days mitigating the potential risks – construction sites and children are clearly a situation to be avoided! Most of our school & nursery installations are scheduled for holiday periods for exactly this reason.

Rapid turnaround
With the number of placement applications growing rapidly, time is of the essence. Our portable modular buildings can be designed, delivered, and installed in just a few weeks if needs be, but our lead time is growing, reflecting the increased demand generated by recent investment, so early contact is recommended if your need for more space is urgent.

With multiple options for bespoke external building finishes such as natural wood and brick slip, you can create a completely personalised structure that blends perfectly with your surroundings or existing provision.

Portable and reusable
Unlike traditional permanent structures, our modular buildings are portable and reusable, so if your requirements change, your building can be uplifted and reinstalled elsewhere.

We can manage the entire project
We also provide a complete turnkey package to ensure the entire project is managed on your behalf, from the initial design process, right through to planning, groundworks, land scaping and utilities installation. We can handle it all so you don’t have to.

Specialist Features

With 50 years of experience serving customers in the education and early years sector, we understand just how important it is to create a safe and secure learning environment for children, which is why our buildings come equipped with a range of specialist features such as:

  • Door and window fingerguards
  • Anti-scald taps
  • Lighting proven to enhance learning
  • Electronically controlled roof skylights with automated ventilation management and rain sensors
  • Heavy-duty plasterboard for increased impact resistance and soundproofing to a 35db rating
  • We also offer specialist design packages for SEN schools & nurseries SEND considerations

Schools across the UK have applauded our durable and child-friendly modular buildings, which offer an excellent blend of cost efficiency, pupil safety and enhanced learning capabilities.

Our portable buildings

Portable cabins are self-contained buildings, built off-site, making them an ideal way to expand your business or school, particularly when there are time or budget constraints. They can be quickly installed and are more affordable than traditional builds.
