About Roots Federation

Roots Federation is focused on Educational Excellence for Early Years in Hertfordshire and Beyond. We are a federation of nursery schools providing exceptional education for under-fives across Hertfordshire. We’re passionate about giving every child the start they deserve, and offer consultation that puts children back at the heart of budgets. We show schools how to resource effectively so they financially thrive long into the future.

We offer training in a play and nature-based curriculum that sees children exceed key milestones and go on to lead rich and successful lives. Practitioners learn to create joyful, engaging spaces where children form meaningful relationships and a lifelong love of learning. If your setting needs new leadership, we invite you to join our federation and share in our success.

 Federated in 2022, our three schools are shining examples of why our approach to early years works. Each setting is a community of mutual respect and care in which children, practitioners, leadership, staff and families work and grow together.

Our nurseries all have high aspirations for children, and share a sense of purpose in giving them the best start possible. Most importantly, each setting does this in an atmosphere of kindness, joy and fun.
