Introducing Canopy Shrewsbury

Canopy Shrewsbury is located in the large, characterful building and extensive grounds of the former Four Crosses Inn near Bicton, conveniently situated for parents who live or work in the Shrewsbury area.

Following an extensive refurbishment programme, we opened our doors to our first cohort of babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers in April 2022.

Here are some images of our fantastic child-friendly space, complete with its own Indoor Discovery Garden.  It is designed to be light, airy and spacious with free-flowing access to the outside space.

The Orchard provides parents with an on-site work space and community hub.

We invite you and your children to come along and see it for yourselves!

    The nursery is open for 51 weeks per year, closing for 1 week between Christmas and New Year.  Parents choose a weekly schedule which can comprise any combination of the following sessions:

    Full days: 7.30am – 6pm

    Short days: 8.30am – 3.15pm

    Mornings: 7.30am – 12.30pm

    During their day at Canopy, children will sit down together for freshly prepared organic meals and snacks, relax in a quiet, comfortable environment to rest/sleep and will learn new ways to challenge their physical development.

    Fees are fully inclusive of meals, drinks and snacks.

    We ask parents to supply nappies and formula/breast milk only.



    Fees are payable monthly in advance.  Customers will be required to set up a direct debit which will automatically collect their fees on the 1st of every month.


    A registration fee of £200 is payable to secure your child’s place, £100 of which will be returned when they leave the nursery.


    Canopy accepts childcare vouchers and tax free childcare payments.


    Canopy Children’s Nurseries accept local authority funding in the form of 15 or 30 hours of free childcare.  This does not cover our services in full so a supplement is still payable for additional services.

    Policies & Procedures

    Canopy Children’s Nursery Shrewsbury is a day nursery which provides day care and childcare for babies, toddlers and preschool children.  The pre-school provides similar care and education to a kindergarten, Montessori school or school nursery in the foundation stage.  If you are looking for pre school places or day care in Shrewsbury or further afield in Shropshire, then we would love to hear from you.

    The Orchard

    Whilst most of our environment is dedicated to the children, The Orchard has been designed with their parents in mind. It provides a space where parents can sit and work, meet up with others or just take a few minutes out of their busy day to relax with a cup of a coffee.

    Although it is particularly convenient for our customers, we welcome members of the wider community and are happy to make it available for a variety of community events.
