The rooms we have
Academy Day Nursery operates five spacious childcare rooms, all decorated and fitted to meet the highest of standards. We aim not only to be the best, but to stay the best and will therefore review, upgrade the rooms and equipment where necessary.
All the rooms are split in two areas:
- A dry area which allows children to sleep, read, listen to music and story telling
- A wet area which allows exploration, play and experimenting
Our children's rooms:

It will provide children who attend school with fun learning environment in the school holidays. The room has computer facilities and a variety of tools to complement subjects learn at school. This room focuses on a great variety of activities inside and outside the nursery guided by experienced and well trained staff.
Key workers have a system and set routine but are able to be flexible to meet individual needs. Each child will have a named worker who will be the parents' first port of contact. We feel this helps parents develop a closer relationship with us.
Each child's progress will be discussed at our parents' evenings which are held twice yearly, therefore parents will be kept up to date with their child's development.
We also have a daily diary system which informs parents of the child's daily routine, for example activities and learning during the day, meal times, nappy changes and sleep patterns.
Some of the areas we focus on with the children are
- Building friendships
- Bringing out the best in each individual child through a stimulating and caring environment
- Create a situation where the child is comfortable and confident in his/her surroundings
- Help the child/ren be free to play, explore and learn
We are proud to be one of few nurseries that specially focus on cultural themes and introduce our children to cultures around the world. Examples include talking about different cultures, exploring their habits, beliefs and dressing up, etc.
Each child at The Academy Day Nursery will be discussed with parent(s)/guardian(s) so you will always be up to date with the development of your child.
