"All children have an allocated Nursery Nurse who is responsible for their individual needs and by helping to provide a warm home-from-home environment."

The rooms we have

Baby room

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:

Our children's rooms:

Key workers

Teacher helping out toddler

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.

Focus areas

building friendships

Some of the areas we focus on with the children are

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.
