Nightingale Day Nursery is a purpose built nursery, with an open plan playroom, on one level. The nursery is clean, bright, and equipped to a high standard. We are situated in a peaceful
location off the road, next to Victoria Park. We have two outdoor play areas with a wide range of outdoor equipment; one all weather paved area with some artificial grass, shaded by trees in the summer, and another enclosed grassed area, which incorporates a tree house and climbing frame on a safe surface.
We have made some exciting changes to our learning environments. In September 2016, we set up our homely toddler area for our 1-2 year olds. We take three children and have an experienced level 3 nursery nurse leading this area with a nursery assistant to help, to provide the children with maximum care and attention.
In May 2017, we opened our new Pre-school building. This is located next door and provides our Pre-schoolers with a challenging indoor and outdoor learning environment. This building has direct access to our large garden and its climbing equipment.
We work hard to ensure children have a suitable environment in which to develop and learn. Two areas we find particularly important concern a child’s first days at the nursery ( see Settling In ) and the food we provide for them ( see Meals ).
