ABC Day Nursery & Pre-School

ABC day nursery is situated within a converted barn. It is has been ran for 10 years by the current owners, Sue who manages the nursery and Phil who cooks the childrens lunches and looks after all maintenance. The nursery has a pre-school room, baby/toddler area with a separate baby changing area and cot room. ABC benefits from beautiful sensory garden to the rear of the nursery and a soft black matting play area to the front of the nursery with a peaceful and well equipped outdoor space. We have a car park and safe, secure building where children have lots of space to grow, while having fun.

The ethos of the nursery is to learn through playing in a natural and calm environment, offering new experiences, plus allowing children time to explore and investigate for themselves. We have a large variety of resources, to help nurture each child’s characteristic of learning. Whether they are an active learning, Play & explore or creative & think critically, we offer an environment to nurture this! Along with a full & varied programme of education to stimulate a young child’s enquiring mind.

Staff are excellent role models for the children, by having a calm and enthusiastic approach, they nurture their independence to support children develop their self-esteem. We have a high regard for training and all staff are qualified in first aid and to NVQ 2 & 3 level (or in training for an NVQ). The owner/manager Sue Proffitt has a degree in early years, Level 3 safeguarding training, first aid and various other training certificates relating to the care of young children.

Staff thoroughly enjoy their day, ensuring that all children are having a good day and that we are aware of each child’s learning and development, you can keep up to date daily by visiting our facebook page.
