A Unique Nursery Family

We are a family of nurseries that provide a caring and stimulating environment for children aged 3-months through to preschool. Our highly-qualified nursery educators encourage all children to learn and develop at their own pace. The HDC Curriculum encourages the natural desire to grow, explore and question and, as a result, our nursery educators strive to capture the interests of each child.

This progressive and unique learning curriculum works to each child's individual abilities. As well as developing each child’s emotional skills, their day also includes a fun and enriching learning environment through play, science, technology, engineering, arts and maths (STEAM). Our highly-qualified early years educators help each child to develop their individual strengths and curiosity, and therefore each child is encouraged along the way.

Our team take the time to develop trusting relationships with both the child and his or her family. You will receive updates through our easy to use app as well as the opportunity to catch up at the end of your child's day.

HDC is a family of four nurseries located in the South West of Devon. We continuously upgrade our inspiring nursery environments because we believe a child's surroundings can help to develop their curious minds. We recognise that working and raising a child can be a difficult balancing act and therefore we offer childcare from 7:30am - 6:00pm and offer half-day additions to our scheduling to help you manage your busy schedule.


Designed to prepare children for life in the modern world, our Early Years Curriculum identifies four key focus areas: Health, Self Expression, Global Responsibility, STEAM


Our Early Years Educators qualification requirements goes above and beyond the majority of childcare settings.  95% of our staff hold a Level 3 qualification and above


100% of our early years educators are trained in paediatric first aid


Our nutritionist develops our menu seasonally, using largely organic produce. Our mealtimes teach children about the importance of healthy eating and encourage positive attitudes around food
