Humpty Dumpty Childcare, Dartington Nursery (Totnes)

Our beautiful Dartington childcare setting is just a few miles from Totnes. At our Dartington Daycare we provide quality childcare for children aged 3 months to 12 years across our nursery, pre-school, after-school and holiday Playclub. The Dartington Nursery has been consistently rated as good.

Dartington Childcare

We are very proud of the extensive grounds which surround our Dartington nursery. They have been divided to allow the staff to create independent areas for our babies, toddlers and preschool and provide opportunities to encourage risk and challenge as appropriate.

Dartington Daycare Groups

Our Dartington Nursery is divided into groups depending on the age and level of each individual child. Within their groups, children can explore play equipment and facilities that are designed to recognise and develop their skills under the watchful supervision of our caring staff. This means that whenever your child starts their journey with us at our Dartington nursery, they have the flexibility to move between playrooms as and when their individual abilities show they are ready for the next challenge.

If you are considering using Childcare Vouchers at our Dartington Daycare or your child is eligible for 15 hours or 30 hours free funding please check out our ultimate guide to childcare vouchers and free funding.

We also have nurseries in Newton Abbot and Dartmouth.
