Dartmouth Nursery

Humpty Dumpty Childcare, Dartmouth Nursery

Our purpose built Dartmouth Childcare Setting is based on the Dartmouth Academy site, Milton Lane. Our Dartmouth Daycare is registered by Ofsted to provide quality childcare for children aged 3 months – 5 years. The Dartmouth Nursery has been consistently rated good.

Dartmouth Childcare

The Dartmouth nursery offers daycare to all children from babies all the way through to starting school. We divide our Dartmouth Childcare Nursery into groups depending on the age and level of each individual child.

Dartmouth Daycare Groups

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. Our Dartmouth Daycare is broken down into babies, toddlers and preschool.

This means that whenever your child starts their journey with us at our Dartmouth Daycare, they have the flexibility to move between playrooms as and when their individual abilities show they’re ready for the next challenge!

If you are considering using Childcare Vouchers at our Dartmouth 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.

Splish! Splash! Splosh! The Dartmouth class had lots of fun in our paddling pool full of bubbles. They put sea creatures in the water and turned it into a rock pool. This is great for their exploration, using materials and adopting roles in their play, relating their experiences outside of the nursery setting. ... See MoreSee Less

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

James and Hannah helped the Dartmouth pre-school children to make their own butter using a washing machine. They had great fun and were amazed to see that it worked!
Step 1: Pour some lightly salted whipping cream into a jug.
Step 2: Tightly seal tight with some cling film.
Step 3: Ensure the lid is screwed on tightly.
Step 4: SHAKE IT UP!
Step 5: Place in the washing machine on a low temperature cycle.
Step 6: Spread and enjoy!
This is a great activity to enhance the children's technological and fine motor skills, while providing an opportunity for practicing their numeracy skills through measuring and timekeeping.
