Dartmouth Nursery

Our Dartmouth Nursery is divided into groups, depending on the age and development 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 qualified, experienced and caring staff. This means that whenever your child starts their journey with us, 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 HMRC’s Tax Free Childcare scheme at our Dartmouth Nursery or your child is eligible for 15 hours or 30 hours funding please check out our ultimate guide to childcare funding.

    Our latest Ofsted inspection in Dartmouth daycare was in July 2017 and we achieved a status of ‘Good’. Below are some standout quotes from the report that perfectly reflect our approach to childcare:

    “The well-qualified staff show a good understanding of how children learn. They observe and assess children’s progress and plan well to provide them with a range of interesting and challenging activities”

    “Staff are friendly and caring. Children respond positively to praise from staff and show great pride in their achievements”

    “Staff promote children’s awareness of leading a healthy living well. For example, parents and children were involved in reviewing menu ideas. Staff and children follow good hygiene practices by washing their hands before eating and after using the toilet”

    “Staff develop good partnership with parents. They share regular information about children’s learning and development to support learning at home”

    “Strong leadership and good team working create efficient, harmonious environment. The management team consistently strives to improve outcomes for children. For example, it is introducing new review systems for staff that focuses on the quality of teaching and learning”

    About our team at Dartmouth Nursery
