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.

For Red Nose Day the Dartmouth under 2s enjoyed painting with red. Finger and hand painting and even coordinating to draw lots of red circles. Their enthusiasm was infectious when exploring, chasing and catching their new Red Nose balloons. ... See MoreSee Less

Exploring with flour! The Dartmouth under 2s engaged in pretend play, pretending to make a cake. The children enjoyed filling and emptying containers and doing lots of mixing. Enjoying a messy play at home allows your little Explorers to learn with textures, coordination and use their fine motor skills, but the cleaning up after a messy play is much easier at Humpty Dumpty Childcare than at home. ...

Dartmouth Daycare Parent Reviews

In a recent survey, over 90% of parents said they would recommend Humpty Dumpty Childcare to a friend! This delighted us, and is a testament to the consistently high level of care in all of our nurseries.

Below are a handful of comments from our parents:

    Our Dartmouth Childcare Setting is rated ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ features

    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

    Every child at our Dartmouth Nursery has their own Key Worker who is responsible for settling children into nursery and monitoring and assessing their progress and development in association with parents and carers.

    The majority of our team are qualified to Level 3 as a minimum and hold current 12 hour paediatric first aid qualification.

    We believe passionately in supporting staff development and regularly hold inhouse training sessions and work with local training providers to buy in CPD opportunities for our staff.

    We would love to hear from you!

      “The effective key person system helps children to settle in quickly. Staff establish nurturing relationships with children and this helps children feel valued and develops their confidence.”

      “Children benefit from regular opportunities to enjoy fresh air, develop their physical skills and explore the natural environment when playing in the outdoors area.”

      “Staff frequently make changes to the nursery environment by monitoring children’s ongoing interests and supplying relevant resources to extend learning opportunities.”

      “The management have a good understanding of the safeguarding and welfare, and learning and development requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.”
