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.

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

Today in Dartmouth we are having a mini science lesson, discovering which items will float and which will sink. The children were asked to make prediction and then put forward ideas as to why they think the objects floated or sank. The children came up with some brilliant comments for the results of their experiment. One child said it was "too heavy" and another suggested that we could "pour water on it to weigh it down, then it will sink!" ... See MoreSee Less

The Dartmouth pre-school children have been busy trying a new food today... avocado! They watched as we carefully cut it open and they noticed the big stone inside. They were all keen to try it and whereas some didn’t like it much at all and described it as ‘too slimy’, others appeared to love it. Even though not everyone liked the taste of avocado it was fantastic that they were all willing and excited to try a new type of food. ... See MoreSee Less

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

    “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
