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.

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

Across all our nurseries we are constantly encouraging the children's self-independence and responsibility when carrying out small tasks.

This covers many aspects of the children's development, including understanding the needs of others and impoving their fine and gross motor skills. It also presents an opportunity to praise their achievement when using their own initiative.

In Dartmouth pre-school, we had a child help to lay the table, whilst others decided to sweep up and some of the children served themselves at lunchtime.

The Dartmouth pre-school children helped our cook Hannah with the bread today. The perfect accompaniment to our yummy Lentil and Butternut Squash soup. They shaped, flattened and placed it on the baking tray, ready to go in the oven. This is great for the development of the children's fine motor skills.

Once baked, we cut, dunked and ate the bread with our healthy and yummy soup.

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

It's that time of year when lots of things grow in our front garden. In the Dartmouth classroom today, James found some conkers for the children to explore. They described them as "spiky", "green", and "prickly on our fingers". From this activity, the children can develop their skills in maths, expressive arts and design, communication and canguage and their understanding of the world. ... See MoreSee Less

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

We had lots of fun in Dartmouth pre-school today with the multilink cubes.

Some children made a 'yummy hot chocolate’, others made some jewellery and others did some colour sorting.

This is a great example of 'in the moment' planning, bringing mathematics to the children during their free play, whilst they develop their expressive arts and design.

Humpty Dumpty Childcare

It's 'Children In Need' and the Dartmouth pre-school children have been making some yummy chocolate biscuits, doing lots of measuring and counting to develop their Mathematics whilst using tools to roll, stir and pour the ingredients which in turn develops their fine motor skills.
The biscuits are not just yummy but also dairy and egg free so everyone can have some!
By getting involved in 'Children in Need" this develops the Children's Understanding of the World and promotes 'British Values.
Well done class!

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

    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
