Parent Testimonials

'I'm so pleased with how well my daughter has settled at Humpty Dumpty. She seems excited on her nursery days to go and see her friends and see her keyworker. The hours work really well for my husband and me around our work and we know she has a great time there.'

'HDC made the process of my child starting nursery much easier and I'm really pleased I chose to go with them. The menu, play offered and staff are brilliant.'

Our Rooms

Under 2's: 3  - 21 months

Our baby room has a large space with plenty of windows and light. The room has a private deck that allows for plenty of fresh air. Our professional approach is based on the personal needs and interests of each child. Your babies key person is a friendly and knowledgeable early years educator who nurture holistic development.

Toddlers: 22 - 34 months

As your child becomes more independent, emphasis on child-centred practice and growth will give them the self-reliance and confidence to thrive. Our nursery educators enable active learning based on play and exploration. Our Toddler Room has key areas and activities to capture the essential "learning in the moment". The room has plenty of natural light and the Toddler Room has its own deck area to allow for fresh air and sunshine.

Preschool: 3 & 4 years

As children approach their third birthday, after a discussion with parents/carers, children will start a transition period from the toddler room into our Preschool Room. Each nursery has its own dedicated Preschool Room Leader, they are qualified and experienced educators who delight in meeting the needs of this age range. They focus on the individual child and ensure that learning experiences have the right element of challenge to focus the child’s learning. Our priority is to ensure that every child makes progress and that no child gets left behind.
