Now offering Enhanced Settle Sessions

Are you thinking about your return to work?  

Or are wanting your baby to socialise with others?  

Worried your baby will not settle into nursery? 

At hdc we understand that 2020 was not a normal year for families with new babies, there was very limited opportunity for new parents to join groups, meet up with family and friends and as a result some babies are, understandably, cautious around new people.

To support families who are now needing to consider returning to work or simply wanting to introduce their baby to other children, hdc Newton Abbot is offering Enhanced Settle Sessions* for babies under 2.

Enhanced Settle Sessions are a two-month period where you can leave your little one for two or three half days a week whilst you build up to full days.

Your nursery manager and baby's key person will work with you and your baby throughout these enhanced settle sessions to ease your baby into nursery life.

Our Enhanced Settle Sessions will be offered to families with children under two who feel their child would benefit from an extended settling period, giving both you and your baby that valuable, additional time to build relationships with both the nursery and your child’s key worker. Our aim is to give you the confidence to return to work, study, etc. and give your baby the best possible start to nursery life.

To learn more, please fill out an enquiry and our nursery manager will return your call.

Parent Testimonials

'My two boys love coming to nursery every day. They settled incredibly quickly into a welcoming, loving and nurturing family. Thank you for everything that you do.'

'Staff are friendly and caring and my son is always keen to run into nursery in the morning. He enjoys a variety of imaginative activities and there is always a good balance of messy/creative, physical, role play, stories and songs each day. Staff use a child-led approach and so observe what the children are playing with or interested in and develop activities based around this and guide their play into new otherwise unconsidered directions.'

'My two boys love Humpty Dumpty. They love the staff and all the games and activities. They always come home happy. The staff are brilliant, caring and attentive and very accommodating.'

Our Rooms

Under-2's: 3  - 21 months

Our under 2’s space is a safe, cosy, stimulating environment with a home-from-home feel. With the space split into areas, this allows our youngest children to feel comfortable exploring- should it be for some quiet time to explore stories or the rough and tumble of our indoor physical play equipment to help build those all important muscles. Our enclosed, outdoor space is accessed daily to ensure the children get the fresh air they need and can explore nature at its best!

Toddlers: 22 - 34 months

We have a wide range of open-ended and natural resources in our toddler room to enable the children to use their imaginations and spark their curiosity, building strong relationships with their peers and the staff. The children’s creativity often leads their play in to our outdoors area, which we access regularly in all weathers- from our delightful mud kitchen to our water wall and large sand area. Messy play is available all day every day, inside and outside and we encourage all children to get involved should they wish.

Preschool: 3 & 4 years

Our preschoolers have really built up their independence throughout their time at nursery and are actively consulted about the activities they have available each day. We offer more adult led activities in this room to help the children prepare for their next stage in life- school! However, as we follow the children’s interests to extend their learning, the adult led activities are very much based around what excites and inspires the children. Outdoors, the preschool children love to build, climb and create, testing their own personal boundaries, and with the support and encouragement from our highly trained staff, they go on to accomplish their goals.
