Here at Ladel’s Day Nursery, we are committed to providing a fun and safe environment for your child to learn and develop. We always make sure there is plenty for them to do, with our team members on hand at all times to help. When in our care, you can rest assured that your child will be having fun, but learning at the same time too.

Our environment

Offering day care and preschool for children aged between three months and five years, we have split our nursery into two age groups to ensure every child has access to the space, toys and equipment suitable to their age.

We have a soft play area for our children who are aged between three months and two years old, with a large free-flow area then used for all children who are aged between two and five.

Your child’s learning

Ladel’s Day Nursery adheres to the guidelines of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which implements planned and child-initiated activities, and gives diverse opportunities and choice of ‘what and with whom’ children play with indoors and outdoors.

We put great emphasis on equal opportunities and encourage your child to freely express themselves, whether verbally or non-verbally. We allow them to participate in play activities of their choice, and also pay particular attention to cultural preferences in terms of activities, regularly collaborating with parents to provide a culturally appropriate curriculum to help overcome personal and social barriers.

The layout of our childcare setting also provides a free-flow system where the children have unlimited access to outdoor play. This enables them to explore, play and experience valuable first-hand learning of their environment.

Our team

Every member of the team here at Ladel’s Day Nursery is passionate about the care of your child. We want to help your child create lasting childhood memories, playing an active role in their learning and development right through until they are ready to start school.

We know how important it is as parents for you to feel comfortable and happy that your child is in good hands, and in the safe environment of our nursery, you can be assured that they will be having fun as well as learning valuable skills and building their knowledge.

Our qualified and friendly staff will always ensure your child feels at home, away from home.

Staffing and Key Person System

The Key Person System

Ladels Day Nursery Limited policy is to have a high ratio of adults to children. This allows us to have a Key Person system, which gives each member of staff particular responsibility for just a few children. As a result, each child in the group has one special adult to relate to, which can make settling into a group much easier. In addition, the key person can tailor the group’s activities for each individual child.
