What makes Charnwood Day Nursery so special?

At Charnwood Day Nursery everything we do is designed around our core values: to teach, engage and provide children with the experiences and skills they need to be happy and successful in life.


Highly qualified, experienced & friendly staff

The quality and commitment of our staff sets us apart from many other nurseries. We take the utmost care to recruit and retain only the best and most dedicated Early Years practitioners – we are well aware that a nursery is only as good as its staff team.


An unusually high proportion of our staff have formal qualifications in childcare and many have years of experience of working with children. All our staff are trained to extend each child's learning, giving them added confidence and a valuable head start for when they go to primary school.  


In addition, all our staff have Paediatric First Aid qualifications, whereas Ofsted require only one trained member of staff per nursery.


Key worker

Each child is assigned to a 'key worker', a specific person who is responsible for ensuring the care and safety of your children and for reviewing and monitoring their development and wellbeing as they settle into life at Charnwood Day Nursery.


Creative outdoor space

Outdoor play is a big part of our learning and child development program at Charnwood Day Nursery. We reguarly plan fun activities and themed events outdoors, and provide plenty of opportunuites for babies and children to explore, play and interact in the fresh air.


Unique learning opportunities

Our homely play rooms and facilities enable us to offer a wide range of unique learning opportunities and experiences for our children to explore; including our messy and soft play areas, organic kitchen, secure outdoor play area, pre-school room and much more.

Charnwood is an excellent nursery.  The staff work hard to create a warm and loving environment, which they achieve wonderfully, and at the same time create fantastic bonds with all the children.  


They provide a very high standard of care, which is important when leaving your child in the care of others.


Charnwood provides excellent organic meals which Emmy loves. We cannot imagine sending her anywhere else.
