Day Nursery & Pre-school Provision in Derby

Grand Reopening – January 2021  

Thornhill Renovation & Extension

Our nursery is currently undergoing an exciting renovation and extension, which is expected to be completed in time for a grand reopening in January 2021. Our fully redesigned nursery will feature unique environments for all age groups, as well as a stunning garden area for stretching those little legs.

The Garden
Re-designed & Re-imagined

Our huge garden has been professionally re-designed and will provide new and endless opportunities for children to explore, discover and play.

Thornhill Extension

The newly designed nursery at Thornhill is the result of many months of planning, and we believe the centre will be the flagship nursery in Derby.

Baby Room

CAPACITY: 12 Children

AGES: 6 Weeks – 12 Months

Our Baby Room has been designed to allow children to tap into their senses and embark on a pathway to discovery. Babies can pull up a cushion at our heuristic play table, where they can get hands on with a range of natural materials. Or they can crawl over to our messy play area to have a splash in our water tray or brush up on some mark making. When they’re ready to rest, our separate sleep room provides babies with a soothing environment in which to relax and unwind after a busy morning or afternoon of play and excitement.

First Steps Room

CAPACITY: 12 Children

AGES: 1 – 2 Years

We have a First Steps Room to support children who are transitioning from the Baby Room into the next stage of their development. Babies grow very rapidly in the first year, so there is a big difference between a baby who is one month old and twelve months old. Our First Steps Room allows children to tap into their senses and embrace a world of discovery. Children in our First Steps Room can pull up a cushion at our heuristic play table, where they can get hands on with a range of natural materials.

Toddler Room

CAPACITY: 16 Children

AGES: 2 – 3 Years

As children become more mobile, they inevitably become more curious about the things around them. Toddlers often like to be that little bit more independent and daring, which is why our Toddler Room is designed to encourage children to embrace their newly discovered skills.

At this age in your child’s life, it’s important that they are given access to a wide range of activities that will give them the opportunity to learn how to interact with other children and begin to develop skills such as sharing and being kind to others.

Pre-School Room

CAPACITY: 30 Children

AGES: 3 – 5 Years

From creative constructions to wide-ranging interests, there’s always something unique and exciting happening in our Pre-school Room. The Pre-school Room is the last step in your child’s early years education. As children approach primary school age, our staff will help to prepare them for school and ensure they are ready for their next big step. Many of the other activities that take place in the Pre-school Room are based on what your child has shown a keen interest in.
