At Happy Day Nursery we aim to give
your child the best start in life.

A family-run nursery established for over 40 years,
we provide full and part-time care for children aged 0 to 5.

A happy and caring place

We focus on maintaining a happy, stimulating environment and providing the warmest care. Our nursery is a friendly place you can trust.

A team you can rely on

We have a caring, experienced and fully-qualified team. Our staff stay with us for many years, so you and your little ones will always see familiar faces.

Our team members regularly attend in-house and external training courses, including safeguarding, and all hold current paediatric first aid certificates.

Spaces to explore

Our nursery is a beautiful, purpose-built building in quiet surroundings, with a large, leafy outdoor play area, high-quality equipment and our very own mud kitchen.

Things to make and do

A typical day for our children involves lots of fun activities - building, splashing, digging, brushing, singing and dancing are just a few.

The children also enjoy weekly visits from professional coaches and teachers – in music, multi-sports and French, as well as Stretch-n-grow and Happy Day Diggers (our very own gardening and eco group).

A place to learn and develop

We provide a high-quality learning environment for our children, and an exciting and challenging curriculum to support individualised learning – across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage(EYFS).

"Parents are extremely happy and feel that they and their children are well supported and that their children are safe, secure and challenged while in nursery."

A healthy start

With our professional chef and large, full-featured kitchen, we provide healthy, balanced meals for our children that are fun to eat and taste great.

Settling in

We appreciate that starting nursery can be a daunting time for both you and your child. Your key person will put together a bespoke settling-in programme to suit your schedule, and to give your little one time to get used to their new environment.

Partnership with parents

We actively encourage parental involvement in all aspects of nursery life, and were the second nursery in the country to achieve the Leading Partnership with Parents Award.

Free funded sessions

We offer the government-funded free places for 2, 3 & 4 year olds; the 15 hour entitlement can be taken as sessions to suit your needs and routine.

What our parents say

"We have been delighted with Happy Day Nursery. The communication with parents is second-to-none and everyone has taken the time to really get to know our daughter."

“Our two children have loved being part of the friendly, engaging, caring, fun nursery environment and we really appreciate the support all the nursery staff have given us as parents over the past five years.”

“We have recommended Happy Day Nursery to a lot of parents because the care they provide is exceptional. They always go that extra mile to make sure the needs of the child and parent are met.”
