Dickory Docks Educational Day Nursery

Welcome to our Nursery!

We open at 7.00am, starting Mon 3rd September 2018!

We have two separate buildings and have 3 outside play areas inside of Prospect School grounds. The D-Block houses the Babies and Toddlers, and the LogCabin houses our Pre School. There are covered outdoor spaces allowing all weather play, along with outdoor safety bounce flooring.

Children have access to low level Smartboards, spacious outdoor gardens, teaching resources, and focus group rooms. 

Our emphasis is on education and learning; and have excellent support structure. Our rooms are designed cover all areas of the EYFS, so they can explore and learn through play and become confident.

We use Tapestry Online Learning Journals to ensure childrens learning and development is easily captured and recorded. In addition, and with appropriate permission, parents can view and add to their child's learning journal online.

All children benefit from the availability of healthy, fresh and daily cooked nutritional food, delivered to us by Crumbs Food Company.

We offer 10% discount for Siblings. Term time places are available in the Pre School. Our children range from 3 Months to 5 Years. The charges are £256.00 per week, £56 per day, £38.00(8am-1pm); £35.00(1pm-6pm);

Stretched 51 weeks and Term time 2year old, 3 & 4 Year Old and 30 hours Early years funding is also available. 

We are registered with all major childcare voucher providers.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
