Humpty Dumpty Day Nursery and Pre-School is one of the longest established, private children’s day nursery providers in the area. We provide full day care for children from as early as 6 weeks old up to school age.

Both of our Nurseries are located in convenient settings within their own private grounds, both providing Forest School and Pre-School experiences. We believe in a happy and relaxed environment so that your child feels at home and secure. The approach is friendly and informal creating an atmosphere conducive to healthy social interaction and sound emotional and physical development in their early years.

Our garden areas are completely enclosed, providing a safe area for outside play. For the children’s enjoyment there is a wide selection of outside toys. Our ethos is that outdoor play is a fundamental part of the children’s daily curriculum even if it’s raining!

All children are individuals and the daily routines give them the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of activities, which are tailored to suit their needs.

Our commitment to your child

Every child is a unique child

Every child is a unique child

We believe that every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. The commitments are focused around development; inclusion; safety; and health and wellbeing.

Developing positive relationships

Developing positive relationships

We believe that children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships both with parents and key people here in our Nursery Team. The commitments are focused around respect, partnership with parents and supporting and learning.

Providing stimulating and enabling environments

Providing stimulating and enabling environments

We believe that our Nursery environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning.  Our commitments are focused around observation, assessment and planning, support for every child, the learning environment and the wider context – group to group and pre-school to school transitions, continuity and, where appropriate, multi-agency working.

Encouraging learning and development

Encouraging learning and development

We believe that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. All areas of learning and development are very important to us and we see them as significantly inter-related.
