Our care

The Nursery – a simple name for a unique childhood experience. Based on the foundation of more than 20 years’ experience in childcare and Early Years education, owner Jackie Hardie has created The Nursery to offer children the very best start in life.

Along with her dedicated, enthusiastic and professional team, Jackie ensures children are offered a huge range of experiences and opportunities that set it apart from other childcare settings. With everything from trips to forest school and ballet classes, right through to an Early Reading & Phonics scheme, every aspect of your child’s emotional development, education and sense of wellbeing is looked after.

Everything at The Nursery starts with the needs of the children: from bespoke garden play equipment and landscaped gardens, to healthy, freshly prepared meals that meet every dietary requirement. Each child is an individual and is uniquely cared for and encouraged to be the best they can be.

Set just off the High Street, The Nursery has a huge sense of local community, too. With regular trips to the nearby Marina and Lake Grounds, as well as frequent visits to local shops and services, children gain an understanding about the world in which they live, as well as developing personal confidence and a sense of belonging.

The Nursery has been consistently rated Outstanding by OFSTED since it opened. With experience running an Early Years consultancy business helping childcare settings nationally and internationally achieve excellence, Jackie has extremely high standards and expects the highest quality of care and education to be represented in The Nursery. This vision is supported by her exceptional nursery team, who always aim to exceed expectations.

“The entire team’s dedication to our daughter’s care has been far more than we could have expected and hoped for. It’s always great to know that your child is in the safest of hands when they can’t be in yours. Thank you for being such a big part of her life – she couldn’t have had a better start.” – Lola’s mum
