At Ibstock Day Nursery, we aim to provide a safe, welcoming and friendly environment for children to achieve excellence through play and learning. We recognise the individuality of all children and their entitlement to high quality care and education. We aim to ensure the atmosphere in our provision enables all children to feel valued, secure and included.

Toddler room

Our Happy Hedgehogs room offers an exciting environment for children from the age of 18-36 months. As we continue to follow the EYFS Prime Areas we offer a wide range of adult-led and child initiated activities with an embedded key person system. At this age your child is achieving many milestones so with the support of our experienced staff members, communication groups, and working in partnership with parents your child will be supported and celebrated.


Our Pre-School Room is a stimulating environment for children from 3 years up to school age. Our staff support your child’s individuality and independence whilst guiding them through play. The Wise Owls have access to many areas to develop their interests, fine and gross motor skills and ‘being school ready’. Although the main learning is through play we offer small group times with each child’s key person as well as communication groups. We offer FREE 15 to 30 hour places for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

During their time at pre-school, children will:

  • Become self-confident;
  • Take an interest in new things;
  • Learn to tell the difference between right and wrong;
  • Dress and undress themselves;
  • Talk with confidence in sharing their thoughts and feelings.
  • Enjoy stories, songs and poems, hearing and repeating sounds and linking them to the alphabet;
  • Become curious learners.
  • Develop an understanding of maths through stories, songs, games and imaginative play;
  • Learn to move confidently and control their body;
  • Most of all have FUN!
