Day Nurseries

A day nursery is a childcare centre that looks after children from birth to five years, though the exact age ranges vary from nursery to nursery. Some nurseries don't take babies or young toddlers, or they may only take children up to four years old. 

Staff at day nurseries are trained to develop a stimulating environment that will help your child to thrive. They will help your child learn, using a cirriculum specially designed for children under five.

Day nurseries cater for parents with full-time or part-time jobs, so are usually open from about 7am until 7pm.

Although day nurseries are often referred to simply as 'nurseries', they're different from nursery schools. Nursery schools are for children between three years and five years old, and are often attached to a preschool or primary school.
