What daycare facilities should you look for when choosing a nursery?

Finding the right fit for your child is very important when deciding on a daycare provider. Below are some of the facilities you should consider when choosing a nursery.

Childcare needs

  • Safe and clean environment: A nursery must adhere to health and safety regulations and ensure a clean and hygienic daycare environment is always maintained.
  • Sleeping areas: For babies and younger children, nurseries should have designated quiet spaces for naps and rest.
  • Changing facilities: The daycare facility will have specific areas for nappy changes.
  • Mealtimes: We provide healthy meals and snacks in our nurseries, delivered fresh each day. 

Learning and indoor play

  • Designated areas: Daycare nurseries will have separate spaces for different activities throughout the day, such as reading, playing and learning. 
  • Age-appropriate toys and materials: This can be blocks, puzzles, toys and books, as well as arts and crafts supplies, and sensory play items, such as sand and water.
  • Structured learning activities: Qualified staff should lead activities that encourage development in areas including language, maths and social skills.
  • Educational resources: Age appropriate materials, including the use of technology, support nursery staff at a daycare facility in preparing children for moving on to school. 

Outdoor play

  • Secure outdoor play areas: This might be a playground with age appropriate climbing frames, slides, swings and toys plus a dedicated garden space.
  • Opportunities for physical activity: Nursery daycare providers encourage outdoor play and learning as a way for children to develop gross motor skills and explore nature.

Promoting healthy eating

When you send your child to a daycare nursery facility, you want to know they will be eating well. We believe that healthy food habits are not just about providing nutritious food but also encouraging children to be adventurous in their food choices. The meals in our nurseries are all made with fresh, tasty ingredients, inspiring children to try new flavours and textures, so that they develop healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.
