At our day nursery for children three months to 5 years we pride ourselves in our welcoming, friendly staff team. We provide a home from home environment, which offers a truly positive experience for all our children and parents.
We have a highly trained and knowledgeable staff team that are always available to talk to and willing to support all our children. Harpenden children's day nursery is located in Harpenden town centre, just a two-minute walk from the train station and only a 20-minute train ride into London Kings Cross, which is great for commuting parents. Set in a stunning listed building, originally the town's police station. Each room is filled with specially made wooden resources and furniture to encourage children to learn and develop. Interactive whiteboards and touch-screen computers help children to grow in confidence as they discover the world around them.
Our garden includes a climbing frame, water feature, mud kitchen area and a separate cosy and safe baby garden. We take the children outdoors on a daily basis. Our Nursery and Pre-School rooms have the added benefit of being able to have direct access to garden space, so we can offer free-flow access to the children.
Our delicious, healthy and nutritious food, sourced from trusted suppliers is prepared and cooked by our very own chef. Menus change seasonally and cater for all dietary and religious needs. Our kitchen holds a 5* EHO rating for food safety and hygiene. Please see the menus tab above for our current menu. We are located within the catchment of many infant schools which include St Dominic’s, Roundwood Park, Crabtree, The Grove, St Nicholas’, High Beeches, Lea Primary, Manland, Sauncey Wood and Wood End.
