I recently refurbished nursery in Callards offering high-quality care and education for children aged 3 months to 5 years, with an added holiday club for children aged up to 11 years.
Our well-qualified team of highly motivated, enthusiastic and experienced staff work together to provide a well-balanced programme of fun activities and learning experiences, within a carefully planned curriculum with our unique Ready for School programme. Fostering an enjoyment of early literacy and maths, with our Growing Readers, Writers and Mathematicians Enhancement, helping children to recognise letters, words and numbers in their environment.
Callands nursery has a spacious outdoor play area with separate gardens for each age group. Children enjoy using balance bikes, mini rocking horses, hula-hoops and the wooden tepee.
Support for your child also extends beyond our regular nursery hours, as we also offer a holiday club for children aged 3 months to 11 years where they can participate in a range of fun activities.
Our day nursery and preschool in Callands is conveniently located near the M62/A49 and within close proximity to Gemini Retail Park. There is a buggy storage area and an on-site car park to make pick-up and drop-off as convenient as possible. In addition, our nursery falls within the catchment area of some of the best local schools in the neighbourhood.
With all-inclusive fees, which means you have less to pack on a busy morning, our onsite meals are prepared with nutrition in mind. From healthy lunches and snacks to your chosen branded nappies and wipes included in the fees.
The nursery has been awarded an Ofsted rating of ‘Good’ for their commitment to high quality childcare and education.

I have worked at Callands for nearly 20 years. I started as a student working in various rooms to gain experience and once qualified to NVQ Level 3, I was based in the preschool room as a Nursery Nurse. I quickly became Supervisor for the preschool unit and in 2003 I progressed to Deputy Nursery Manager. In 2012 I became the Nursery Manager for Callands.
We have a great team, and we continue to grow and succeed - this is evident with our latest “Good” OFSTED result. I am passionate about my role within the nursery and my team, the children in our care and their families.
I have worked at Callands Day Nursery and Preschool for 18 years. I started as a student, before becoming a base member of staff in the baby room. I then had the opportunity to work in the toddler room.
I went on maternity leave in 2007 and came back part time, based in preschool room before I was then offered the toddler room leader full time.
After 2 years I then took the opportunity to develop the children's school readiness by becoming preschool room leader.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my husband and my son Alfie. We go for walks with our dog, Wallace. As a family we enjoy visiting Chester Zoo and we also like to spend time spend time in Blackpool with the family.
