Derby Day Nursery and Preschool (formerly Riverside Day Nursery) provides quality care and education with a home-from-home environment.
In terms of catchment area, the nearest school to us is Alvaston. Due to our location, we have children who attend schools throughout Derby and outside. Our wide-ranging and excellent resources provide many opportunities for the children to take part in various activities. The children make their own choices and learn through play. The nursery is situated at the David Lloyd Club and we have the use of their facilities, including the dance studio and soft play areas. We are also very lucky to have a large, well equipped outdoor play area, with balcony, which is suitable to be used in all weathers.
All the children have a key person who will observe and track their learning and development and plan activities based on their interests and needs. We provide a delicious healthy menu, and have our own cook on site who can adapt the menu to any dietary need. Derby Nursery is an ideal location for parents who work in the city, and also for commuters. We are close to the motorway and a five-minute walk from the train station.
Where possible we look to offer flexible booking patterns and a range of funding options, including the government's 30 hours funded childcare* provision. To request pricing and availability, please request a call back by clicking the button below.

I have worked in child care for 20 years; I started as a room leader in a Pre-school and worked my way up to Manager. I joined Riverside 5 years ago as a Deputy Manager and enjoy my time working across all rooms supporting staff, children and their families.
The Bright Horizons passion and enthusiasm for providing high-quality care isn’t just common knowledge within our own business – we’ve also gained some impressive accolades from external sources for excellence as both a childcare provider, and as an employer. We are the only childcare company to have been listed for the last 11 years as one of the country’s top 50 “Great Places to Work” by the Great Place to Work Institute.
