Your child will love spending their days at Hertford Day Nursery and Preschool, where our team of nurturing and experienced staff are dedicated to providing the very best care for children aged 3 months to 5 years.
At our beautiful purpose-built nursery, we have seven individual rooms tailored to each age group, as well as two additional extracurricular rooms.
We have three bright and stimulating baby rooms, with a separate sleeping room attached to the under 1s room, so your little one can enjoy peaceful naps. The rooms are spacious and contain a wide range of sensory resources to spark your little one’s natural curiosity.
In our toddler rooms, the children have their own toilets to support them with potty training. The rooms offer freeflow access to the gardens and offer exciting learning opportunities such as a reading corner and role-play area.
Our preschool rooms also offer direct access to the gardens, allowing the children to decide where they learn and play. In preschool, we help prepare your child for school, teaching the key skills they need to feel happy and confident to start the next step in their learning journey.
Children also enjoy Boogie Mites music sessions where they can learn about the world through music and song.
Your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum, designed by our own Early Years specialists.
Building on the foundations of the government’s EYFS curriculum, Bright Beginnings combines a wide range of activities to nurture and develop the skills your child needs to flourish and reach their full potential. This holistic yet personal approach supports each child’s wellbeing, development, and progress – whether that’s moving rooms or preparing them for school.
You can stay updated with your child’s day through our Bright Horizons Family app.
Your mini chef will love using our amazing children’s kitchen. In this spacious kitchen, everything is child-safe and low-level and includes a range of utensils, sinks, cookbooks, and cooking equipment, allowing your child to learn about recipe-making and healthy eating.
We have the option of turning this space into an art studio, where the children love getting creative and having fun using their imaginations.
Our beautifully landscaped garden provides a safe and stimulating environment for your little one to explore the great outdoors. The garden space has been thoughtfully designed with a range of exciting resources and activities for each age group and includes climbing frames, a water feature, trikes and scooters, a mud kitchen, a cosy sheltered area, and lots more.
We also have a separate garden space for our under 2s, which includes an outdoor classroom.
