New Lower Fees, Same Premium Childcare
Hinckley Day Nursery and Preschool, formerly known as Windmill Pre-school & Day Nursery, is rated Outstanding by OFSTED, and is a purpose-built, single-level nursery that provides children with quality care. We have been named as a top 20 nursery in the East Midlands by daynurseries.co.uk.
Within our nursery, we have five separate rooms: a baby room, toddler room, two nurseries and pre-school. All the rooms are bright and airy with plenty of natural light and access to outside areas. Our state of the art adventure garden is well equipped to ensure that children fully engage in outdoor learning. The outside area is divided into three play areas designed to support each particular age group. Each area provides lots of space for physical development and opportunities for children to develop an interest in nature and the world around them.
Our experienced, qualified staff ensure the children are cared for throughout their nursery journey and 90% of our staff are qualified to Level 3 or above and regularly trained. We offer parents a range of opportunities to engage in partnership with us from parents’ evenings, regular 'stay and play' sessions, room specific resource bags and our very popular lending library. The nursery is located within distance to local schools such as Richmond Primary School and Battling Brook Primary School.

I have worked at Windmill Day Nursery since 1996 where during my time I have gradually worked my way from a nursery nurse to my current position of assistant manager. Throughout these years I have worked with all age groups enjoying seeing how the children all develop differently and gain their own interests. I was very proud to be part of our first Outstanding Ofsted rating in September 2013 which was such an exciting day for the staff and children.
As part of my role I enjoy not knowing what each day will bring, its always a mystery! Above all I enjoy seeing the children laugh and smile each day.
I have worked at Windmill Day Nursery since June 2009 after I finished studying my BTEC level 3 in early years. I started as a nursery nurse in the toddler room and progressed to my current position as assistant manager.
Throughout this time I have also studied further and now hold a degree in Early Years with Warwick University. I have worked mainly in the younger rooms but enjoy going to see the children learning in all rooms. One of my favourite aspects of my job is watching the children engage excitedly in new activities and watching the learning that they take from it.
Outside of work I spend lots of time with my family and friends and enjoy shopping, reading and music.
