Our Milford children's day nursery near Stafford has a warm, homely environment. We're based in a lovely converted Victorian school, brightly refurbished and surrounded by fields, farms and animals in Walton on the Hill on the outskirts of Stafford. You'll find us on one of the main roads into Stafford with a local bus route outside.
All age groups have their own rooms and outdoor play areas to enable maximum development with peers. We work alongside parents and carers to ensure you feel comfortable leaving your child with us. We involve parents in their children’s planning and daily routines, by holding play and stay sessions once a month. We also hold parents' evenings twice a year and special events such as Autumn fairs, Christmas plays and Workshops for parents. The nursery environment is rich in resources for all age ranges, the room sizes increase as the age ranges increase which ensures children are then ready for large classes at school. All rooms have Community Playthings furniture and toys which provide the children with a more neutral environment to learn in.
Our unique Healthy Hearts and Minds activities provide inspirational and engaging learning experiences using the innovative and well established Boogie Mites and myHappymind programmes.
In addition, the nursery takes part in outings to local places including the Shirehall sensory room, local libraries, farms and parks. Our stunning new adventure garden is available to children in all weathers to support their educational and physical development. We are located within the catchment of many schools which include Berkswich Primary School, Oakridge Primary School and Leosowes Primary School.
Our friendly, experienced and highly qualified staff are on hand to conduct a personal nursery tour at a time to suit you. *Please note free funded places for 3-4-year-olds are limited and subject to availability. Please contact the nursery manager for more information.

I have worked at Milford Day Nursery since 2004 when I started as a Nursery Nurse; I worked my way up to Nursery Manager in 2012. I hold a certificate in Early Years practice and love every minute I am at work supporting and caring for all of our families. I have my own son who I love spending time with and watching him grow.
