The Park Day Nursery and Preschool

Explore, learn, and have fun at our Watford nursery

Welcome to The Park Day Nursery and Preschool. Our Ofsted Good rated nursery in Watford is dedicated to giving children aged 3 months to 5 years the very best start. Our experienced team of long-standing staff can't wait to welcome you and your little one.

Inspiring and Spacious Rooms

Babies will feel right at home in our baby room, which is spread across three different rooms and includes a cosy sleep room.

Your toddler will have plenty of space, with facilities spread across three rooms, a toddler gym and a low-level toilet area to support your little one with toilet training.

In our preschool room, your little learner will love the different areas. With corners for reading and cooking, an art station and a dedicated science suite, their days will be busy and varied.

With our Ready for School Programme your child will learn the essential skills for them to take their next steps.

A 'Bright Beginning' for Every Child

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will get the best start to their schooling life through our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum.

Building on the foundations of the government's EYFS curriculum, it 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.

Active Learning in the Garden

Your child will love having access to our large, beautiful garden, which is separated into learning areas, so they always have the best resources for their development.

There is so much for your little one to discover, including toys, messy play, flower boxes and much more. We also have a lovely nature trail where we go for walks and explore creepy crawlies and the natural environment.
