Wilmington Day Nursery and Preschool is a 'day nurseries top 10' Wilmington children's day nursery is located in the village of Wilmington, near Dartford in Kent, and is set in the grounds of two secondary schools. We've received 3 consecutive Ofsted 'Outstanding' ratings, won Netmums 'favourite day nursery' in the Childcare Awards 2014, won the NMT 'Nursery Indoor Learning Environment' Award 2015 and have been awarded a Top 10 Nursery in the South East from daynurseries.co.uk for two years running.
Located close to Bexley, Dartford and Crayford stations, the nursery is a five-minute drive from the A2 and the M25. The children's nursery has been established for over ten years and we are very proud of our long-serving nursery staff. Many of our families come to the nursery on recommendations and it is often reassuring when parents arrive and meet those same members of staff. The children's nursery can take 103 children from three months to five years.
We have five rooms: a baby/toddler room, nursery room and preschool. The nursery provides a friendly, family feel where everyone knows each other. The nursery also has two outside areas, including one specifically for the under-twos. Both areas have an all-weather surface, meaning the ground is safe in all conditions. The outside area also attracts lots of wildlife, providing many learning opportunities for the children. The nursery works in conjunction with the parents, inviting them to share their work experiences with the children, offering lending libraries for the families and inviting them to open days at weekends. This is so that working parents have more time to look through learning journals, speak to key people and, of course, play!
We also offer eight-week childcare 'settling in' sessions for new parents and children. This enables families to build a relationship with the nursery prior to the child actually starting. We provide parents with regular updates on their child's progress as this offers reassurance and comfort at a key time. Our babies and toddlers have a daily contact book so parents and the key people can share thoughts and information. Our quarterly parents evenings are a further opportunity to strengthen the partnership between parents and carers. We will be delighted to welcome you to Wilmington Day Nursery and Preschool in Dartford Heath.
