Daisy Chain Childcare at Adel is a bright and friendly nursery situated in a quiet leafy setting. The purpose-built, single-story nursery is designed to cater for young children’s needs with features that actively encourage child development. Because we believe children learn best through play, all resources are freely available at child height, encouraging independent play and self-choice.
Varied activities include
There are four childcare rooms; two Baby Units (Pixies & Imps), an over 2’s Room (Sprites) and a pre-school room (Elves).
Each childcare room offers direct access to a safe outdoor play areas which includes:
The nursery also enjoys access to the school’s nature garden and use of the school playing field for special events such as Sport’s Day.
Our well qualified staff team all share a love of working with children and follow a programme of continuous personal development. Each child has a dedicated key person who provides daily feedback on children’s progress and development.
Our on-site cook provides delicious, nutritious meals from freshly prepared local produce with a 5 weekly rolling menu. We are proud holders of a 5 Star Hygiene rating for Environmental Health.
The nursery is situated within school grounds allowing us to offer a “wrap around” service for the school’s nursery in addition to the full daycare service for the wider community.
Daisy Chain Childcare was the first private daycare company to be accredited with a GOLD award with the Leeds Quality Assurance Scheme in 2005, an award endorsed by the Investors in Children Kitemark. Daisy Chain Childcare received the Investors in People accreditation in 2011.

Martha has worked in Childcare for over 9 years and has gained vast experience with all age groups from birth upwards. For the last 5 years, Martha has worked at Daisy Chain in Adel as the room leader in the Under-two’s unit. Here she has helped to settle many young children and their families into the nursery. Many of these children have progressed through Daisy Chain and into school and Martha has then continued to welcome their siblings.
Martha has an NVQ in Early Years Level 3 and whilst working at Daisy Chain she has gone on to complete her Level 3 in Management. This has given her the opportunity to become a Deputy alongside the Manager for the last 3 years. This stands Martha in good stead to take over the role of Manager at this current time.
Martha lives with her partner and they are planning on getting married in the near future and they live alongside their 2 ragdoll cats. Martha comes from a strong educational family where her parents and grandparents were all teachers and headteachers. She also has several aunts and uncles who work in the teaching profession.
Martha is bi-lingual in Spanish as she spent her youth growing up in Spain, she, therefore, sought a qualification in teaching English as an additional language to foreign students. She is passionate about supporting children who may have English as an additional language and strives to deliver outstanding care and education to children and families.
Education and Development for your child in a nurturing setting are at the core of what we do.
