Daisy Chain Childcare Nursery at Lofthouse est 2008
Daisy Chain Childcare at Lofthouse is a stunning purpose-built nursery set within Lofthouse Children’s Centre. The nursery rooms are well resourced, equipped and spacious; facilities include a fully equipped sensory room, community room and community garden. The childcare premises are designed to cater for young children’s needs with features that actively encourage children’s development. Because we believe children learn best through play, all resources are freely available at child height, encouraging independent play and self-choice.
There are three childcare rooms; a baby unit (Pixies), toddler unit (Imps) and pre-school classroom (Elves).
Each nursery room has its own sheltered outdoor play area designed for the children’s specific ages and stages of development, which allows for all year round outdoor play.
Daisy Chain Childcare at Lofthouse is well established and resourced
Each garden has specific areas of play that include mud kitchens, sand, water, books, sensory, heuristic, role play, imaginary play, construction areas, mark making, maths, music, letters & sounds as well as marked out areas for bikes and scooters.
There is also a small corner greenhouse throughout the spring and summer for growing plants, vegetables and herbs.
We are also extremely fortunate to have access to the Children’s Centre Garden, which allows the children to run around in a much larger area. All our outdoor play areas are secure and separate to that of the schools. We have CCTV cameras monitored by Rodillian Academy’s Facilities Team.
Our staff team
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.
