Wivenhoe Park Day Nursery is situated in the beautiful parkland surroundings of our Colchester Campus providing care and education for children from three months to five years of age, all year round. We are Ofsted registered and accept early years funding as well as childcare vouchers. Staff and students can benefit from preferential rates.
About the nursery
We have a large team of qualified staff which includes:
Two Managers and one Deputy Manager
Two qualified early year’s teachers
A Forest Schools leader
An early year's artist
A Special Educational Needs lead
These additional staff work out of ratio and provide a complimentary level of quality and opportunity for the children to benefit from.
The nursery has six rooms so that the children can be grouped by age, this helps the staff create an environment suitable to the children’s needs and abilities. Each room has access to a beautiful outdoor learning environment, encouraging the children to play outside as often as possible.
We offer forest schools sessions to the children each week and also include a number of extra-curricular activities such as yoga, and Diddi Dance as a way to provide experiences that the children may not have participated in before. We are also an affiliated sing and sign nursery, where the children learn makaton to support their speech from the baby room upwards.
