Nursery Facilities

At Beechcroft Day Nursery the facility is divided into two main rooms and also has an outside play area.

We have our own specially designated area for our youngest members of the setting, providing a tranquil and unique area for them to settle and develop during their early stages of life. Our baby area is equipped with a vast number of quality toys and provides a multi-sensory environment to give them best start in life. We have one member of staff allocated for every three children, enabling close relationships to be formed and vast learning opportunities to be provided. This room provides a bright, stimulating, welcoming environment, in which they can explore, have fun and learn through play. Each child has a key worker who carefully monitors progress and development. Every child will have their own progress folder, which their key worker will complete and parents are welcome to access this to view their child’s development at any time.


This large and spacious room caters for children from 24 months to 38 months which accesses the outdoor area, therefore children have the opportunity to free-flow between the indoor and outdoor play area throughout the day. The areas created and the activities provided are all based upon the child’s interests which are identified by the key worker. We have a range of stimulating areas around the rooms for children to explore which are regularly adapted to ensure engagement and excitement. The room consists of a messy zone, mark making area, a construction area, role play, cosy book corner and a sensory where natural resources are provided for children to expose, to be curious and to imagine. When your child turns two years old they will have a Progress Check; this will be a written assessment about your child’s development and give you the opportunity to meet your child’s key person to discuss their progress.


When your child is ready to move up to the Preschool Room they will benefit from carefully planned early years educational subjects (using the EYFS framework), and free play. They will develop social skills, independence and self-esteem. Our children are prepared for school by developing a range of literacy and numeracy skills and taking part in physical education opportunities. We encourage a range of activities including arts and crafts, sand and water, music, dance, IT, reading and of course the popular role-play area.


Our stimulating outdoor area provides numerous opportunities for children to explore. Their learning is enhanced with this well-equipped specially designed area. Outdoor play enables young children to learn about the world and environment and also develops their physical motor skills.
