Our childcare approach

The primary aim of Daisy Chain Nursery is to develop and build upon the existing qualities and skills of all children under our care.

Our day nursery places great emphasis on creating a happy and stable environment in which you can leave your children in complete confidence.

Our specific aims are to:

  • Provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for your child
  • Provide the highest quality child-care for parents
  • Encourage an early love of learning through play
  • Gently prepare your child for school with pre-school activities
  • Work towards the Early Learning Goals for children's learning

We try to offer flexibility wherever possible, and children can either attend full-time or part-time.

Our day nursery operates an equal opportunities policy, and all children, adults and staff are treated as individuals, taking into account all religious, ethnic, cultural, and other preferences and origins.     


Certificates of Achievement

At Daisy Chain Nursery, we believe in rewarding the children for their achievements as this helps build their confidence.

If your child paints a good picture or behaves well during lunch for example, we will reward them with one of our 'Well Done' stamps or certificates, which they can take home. We have found this is an excellent way to reward achievement and promote good behaviour.

Our history

Daisy Chain Nursery was founded in 1997 by Claire Heslop and her family when they purchased and then converted Daisy Cottage, which was formerly a residential home, into a dedicated childcare facility.

Claire had previously been Manager at another nursery in Yorkshire, after having been trained at Princess Christian Nursery Nurse School in Manchester.
