 Our activities for children


At Daisy Chain, we offer a large variety of both indoor and outdoor activities.

These include drawing and painting, sand, water, role-play, construction activities, storytelling sessions, music and sing-a-longs.

All children are encouraged to try new skills, as well as developing the ones they already have.

We arrange for outside visitors to come into nursery to extend the children's experiences - Zoolab, Kixx footballsessions.

Further details about these areas and activities offered are available in the nursery and through discussion with the staff members.


In our 2017 Ofsted inspection, the summary report concluded:   

"Children achieve well in all aspects of their learning and development. They are prepared well for their future learning, including starting school"

"The manager and senior staff have high expectations of children's achievements during their time in nursery and set a clear direction for future improvements"

" parents appreciate the warm and caring environment staff create"

Daisy Chain has a large secure outdoor play area where children can enjoy safe and supervised play in a pleasant environment.

To the rear of the nursery is a small orchard where the children can develop their understanding of the natural world, and our sensory garden.
