Welcome to Millwood House Private Day Nursery

Welcome to Millwood House Private Day Nursery

Millwood House is an individual family owned private day nursery which has remained in the same hands since it was established in 1991. Our own family home has been extended and skilfully adapted for nursery use and we have the benefit of a large secure garden with a soft play area and artificial grass for children to enjoy all year round.

Much thought has been put into creating a 'home from home' ambiance which is cosy and loving for each child entrusted into our care whilst also being professional and stimulating. We are keen to work in partnership with parents to promote and support each child's development.

At Millwood House Day Nursery each child is encouraged to learn through play. We have a qualified, experienced and long serving Management Team and our Nursery Practitioners meet the needs of every child through high staff/child ratios. A key person system is designed to enable each individual child to have one to one time during the day with their key person. Also a learning journal is kept on each child which is shared with their parents. This journal follows the child as they progress through the nursery and is presented to them at their Graduation Ceremony when they leave to go to school.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) for all ages from 3 months to 5 years. This ensures that, through play and fun activities, our Nursery Practitioners cover the 7 Areas of learning:

  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World

Monday Munchies

We will be having educational cookery activities throughout the day, cooking with children helps them to develop a positive connection to all different types of food. Children will learn by touching, tasting, smelling and listening.

Forestry Friday

Children are to spend as much time as possible outside ( We have all in one waterproof suits). Young children have freedom outside, they can build their confidence and independence and also learn about the natural environment.



Babies are cared for in the Caterpillar Group until they are 2 years of age.



When they turn 3 years of age, they move to the Butterfly Group where they continue to have fun while they are prepared for school.
