Welcome to Millwood House Private Day Nursery

Welcome to Millwood House Private Day Nursery

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.

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 in EYFS Curriculum when planning their activities;

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

Caterpillars Group - Babies & Toddlers

Babies under 3 years are cared for in the Caterpillars Group. The staff ratio in this unit is 1:3. Each baby has his/her own Learning Journal. Plenty of outdoor play activities take place daily in the large garden.

Butterflies Group - Pre-School

When they turn 3 years of age, they move to the Butterflies Group where they are prepared for school. The staff ratio for the pre-school unit is 1:8. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage throughout the nursery.


Monday Munchies

We have 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 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.
