Westfields Day Nursery in Leckhampton, is located on Leckhampton Road, on the outskirts of Leckhampton, less than a mile from Cheltenham Town Centre and convenient for GCHQ, Cheltenham General Hospital and Cheltenham College. So although we refer to our nursery as a Leckhampton nursery, we’re actually a convenient solution for most Cheltenham parents.
We occupy a beautiful Victorian house, which has been refurbished and re-equipped to a very high standard, and offers wonderful large rooms that give a light airy feeling and provide lots of space in which children can play and learn. The Leckhampton nursery has a homely welcoming feel, and provides us with a large space for exciting outdoor play and exploration. Our large windows and large rooms induce a sense of awe and calm in staff, children and visitors alike.
We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies (3 months to 12 months), our toddlers (12 months to 24 months), our 2 -3 year olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for, nurtured and encouraged to explore and investigate.
If you visit our day nursery in Leckhampton, you’ll see that we enjoy our own extensive gardens and outdoor play space, with separate areas for our younger and older children. We have digging and planting areas in our ‘Veggie Patch’ which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. And we have ‘sand play’ areas and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials.
Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Leckhampton with such well-equipped outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest, including IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.
We are committed to remaining the best day nursery in Leckhampton, and to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.
We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:
• Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
• Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
• Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
• Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
• Children and adults having fun!
We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Westfields Day Nursery in Leckhampton.
