Providing the perfect environment for very young children to take their first steps into the wider world
A new baby is a very exciting time for you and your family. These first years are truly special as we watch the day to day development of our children and take pleasure from all their ‘first’ moments.
Your child’s first years provide the foundation for future success in so many ways and as Early Years specialists, ensuring your child is nurtured whilst providing opportunities for your child to thrive and to flourish underpins our philosophy and approach at Berkhamsted Day Nursery.
We prioritise the development of positive relationships from a child’s first day in our nursery, so that each child feels loved and cared for, thereby enabling them to grow into confident and independent toddlers.
In acknowledgement of the research that tells us how important secure relationships are for early child development and early attachment, we believe in ensuring every child has a strong sense of belonging and a feeling of being part of our family. Our children settle very quickly as our practitioners connect with each child during their settling sessions and then continue to grow and develop those relationships throughout their time with us.
Our fully qualified team have the skills and expertise to provide the very best start for your baby, but more than that, they are passionate about early years education and development. They are committed to ensuring our children are not only cared for but have access to activities and learning that will prepare them for the transition from baby to toddler, and then on to school.
Our nursery based at our Haresfoot campus alongside our Pre-Prep School, provides an exceptional setting which many parents have described as a magical place. The green spaces, our woods and the variety of facilities makes each day different for the children, providing a wonderful start to their educational journey.
We warmly invite you to contact us at and look forward to meeting you and your baby.
