Colets Nursery

We opened our Nursery in the summer of 2006 and it continues to go from strength to strength.

Our aim is to create a home-from-home, caring atmosphere with fun and friendly carers, where the children come first. Our philosophy is to work with parents to develop “Happy, Healthy Children.”

Our unique, purpose-built facility was designed with just this in mind and the result is a bright, welcoming environment where the children are safe, loved and can grow into confident and happy individuals.

Colets’ Nursery follows the Governments’ Early Years Foundation Stage throughout the children’s time with us.

There are four base rooms geared to the developmental stages of each individual child:

Caterpillars, Ladybirds, Butterflies and Busy Bees

Each room is carefully planned and equipped to provide a relaxed environment in which the children can learn, socialise and develop at their own pace.

In addition, the children are able to use Colets’ “Soft Play” area as part of their nursery day. We also offer football sessions at no extra cost.  Swimming lessons, Jo Jingle sessions, Theatre Bug sessions and Spanish are also available at an additional cost and subject to availability.

Nursery Garden

The nursery has its own secure garden which was built using natural materials in order to extend the opportunities available for the children’s learning and development. The children use the garden daily and it has a separate area for our babies and younger children in order that they too can get the most out of being outdoors. As well as the day-to-day experiences the children have just from being outside, the garden has two large built-in sandpits, a bike track, pirate ship and several planting boxes.


The Nursery building and individual rooms are all equipped with CCTV to create a safe and secure environment and the homerooms have also been designed with vision panels to add an increased level of overall awareness to ensure the well-being of all our children. Entry to each room is via a pre-programmed access card for staff with videophone door entry for parents.

The nursery opens from 7.30am to 6.30pm with full days or full weeks to choose from.

Ofsted Report 2016

As some of you may be aware Colets was recently visited by Ofsted.  Our previous Ofsted was 5 years ago so we were quite overdue. 

Colets’ Nursery, Crèche and Juniors are very pleased to announce that we have maintained our ‘Good’ reputation for both care and education for your children.

The Ofsted inspectors were very complimentary of our Centre and Junior provision and gave good feedback in the report. If you wish to discuss anything regarding it please just get in touch.

Please click here to see attached our Ofsted report.

Any actions from Ofsted are already being put into place and we strive to continue the excellent care we provide for all of your children.

As the children leave nursery to go on to school they often return to their second home – Colets  - to take part in junior activities and holiday camps amongst familiar and much-loved surroundings.
