The Day Nursery at Drayton House

Our Day Nursery offers places to babies between six months and approximately one year old. We provide a warm and welcoming environment where young children quickly feel safe, comfortable and secure.


We welcome and respect parents' views about their babies, and work with parents to ensure their little ones find the transition from home to day nursery as smooth as possible.

Progress and communication

Once your baby has joined Drayton House, we keep you informed about your child's day-to-day progress with our daily record sheets as well as verbal feedback from their nursery nurses.

Communication is, of course, a priority throughout our pre-school, however, we understand how difficult it can be to leave your little one somewhere for the first time, and support you as best we can as both children and parents make the adjustment.

Daily happenings in the Day Nursery

At Drayton House, we recognise the importance of music, tactile stimulation, along with songs and stories for our babies as part of our daily baby routine. As a result, we have a wide variety of toys and equipment appropriate to each stage of development as your baby grows with us.

Our day is a structured one with set times for eating, sleeping, activities, and play. We believe that a clear routine is an essential part of providing a safe and secure environment for all the children in our care.

We also believe in the importance of fresh air in the growing process, and ensure that our little ones visit their own soft-surface playground at least twice a day - except when it's raining or very hot/cold of course!

Next steps...

When our Day Nursery babies get to the toddling stage and are ready to become more active, they move through to our Transition room where we continue to build their confidence and develop their independence...
