Coronavirus (Covid 19):
SCDA are working hard to ensure we minimise any risks of Covid 19 to the people who access our services, staff and volunteers. We are following the latest guidance from government to ensure our staff, volunteers and service users stay safe and healthy.
We continue to maintain our service delivery, where possible and we are adapting delivery so that we can continue to help local people. We will advise of any changes and reductions to our services, for example telephone appointments.

We recently celebrated our 14 year anniversary and are proud to have a reputation for affordable high quality child care for children from 3 months old to 5 year olds and an experienced team of staff, many of whom have worked at Denton Island Nursery for 12 years or more.
We are open 50 weeks of the year between 8am – 6pm with a range of start and collection times to coincide with finishing times of all local schools to help meet the needs of busy parents. Denton Island Nursery is set in a tranquil island setting close to the town centre with its own ample parking. We have a lovely large rear garden with flower beds, sand pit, bike track, children’s planting area plus shaded decked area which the babies and children enjoy every day.

We are very pleased to be rated as a ‘Good’ provider in our recent Ofsted inspection in June 2019:
‘The managers and staff are passionate, caring and attentive. They create a positive environment where children feel happy, valued and secure.’
‘Good relationships between the staff and parents enable them to share a wide range of information, helping them to provide a consistent approach to supporting children’s learning.’
‘Children have daily opportunities to enjoy the outside area to develop good physical skills. They care for the plants that they have grown and safely explore ways of moving across climbing equipment.’
