Denton Island Nursery

We are a community based nursery committed to providing a fun, vibrant, messy environment in which our long serving, loyal and friendly staff team provide children rich opportunities for challenge and risk, learning though play and from experiencing the natural and social world around them building future foundations.

Every child in our nursery has the right to:

  • Be themselves and be valued for who they are
  • Be treated with respect and listened to
  • Feel welcome and be safe, protected and cared for
  • Make friends and be happy
  • Learn how to make healthy choices and become independent
  • Have adults who will give them encouragement, support and time to explore and learn through play
  • Have fun discovering their world and getting messy
  • Be stimulated to learn new skills and knowledge
  • Feel secure to take risks and try out new challenges

We recently celebrated our 15 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.
