The Nursery Environment

Kingfisher Day Nurseries Derby and Nottingham!
Welcome to our nurseries!

Thank you for enquiring about one of our nurseries. We are a small group of day nurseries aiming to provide the highest quality care for your child with our dedicated team of professionals.

The Nursery Environment

All our children are based in age banded rooms to ensure we can meet their needs. Children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which ensures they are learning through play, tailored to their individual needs and development. Our rooms are large, bright and airy and offer a wide range of activities on a daily basis i.e. creative play, sand, water, imaginative and construction areas, along with quieter areas for relaxation and concentration. There are also well stocked outdoor areas.


Our nurseries provide a range of nutritious meals to meet your child’s daily requirements. All meals are cooked on the premises using fresh produce wherever possible. Please see our menu’s displayed in nursery for further details.

Several staff have obtained or are working towards a degree in Early Years Education to enable us to offer a higher standard of care and education and keep up to date with current theories in practice.
