Derriford Baby Area New Explorers Room  

The nursery is open from 7am to 6pm for 51 weeks of the year, Monday to Friday and we offer flexible sessions to best meet parents needs. 

Happy Days at Derriford supports a free flow of movement between the indoor and outdoor environment, which is equipped with the latest resources and equipment to ensure that your child gets the very best from their nursery time. Staff support all children to get the most enjoyment from outdoor experiences.  Our outdoor spaces include growing areas and our own woodland area for a wide range of exploratory activities.

We have three Explorer rooms within the new nursery for children aged approximately 3 months to 2 years, with one of these rooms designed and equipped for non-mobile babies.

Explorers enjoy a warm, cosy space for young children, where they use their imagination, learning begins, and making friends. 

The nursery has carefully selected furniture and resources designed to specifically support children’s physical development; developing muscle control and co-ordination. The rooms provide different areas for the children to explore and enjoy such as a home corner, messy areas, sensory area and a cosy corner. We have a lovely sleep area for our babies to rest ready for their next session of fun activities

Our Adventurer rooms, which are specially designed provision for children aged over 2 years, provide dynamic and stimulating environments to stretch your child’s creativity, imagination and development.

There are always exciting activities through-out the day and whilst your child is having fun, their key person will be observing them to enable effective planning for the next stage of their learning.

We have two nursery chefs who prepare fresh and nutritious meals; children are involved in food preparation and learn how to be independent at mealtimes.
