About Us

The nursery has been in operation since 1995 and has since then been run within the same family. Our aim is to provide high quality childcare and education in a homely, friendly and safe environment. To inspire young minds, celebrate diversity, to be inclusive, to be respectful and promote wellbeing and a healthy lifestyle. This is our latest Ofsted Report.

At Kingsmead we promote equality of opportunity for children and their families. We seek to broaden and deepen children’s experiences by following the Early Years Foundation Stage. The EYFS framework has four core areas:

A Unique Child
Positive Relationships
Enabling Environments and
Learning and Development, which itself includes seven areas:

communication and language
physical development
personal, social and emotional development
understanding the world and
expressive arts and design

We monitor our practice and have regular meetings to discuss and decide how to improve our practice and procedures.


  • Create a safe and secure environment, promoting the welfare of all children in our care.
  • Nurturing each child’s unique qualities and potential, encouraging them to achieve and develop through play within a well resourced setting.
  • Working in partnership with parents by establishing constructive relationships whilst maintaining clear professional boundaries. Working with outside childcare agencies.
  • Create a work environment that encourages continued professional development and diversity.
  • Recruit committed, caring and enthusiastic staff that have a genuine passion for working in childcare.
  • To provide healthy, home cooked quality food that is well balanced and takes into consideration special dietary and cultural needs.

The nursery grounds are dotted with different animals to discover.

Luckily all animals are made of safe materials and this time the chickens are safe from the fox.
