Birdies Day Nursery is exactly what it says ‘A Nursery.’
Knowing your child is happy is the most important thing in the world for every parent.
At Birdies we have 30 years experience and with our qualified & proactive staff we are a place where children of all ages are more than happy to stay, play, learn and grow in confidence. We aim to remove the worry and anguish that all parents feel when leaving their child by giving you the confidence and knowledge that your child is in the best possible care.
The nursery provides outstanding facilities for children aged from 3 months through to pre-school age, and we have 4 dedicated nursery areas for 4 different age ranges. Each room has been carefully designed to create a safe and secure homely environment for your child.

At Birdies we don’t make rash promises or statements like teaching your child how to speak a foreign language - we leave that up to you, the parent, if you so wish. What we do promise however is loads of TLC with plenty of fun filled days. We pride ourselves on the ability to give your child encouragement to develop at their own pace, a sense of security with our routine, creative learning through play and an array of social skills and friendships. All the things needed to set them up for life
(Check out our gallery for an inside view of the 'not afraid to get messy and stuck in' creative experiences we provide! We have messy time covered!)
LUNCHES AND SNACKS
At Birdies children can enjoy a mid-morning toast and milk/juice
A home cooked balanced mid-day meal is provided along with afternoon snack and our daily menus are on display. At lunch time children are encouraged to eat and never forced. We take these opportunities to teach table manners and the correct use of cutlery. The children have regular visits from a dental hygienist and they are all tough the importance of teeth cleaning after meal times!
For babies we provide liquidised meals and desserts when they are ready for solids. Parents supply their own formula bottles, baby packets of food for dinners and teas and preferred desserts/snacks.
Breakfast and evening meals are not provided. Special dietary requirements can also be catered for!
Babies have their own monitored cot room for undisturbed sleeping times.These areas are separate for older children which are supervised at all times.
WHAT TO WEAR AT BIRDIES
Children need to be dressed in clothes which make it possible for the to enjoy a hard days play without too much restriction or fear of getting messy! An outdoor coat and shoes are required so we can have fun no matter what the weather. Here at Birdies we have our own sweatshirts, polo shirts and jogging bottoms available for purchase should you wish to avail of them. These are highly recommended for both comfort and wear and tear. We also request that children bring both slippers and outdoor shoes to nursery - its nice to be able to kick off the heavy shoes and just relax!
Once your child starts Birdies a full welcome pack will be provided which outlines all of our policies, with information on relevant forms and fees.
Phone our lovely manager Dianne on 02892 661 776 - she will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have or book you in for a tour of birdies and a chat!
