Bishop Auckland site - bright, welcoming nursery with fabulous outdoor space
Where can I start to explain the wonderful experiences that our children have in Bishop Auckland?
First and foremost our small team of highly qualified Practitioners are skilled and very experienced. They care deeply about every child; spending time to get to know the family; establishing a bond with the child; getting to know their individual needs and preferences; while ensuring that every child feels loved, is happy, is confident and enjoys their time with us. They are masters of cuddles, experts in children's welfare and wizards of learning.
Our children are fabulous. They amaze us every day - trying new things; working together; looking after each other; joining in; getting sticky and muddy and letting their imaginations run wild.
Babies & Twos
We have a very small team of Practitioners, who establish secure bonds with our babies and toddlers, getting to know their individual needs. Working closely with parents, we ensure that we understand your baby; their individual quirks and preferences and your routine at home.
We have a wide-range of carefully selected resources for babies and toddlers to safely explore independently and with a caring adult.
We ensure that we take every opportunity to support their development and that they enjoy finding new things - making new connections and start to make sense of their new world.
We have familiar objects for them to explore, such as mirrored pebbles to admire themselves in, sticky goo to touch and feel, paint to make a mess with, jigsaws to figure out, books to cuddle up with and locks to jangle!

Walker Drive, Bishop Auckland DL14 6QL
We are easy to access from the town and from the A688 by car or bus and 5 minutes drive from Tindale Retail park.
From around two and a half-years-old, our children join the pre-school. Our pre-school is unique; every aspect of it has been carefully designed to support children's well-being, their desire to explore and learn; their contribution to their nursery community, their social skills, their communication and language; their understanding of the world and their self-esteem.
Led by our qualified teachers, who specialise in pre-school education, we have an engaging indoor and outdoor space, designed to spark children's interest and imagination. Our pre-school gives children the rare opportunity to lead their own learning, to choose how they would like to learn and what they would like to do. We have regular forest school sessions, encouraging the children to learn in and about the outdoors and have regular visits to the library.
We carefully monitor children's progress, alongside parents to ensure that every child is prepared for school with the independence, self-help skills and confidence that they need.
