The Great Outdoors
Yellow Wellies Day Nursery is in the heart of Durham City, but don’t be fooled…. We are surrounded by a city woodland that is just magical.
Accessed by a secret round gate (what else?), children of all ages enjoy exploring the space, investigating the natural world and challenging themselves physically.
Our hill teaches children about balance and contour, our trees teach children about seasons and living things, our allotment teaches children about healthy food (and enjoying an imaginary cup of tea in the shed after an afternoon of digging!), our mud kitchen teaches children about science and sensory exploration, our building area teaches children about imaginary play and cooperation, our plants teach children about caring and nurturing, our camp fire teaches children about keeping themselves safe.
We don’t tell the children any of this, they figure this out themselves. Safe in the knowledge that they are supported and encouraged to play and explore.
We are a family, we enjoy spending time together, seeing the world for the first time through someone else’s eyes, breathing in the fresh air, feeling the weather, sharing the moments….
Yellow Wellies… a magical place.
Places available for all ages (babies to 5), come and visit us to see how special we are. Judged by Ofsted as outstanding, we are here to support all children individually, meeting their needs and supporting their learning.
