Welcome to Watermead Day Nursery and Pre-School

As parents ourselves, we have high expectations when it comes to professional childcare.  This is reflected in the attention to detail we have taken in developing and nurturing Watermead Day Nursery from its conception over 14 years ago, into an Ofsted OUTSTANDING setting, and something feedback confirms. 

 

Watermead offers unquestionably the best childcare for babies (0 Years) through to pre-school (5 years) to the residents of Loughborough and beyond.  It is also  the only setting in the region inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of childcare.  Key to this philosophy is the understanding of the important roles imagination and discovery play in early childhood learning.

Watermead offers a secure, safe environment, across two adjacent settings situated on a quiet residential street.  Both settings are protected by CCTV in every room and access to both sites is restricted by a bio-metric finger print entry system – The only one employed by a nursery within the region.

Children in our care can develop skills and experience activities that will have a direct impact on their future.  They can experience the great outdoors through our Forest School, learn to play sports with our resident physical education coach, be stimulated in Kimble’s Music and Movement classes and even develop their artistic skills through use of one of our two dedicated ateliers (art rooms).  Everything we do is there to provide a stimulus rich environment where little minds can grow and we are constantly introducing and developing new ways of doing this based on feedback from the curriculum, parents and the children too.

Parental input is a particularly big focus for us. Over the years this has helped to shape the nursery and the care provided through regular parental sessions and community involvement.  After all, a parent has the best idea of how to care for their children, and we want to make the child’s experience as enjoyable, and memorable, as possible whilst with us – like it would be at home.

"As a mother of two young children, who are both Watermead children, I understand the needs of parents looking, not just for child care, but for something extra special...a place where their children will be happy, nurtured and cared for from the moment they arrive.  That's what i'm extremely proud to offer at Watermead”

What's been going on at Watermead Day Nursery and Pre-School?

Here at Watermead Day Nursery we're feeling pretty proud of ourselves. This year we entered the annual national Nursery World Awards competition, where we have been selected as finalists for:

"Nursery of the Year" and "Enabling Environment."

We are absolutely thrilled because this is the first time we have put ourselves forward and we were up against other nurseries, pre-schools, playgroups and community groups across the UK.

Company Director Sarah Allen said: "it's really humbling to have been named as finalists in two categories in the national Nursery World Awards.  We are thrilled that our hard work and dedication is being recognised by such a highly regarded awards scheme.  We are lucky to have such a wonderful team of staff at Watermead Day Nursery led by a strong management team and believe that our commitment to continuous improvement is why we have been shortlisted as finalists.  We're really looking forward to finding out if we've secured the top spot at the awards ceremony in September and if we do it will be a true reflection on the wonderful staff and their dedication to the children at the nursery."
