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 10 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), as well as afterschool club (5 - 8 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 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 with our resident art teacher. 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.
We are pleased to announce that the stunning and stimulating environment offered at Brook Farm House now has an additional, self contained outdoor space, THE LODGE. Follow its construction HERE.
The building will provide an amazing additional outdoor facility where the children can free flow between the gardens and a dry, heated space. This will increase the opportunities and experiences available at Watermead Day Nursery for both the pre-school and wrap round children.
