Kiddies Academy Nursery


The Kiddies Academy has been owned by the current owner, Joanne Hopkins, since 2002.


The nursery has recently moved to a new purpose built building, which can accommodate 48 children. We have a lovely outside play area which backs onto a school field, which we also have the use of. We have a large digging area as well as a baby garden and a grassed area.

Our baby room is bright and airy and can take up to 6 babies in any one session. It has a homely feel and because of the small number of babies we accommodate it has a very personalised approach. Our baby room leader is level 5 qualified and is currently working towards her Early Years Degree in Early Years Studies.

Our toddler room is bright and spacious with plenty of lovely equipment for the children to play with. We have 12 children in this room with three members of staff, all of which are qualified. The children have direct access to the garden from this room and have lots of lovely learning opportunities open to them.

Our main pre-school room is for children aged 3 and above. It is a very large open plan room and is also very bright and airy and leads directly onto the our outdoor area. We operate a free - flow system during our free play time, so the children decide if they would like to play outside or inside. We encourage as much outdoor play as possible and ensure that there are lots of learning opportunities outside as well as inside. This room can hold up to 30 children with a staff to child ratio of at least 1 to 8, it is often higher than this. All permanent members of staff in this room hold relevant qualifications.

I cant thank you enough"
