Willow Day Nursery

Willow Day Nursery

Willow Day Nursery is located in Lichfield Road, Southtown, close to East Coast College's Great Yarmouth Campus. It's open daily (Mon-Fri) from 8am to 5.30pm, except bank holidays, inset days and the Christmas period and offers day care for up to 44 children aged 3 months to 5 years.

The nursery has 3 rooms: the Baby Room for 0-2 year olds, the Toddler Room for 2-3 year olds and the Playroom for the 3-5 year olds. This allows practitioners to focus on the learning needs of the individual curriculum stages (see Curriculum Stages - 0-2 Years, Curriculum Stages - 2-3 Years and Curriculum Stages - 3-5 Years). All the rooms have access to the nursery garden, which has climbing equipment, room for riding trikes, a mud kitchen, sand and digging pits, space for water play and a quiet area for relaxing or reading.

In its latest Ofsted inspection (February 2016) the nursery was found to be 'Good' in all areas, helping all children to make "good progress". Inspectors found that the staff take time to get to know children's needs and interests well, which helps them to settle quickly into nursery life. Children are engaged effectively and they are motivated to learn. Staff use skilful questions to encourage children to think and solve problems. Children have lots of opportunities for fresh air and exercise and learn about the importance of keeping themselves safe and healthy.

Fees range from £22.00 per half day to £35.20 for full day care (8.30am-4.30pm or 9.00-5.00pm) or £39.90 (8.00am to 5.30pm). Download our fees and sessional info sheet for more information.
