Our Story

In 1988, in a cosy white house in the heart of West Bridgford, we set out to create a thoughtful day care facility, where eventually, our own children would learn and thrive. Thirty-two years later, and with the help of our fantastic team, we are still committed to helping Nottingham’s little minds grow – with oodles of creativity, curiosity, and adventure.

Our core team of staff have been with us for over 15 years, offering continuity, whilst blending this with fresh approaches from our newer team members.

The White House Day Nursery (and Out of School Club) in West Bridgford's town centre, provides award-winning childcare for children aged 0 to 8 years, from 7.30 am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. We pride ourselves on our intuitive and individualistic approach to learning, that we've developed and nurtured throughout our 31 years of childcare.

Here are just SOME, of the nurseries Achievements....

  • The first nursery in Nottinghamshire to be awarded the National Day Nurseries Association’s “Millie's Mark”, a special endorsement for childcare providers that go above and beyond the requirements set out by Ofsted
