About the employer

Rothersthorpe day nursery is an educational nursery rather than just a day care facility. We aim to provide a learning environment, which encourages a high degree of autonomy in all children as well as gaining confidence and self-esteem. We give support to enable children to develop the skills they need to express themselves and record their experiences and feelings. The nursery is established in a delightful converted school with a substantial and secure outside play area providing a stimulating, caring and happy environment. We provide outstanding facilities for children aged 3 months to 5 years. At Rothersthorpe day nursery, we fully realise and appreciate the extensive value of play in a child’s all round development, hence, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is aimed at and incorporates meeting the EYFS standards. Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. We develop a partnership with parents to achieve mutual respect and understanding of our roles. Parents are welcome at all times in the nursery, and are given ample opportunity to discuss their child’s progress with us.
