Hucknall Day Nursery - Rising 5s

Professional and quality care for your child

The pre-school nursery is situated in a large single story building set in over two acres of land. There is a large landscaped garden together with a fully enclosed play area with a hard surface area for the use of bikes.

The nursery has been designed so that the children have the use of several areas that all have their own specific use.

The main area is used purely for art, craft and imaginative play along with sand and water.

Another area is used for books, puzzles, construction, number work, music and movement.

And finally a quiet area has been designed for children to work in small groups. This area offers our computer which is programmed with educational software.
