Toots Day Nursery was built in 1990 and opened by Liz Adkins and Angela Duffell, who continue to manage the nursery, along with Julie Cave and our team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff. Between us we have gained many years of experience across a variety of childcare settings, and having children of our own we feel has given us a deeper insight into the needs of working parents.

We offer full and part time places to 44 children from six months to five years. The nursery is an attractive, purpose-built design with three distinct and spacious self contained areas for a smooth and gentle progression throughout your child’s time at nursery. There are two large, well equipped outdoor play areas, as well as a dedicated Baby garden, with a combination of safety surfacing, paved playground, and importantly in a city nursery, a lawn and gardening area. Both areas are secure and secluded.

Kids at Tube

Each and every child is special to us; we want them to enjoy the freedom to develop their personalities, abilities and potential. Children who have attended nursery are generally better prepared for starting school. We believe in making nursery life a balance so the children have time to be active and to rest, to play and learn indoors and outside, to be sociable and also discover things by themselves.


We aim:

  • To welcome, involve and inform parents on their child’s wellbeing and development
  • To plan for each child’s individual development by following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework
  • To provide a bright, stimulating and inspiring child-friendly environment
