Here at Poppet’s Day Nursery we understand that your children are the most important people in your world. As parents ourselves we appreciate how crucial it is for you to have total peace of mind and to know that your child will be happy and well cared for when you can’t be there.
At ‘Poppets’ the children will spend their days in a stimulating, safe, warm and caring environment allowing them to enjoy their time, thrive and progress.If you are interested in your child joining our nursery please download out parent’s pack.Ofsted Number: EY482482
The ethos at Poppet’s Day Nursery is to provide an extension to the children’s own home environment and to try and emulate some of the activities, play and fun that you would want to incorporate in your little one’s day. In other words: – ‘If you can’t be there, we can.’In addition to this, we will provide the children with an innovative timetable and a dedicated team who will gently encourage their educational progress through every key stage of the early learning curriculum. During the time spent with us your children will develop all the skills they need to make a smooth transition to ‘Big School’.
As a local couple we will be ‘hands on’ in our approach and commitment to the nursery school and we cherish the opportunity to care for our friends and neighbour’s children. We promise to always support you our parents in wanting the best for your youngsters, our staff in providing that care, and most importantly the development and happiness of our ‘Poppets’.

The owners and staff at Poppets have been exemplary in handling this (COVID) crisis and I just could not have done my job with out you all. I have always praised the nursery not to mention recommended yourselves to other parents and professional bodies, but during the crisis you really did shine, so thank you
After viewing a few local nurseries Poppets really stands out, our daughter has now been going to Poppets for a month and we are so thrilled how happy and excited she is to go to nursery. All the staff are so friendly and very helpful. The facilities are brilliant. I couldn’t recommend this nursery highly enough.
Amazing nursery. Viewed a few but as soon as we went inside I knew this was the one. Ava loves it here and has really settled in. Always tells me all the fun things she has done. Staff are great and nice healthy food. Highly recommend Poppets (not too highly though as don’t want it to get so busy that its full and no space for my youngest in 18 months)
We recently moved to the area and were a bit worried about moving the girls to a new nursery but we really couldn’t be happier at Poppets. My eldest has gone from hating going to “school” at her old nursery to not wanting to leave Poppets when I come to pick her up. The staff are all wonderful and genuinely care for the kids, and the activites they put on are amazing – imaginative, creative and fun. Thanks guys!
