About Us

Zippys welcomes every child into our big and extended family like environment. We do our best to create a home away from home atmosphere, a safe, child friendly, caring and warm environment where children can grow, learn through play, explore and discover their little and our BIG planet.

Children at ZIPPYS enjoy a unique, stimulating and education-led experience and are valued and encouraged to develop their own personalities and to acquire the knowledge and skills they will need when they enter the next stage of their formal learning.

At Zippys Day Nursery we will

  • Provide excellent care in a supportive and friendly setting
  • Respect every child's individuality
  • Recognise, nurture and value each child's potential. Promote a positive attitude to learning

One unique thing about Zippys is that we value parental involvement and aim to keep our parents informed about any activity that will support the child development and involved them with all the happenings at ZIPPYS. We believe that, it is essential to build and maintain a close partnership between home and nursery, building the foundations of trust that our parents value so highly.

Our Facilities

Our setting was designed specifically with children and parents in mind and not undermining the comfort our warm and friendly staff deserve.

At the Entrance, you will be welcomed in our beautiful and warm reception area, you will be greeted by a friendly member of staff, who will direct or answer any queries you may have we have parent board with useful information about the setting or events.

Daily news, pictures and videos are displayed on our reception screen allowing parents to enjoy the activity of the day at the nursery or notices that required their attention.

The nursery is gated and secured with a controlled entry system.

The rooms in our setting are designed for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. The decoration is bright and welcoming with a comfortable, warm and home like feeling. Every room has a wide range of stimulating books, toys, games and equipment for any activity a child want to enjoy.

Our Curriculum

As children are curios to learn and embrace every part of their environment at Zippys we have used this natural curiosity and enthusiasm for life to design our curriculum based around learning through play.

Every child is treated as an individual and encouraged to learn at his or her own pace. Our warm, friendly environment allows children to develop self-confidence and independence as they begin their social development.

Through both child-led play and adult-led activities, your child will build positive relationships with nursery staff and learn to play alongside and make friends with other children.
