Nursery Tour

Windmill Day Nursery is a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. It is run through a unique partnership between the professional staff and parents.

Windmill Day Nursery is a not-for-profit organisation!

As a registered charity, Windmill Day Nursery is a not-for-profit organisation meaning that every penny earned is invested back into the nursery. This enables us to offer competitive fee rates, and it means that every financial decision that is made, is made because it is best for the children.

The Windmill Day Nursery is registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (charity number: 281653). Click here for further information on the Charity Commission and how it regulates charities.

A management committee is elected annually at the AGM held every March. A majority of members have to be parents with children still at the nursery. All parents have the opportunity to either stand for election or nominate other members. This means that parents have a direct means of influencing the development of the nursery and the care and facilities it provides.

The committee is a vital part of the nursery, who support the staff and provide input regarding what we would like to see as parents, for example, we organised for a wall to be removed to make our Panda room a much larger space so it provides the children with more opportunities to explore and develop. The refurbishment included new flooring in all the playrooms and new blinds in each of the rooms to keep the sun’s glare at bay.

Our role is best described as a combination of a PTA and the Governors for schools as we also fundraise throughout the year, organising family fun days, raffles and many other activities which raise well used funds and provide enjoyable events for our hard working parents.

Thank you for your lovely comments !

  • Thank you so much for looking after my daughter and helping her grow in confidence, picking her up when she fell, giving cuddles, wiping faces and bums and drying tears. She loves every moment. 

  • Our son has only been with you for short while but all of you have had such a massive impact on our lives. 

  • My son is really going to miss you. He went into your care as a baby and he's leaving as a little man who can count and spell his name! A part of each of you will always be with him because of all the wonderful things you've taught him e.g. music, baking, crafts, the chicks etc.
