PARENT/STAFF PARTNERSHIP

We care for a maximum of 33 children between the ages of 3 months to 5 years.

Unique Partnership Between Parents and Staff


Working together

Windmill Day Nursery was founded in 1980 as a unique partnership between parents and staff to provide a nurturing environment for babies and pre-school children. We believe that this partnership contributes to our high ratio of qualified caring staff and ensures that our ‘home from home’ ethos is maintained in all areas of the nursery.

The best environment

We were rated as ‘Good’ in our last Ofsted inspection, but we do not just rely on Ofsted to ensure we give our children the best care possible. We have no owner and are run by parents and therefore we constantly ask if we are providing the best environment for all our children to grow, develop and have fun. Please take a look at our recommendations page for feedback from parents of children currently attending the nursery.


A warm welcome

We are a not-for-profit organisation, a registered charity, making us unique in the local area.
We hope that our website will give you some idea of the warm welcome that awaits your child at Windmill Day Nursery. If you would like to arrange a visit*, or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Flexible care

Our Nursery is open from 8am until 6pm 51 weeks of the year and we can provide flexible care to suit your family’s needs. We also offer an Early Drop-off facility from 7.30am. Our fees include meals, snacks and drinks.

Please note that for the safety and security of the children in our care, visits should be by prior appointment only.


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. 

  • Thank you for looking after my baby and thank you for helping me also, the harder days with lots of tears! Ill never forget your support.

  • My daughter has a constant spring in her step, is happy and completely content in herself  you have been a part of making those things happen. You all do a WONDERFUL job!
