Horizons Day Nursery & Pre-School was founded by a husband and wife team and opened in September 2000. Their 20 years of teaching experience has helped them to consistently deliver exceptionally high standards of childcare at both sites of the nursery.
Horizons Day is a happy and friendly environment where children are encouraged to be responsible and caring individuals. We treat each child as an individual and provide a setting which reflects and values the varied backgrounds of our children and staff.
Our team of early years practitioners will work in partnership with parents/carers to support children as they enjoy learning through play. Your input is vital as we nuture every step of a child's learning and development; from crawling, playing and exploring to beginning to use numbers and letters. Together we will build a strong foundation for your child's journey to school readiness.
We aim to help you set the foundation of a child's journey to become school ready.

Key Person / Continuity of Care
Each child is assigned a Key Person. A Key Person works closely with the parents and as part of a wider team within the nursery. Their role is to help ensure that their key child's care and development is tailored to meet their individual needs. They will also work with other team members to help the child become familiar with the nursery and build a relationship with the child's parents.
All children learn through the Early Years Foundation Stage ('EYFS'). Children have access to indoor and outdoor spaces throughout the day as part of their daily routine.
We value outdoor play. Activities are planned to enhance the children's experience and learning. This includes developing the children's environmental awareness and physical skills in a fun and secure setting.
