The Swallowdale setting is open 8.30 - 15.30.


The Nursery Teacher and Nursery Manager work closely together with the staff team to provide a wealth of learning opportunities for the children to experience both in and outdoors. The nursery is situated in the grounds of Swallowdale Primary School and is based in a open plan modular building with a seperate kitchen area. The building provides defined learning areas and offers free flow play to a secure outdoor area. The outdoor environment is divided into different areas which include loose parts play, sensory experiences, physical and imaginary play. Access to the nursery is gained via a secure gate attached to the school.

The nursery was awarded 'Good' in our latest OFSTED inspection in September 2022.

At our settings we use Tapestry which is a secure online learning journal which can be accessed via their website or an app. It allows us to record and share a child’s development, interests, learning and experiences through the use of photos, videos and written observations. We also use it as a platform to be able to share relevant documents, information with families such as upcoming events, setting information and invoicing. As parent/carers you are able to view and comment on the content we add and also share your own experiences and media from home too. All information is stored securely and can be downloaded or printed via the Tapestry website as a keepsake of the child’s journey with us.
