About Daisies

Daisies Kindergarten is a private facility providing both part-and full-time places for children from birth to school age.  We are registered to accommodate 60 children.  We do not operate a waiting list.

All children are welcome to our setting and we will endeavour to accommodate any special needs.

The nursery closes for 9 public holidays throughout the year, and these dates are displayed in the nursery foyer.  Excluding these dates, the nursery will be open from 7.30am - 6pm, Monday - Friday for 52 weeks of the year.  In the event of any change to opening hours (at Christmas, New Year etc), advance notice will be given and again, the times displayed in the nursery foyer.

This is reviewed regularly to meet the needs of working parents. 

Under the Regulations of Care Act (2001), the Care Commission was formed in 2002.  The Care Commission have 6 key principles, which make up their standards.  Daisies aim to follow, respect and adhere to these at all times. 

  • We aim to provide quality childcare for children aged 0-5 years, ensuring that the individual needs of each child are met.
  • We aim to provide a safe, secure and welcoming environment for all.
  • We aim to provide a stimulating learning environment, offering a range of resources to suit the ages of our children.
  • We offer a curriculum for our 3-5 year old children that complies with local and national guidelines.
  • We will encourage the children to be actively involved in their own personal health and hygiene.
  • In accordance with national guidelines, we believe that each child should eat 5 fruit and vegetable portions per day.  With this in mind, we provide 5 portions during each full-time session, and 3 portions during each part-time session.
  • We aim to involve parents/carers with their child's progress and development.
  • The nursery will play an active part in the community and liase with local organisations.
  • We will treat all individuals with dignity and respect, and value all ethnic backgrounds, languages, cultures and faiths.
  • We will evaluate our staff on a regular basis to ensure children receive the highest possible standards of care.  Prospective employees go through a rigorous interview process to ensure suitability for the position.
