Rotherly Day Nursery moved into brand new, purpose built accommodation on a different part of The Westgate site in October 2013.  It provides a warm, homely atmosphere, quality care and stimulation in all areas of child development .... and of course it has well qualified, experienced and loyal staff who constantly strive to deliver outstanding quality care and FUNtastic learning opportunities ... both inside and out!

Our children are nurtured within a play-based curriculum which is broad, planned and balanced, indoors and outdoors, with both adult-led and child-initiated learning.

We recognise that each child is unique and will develop at their own pace in a variety of ways. ‘Each child is on their own Learning Journey’.
