Story

There's Lots To Discover!

Developed as part of the newly built Leisurezone complex built for the London Olympics 2012, our purpose built Harlow nursery opened in Summer 2010. Floor to ceiling windows, opening out to a secure garden area, allow children freeflow access between the rooms and outside areas.

Garden Area

Explorers

We have twelve baby places in our explorers room. Our ratio of staff to carers is generous to ensure that our youngest Dizzy Ducks can enjoy lots of one to one care and attention throughout the day. Our Explorers have direct access to a secure Baby Garden which allows the young babies to play safely away from the older children. The floor to ceiling windows give a great sense of space. The baby garden makes a great place for storytime and picnics in the summertime!

Inventors

From approximately 2 years old children can access our Inventors room. With direct access onto our “Outdoor Classroom” children have the ability to take their learning outside. Each day the outside area is set up with similar activities to inside. The staff ensure that curriculum planning meets the individual needs of the child and ensures that they have an excellent foundation in Early Learning before they leave us for school. Inventors is split into “Key Groups” to ensure that the staff can plan effectively for their Key Children and make activities relevant to their children’s learning needs.

Sensory Room

A fabulous multi-sensory room is used throughout the day to offer children additional play resources. At sleeptime, this room doubles up into a wonderfully relaxing place for children to recharge before an afternoon of fun activities!

Garden Area

Freya loves everyone in the explorers team! She spends lots of time with Kim and loves cuddles and playing with her! She loves Holly, Hayleigh and Andrea too and enjoys reading books and singing with them too! Freya walked for the 1st time with Kim and Holly!

Jamie Wall is without question an amazing guy. He helped our Son come on leaps and bounds since he joined Dizzy Ducks. After having a really horrible experience with another Harlow Nursery, when we put Finley into Dizzy Ducks, meeting Jamie is what won our decision. He has time to speak to us parents and update us on our Son’s progress. What I love most is when Finley comes home he is always talking about Jamie. All us parents love him as much as the children do.
