IVY HOUSE NURSERIES
Part of the future childcare nursery group –
Expanding Children’s Minds – One Adventure at a time
Established by Hollie and Olivia, the original Ivy House Nursery, Station Approach opened in 2021, bringing exceptional care, learning and play opportunities for children aged 3 months through to 5 years.
The Early Years shape our children’s future, and we want to ensure that all children have the best opportunity to flourish, learn and grow during their time with us. As Early Years professionals it is our duty to support each and every child, allowing them to reach their full potential. Each learning journey looks different and we embrace this in our every day provision and practice.
We pride ourselves on communication with our parents and carers and want you to feel involved and consulted with us as we embark upon this magical journey together. We know how important choosing the best possible environment for your child is, after all our own children experienced life at Ivy House too.
We are excited to share our ethos and commitment with more children and families as we continue to spread our love for Early Years with you all.
Why Choose Us?
We know how daunting the decision can be when having to choose a nursery setting. Searching for that ‘feeling’ when you walk into a nursery that the team will nurture your little one just as you would, it’s hugely personal.
We pride ourselves on our approach, by encouraging everyone to develop at their own pace and individual needs, in a safe, nurturing, and creative environment.
We are registered with Ofsted, Local Authorities and members of the National Day Nurseries Association.
Full of love and laughter, providing the perfect foundation for any child’s journey with us.
From the moment your little ones walk through the door we promise to nurture them just as you would. We encourage every step of their development with kindness and care, ensuring they have the strongest of foundations.
The Curiosity Approach
Ivy House Nurseries are inspired by the Curiosity Approach which combines a magical mixture of ingredients to create a very special pedagogy.
It encourages confidence and resilience and is a beautiful way of creating awe and wonder in Early Childhood.
Space to Grow
We understand the importance of fresh, stimulating and exciting environments and we invest a lot of time into each space. We also ensure that the children take time to adjust to their new environment at the pace that works for them.
Little tummies full of healthy home cooked food is very important to us and we know just how important it is for children to enjoy healthy, balanced and nutritious diets.
Don’t just take our word for it!
” We’re really pleased with our choice and would highly recommend Ivy house if you’re looking for a family feel nursery centred around child’s play.”
“I have been very impressed with the care and love my daughter has been shown. Practitioners use their local outdoor green spaces for some excellent adventure walks, a trip to the woods seems a firm favourite.
Regular updates on an online application means we get to see how our daughter’s day is going, with pictures to accompany this.”
” A fantastic team of people who have created a great environment for the kids. They put a huge amount of effort into providing a wide variety of activities and learning opportunities for the kids every day.“
” A home from home with such lovely staff. The staff are always welcoming and it’s an inspiring environment for little ones. I’m often pleasantly surprised at the activities that are set up and the genuine care for the children.
I was really reassured by how the staff helped with settling in.
I would absolutely recommend.”
” Our little boy has settled so well with the most caring team who really do go above and beyond.
The nursery is beautiful and the homely and personal approach is something that is really important to us.”
