St Ives Nursery
St Ives Nursery is a private day care nursery located in the centre of St Ives, conveniently placed close to both the A14 for access to Cambridge and easy rail links for commuters into London. Our beautiful converted Victorian house allows us to foster our ethos of providing our children with a ‘home from home’ environment. We are open full-time from 8:00am – 6:00pm, caring for children from 3 months to 5 years. We adhere to the strict standards set by Ofsted working within the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) curriculum.
Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn. We aim to provide an environment rich in quality experiences, where each child is cared for and valued as a uniquely precious individual with specific needs and talents.
We know that children learn best through playing and exploring, which is why, in addition to following the EYFS Curriculum, we offer a comprehensive extra-curricular programme which includes: Wake Up Shake – Music and Movement Sessions; Gardening; Cookery and Sports Sessions with Key Sports.
We also love to get out and about in our local community, with outings to the park or to feed the ducks; visiting the library and local market; and spending time with the residents of our local care home.
