Camperdown Nursery has been operating for over 40 years and is well-established and highly regarded in the local community. We offer high quality childcare and education to children aged 2 to 5 years in a caring, home from home, enriched learning environment.
We are a small unit enabling our staff to really get to know the children as individuals, ensuring that each child's interests and developmental needs are met. We are very outdoor orientated and have free-flow to our wonderful outdoor areas, as well as taking every opportunity to take the children out into the local community and down to the forest for expeditions and adventures.
Feel free to get in touch with us to find out more or if you have any questions at all. You are welcome to come and visit us at the nursery any time. Just give us a ring on 01875 813313.

Our Mission Statement
At Camperdown we provide a safe, happy and secure environment in which your child can learn and thrive through play. Our caring and professional staff offer constant support and security for children in their care, whilst helping them to develop and grow in fun-filled surroundings.
We create an ethos where mutual trust, respect and confidence prevails throughout the nursery. It is important to us to develop excellent relationships between parents and staff enabling children to move happily between home and nursery. Everyone who attends our nursery feels welcomed, valued, safe and secure.
Our nursery has a highly dedicated and committed team, specially chosen for their qualities and experience. We have a high child:staff ratio which means staff really get to know your children well and are able to meet their developmental needs and interests. Staff are given constant support in their day to day roles, as well as being encouraged to undertake further training to enhance their knowledge.
The nursery will provide morning and afternoon snacks for your child. Served on a rotating menu basis our healthy snacks can consist of anything from toast, fruit and vegetables to sampling home baking the children have done that day. For children who attend nursery over the lunch period, parents are asked to provide a packed lunch.
