Welcome to

Daintry Hall

We appreciate the dilemma parents face as they search for the very best in childcare & education. Our own experience of finding the best possible care for our own children has been drawn upon as we created Daintry Hall Day Nursery, in 1999 based in Congleton, Cheshire.

Outdoor play equipment encourages children to practice their physical skills and to gain more confidence in their abilities. Well supervised activities allow the children to experiment with a variety of climbing apparatus, tents and tunnels and sit and ride toys. Team members organise games to encourage cooperation, sharing and turn taking amongst the children as well as more relaxing times with teddy bears picnics and story times on the lawn!

Our Facilities

At Daintry Hall we have three great indoor spaces.
Your child will grow, develop and progress through each room,
where life just keeps getting more interesting,
involving, stimulating and exciting.
Outdoor play is vital for child development,

Our Activites

and help them to develop key social skills. Activities are
built around the interests of the children
and designed to engage them and encourage them.

Our Food and drink

Daintry Hall provided a healthy and balanced diet for your child, with food prepared fresh each day. At Daintry Hall mealtimes are a happy, relaxed and sociable occasion and an opportunity to learn.

We have an ethical, sustainable approach to food. Our Chef, has worked to develop our Plot to Plate policy.

What does this mean? It means that we can produce and offer a healthy, balanced menu while supporting the
local economy, reducing our carbon footprint and paying the highest respect to the
wellfare of producers, animals and the quality of the land.

Exploring

The Great Outdoors

Outdoor play is vital for child development. At Daintry Hall we have a large, secure garden for the children to explore. Within the nursery curriculum, activities planned extend to the outdoors.

We aim to create a loving, homely and nurturing environment that offers children stimulating play and encourages them to explore the world about them in complete safety. Most importantly we hope to provide children with many happy memories from their nursery experience and a place they love to come and play with their friends and where parents are happy and reassured to leave them.

Caring for your

Babies & Toddlers

Our Baby & Toddler Unit is designed to be bright, cheerful and stimulating for children aged from birth to approximately two years. We have been careful to provide a variety of musical and educational toys to enhance your childs development.

Parents are asked to supply nappies and a complete named change of clothes for their child. For the bottle fed baby we would ask for a supply of sterilised bottles and preferred brand of formula milk on a daily basis.

The

Playroom

At approximatley two years of age your child will move into the playroom. The transition from the Baby & Toddler Unit is sensitively managed and timed according to your childs individual needs.

At this stage, children are beginning to learn social skills and enjoy being together and making friends. Playing with other children is an important new area for learning; activities encourage children to cooperate with one another and understand about taking turns. The role play centre and book corner provide and ideal place to sit and chat with our friends. Within the Playroom children are encouraged to explore a wide range of open ended resources at their own pace. They use their creativity through exploration and discovery as they experiment with natural materials such as wood, cones, seeds and leaves.

Our

Pre-School

At Daintry Hall we work with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which encompasses all areas of learning. Children are encouraged to go at their own pace and follow their own interests, using a variety of different mediums and every day objects to experiment with and to make their own decisions and choices.

At circle time children 'show' objects from home and tell their friends about them, increasing their self confidence and ability to listen to others. Organised group activities encourage the children to co-operate, take turns and share with their friends. Children are encouraged to have a love of books and enjoy regular story times with the use of puppets, story sacks and other props. They look forward to music time and to using the instruments they have made! Children soon build up a repertoire of songs and rhymes they will share with you at home!
