KINGSWOOD Day Nursery - Alderholt

Our Team:

 We are always looking for outstanding people to join our team. Please call us today, we would love to hear from you, 01425 656451


All of our lovely practitioners have been specially chosen to care for and educate your children on a daily basis and make their earliest years the happiest ones. I returned back to work in the nursery when Euan was 5 months old, and the only way I could have ever returned to work was to know that the people caring for my son were people I could trust and feel confident in 110%.

Adopting my second son, has been all the more heart warming knowing he will be cared for and loved by the people I value and adore working at KingsWood. 

I am very fortunate at KingsWood to be working alongside my family members, plus old and new friends. Kate, Claire, Stacey, Dee and Sandra have been part of the team since KingsWood opened over 13 years ago!


It is the staff that add the special magic to your children’s day and therefore practitioners are selected very carefully having successfully completed a rigorous recruitment process.

All practitioners hold an enhanced DBS check (police check)

 Practitioners are trained in paediatric first aid, and health and safety

All room leaders have at least a level 3 childcare qualification

 2 practitioners are forest school leaders

All practitioners have safeguarding/child protection knowledge and training 

Training is on going for all staff. The training received is above and beyond any other setting. 


Settling sessions are a lovely way of introducing your child and your family to the nursery and practitioners gradually.
Settling sessions are held before joining nursery, this is a fantastic opportunity to build strong, friendly relationships with practitioners and other parents/carers who come into contact with KingsWood. Settling sessions are a time for you and your child to come along and play and tell practitioners about your home routines and preferences.
Each child at KingsWood is assigned a key person. The role of a key person is to  ensure that every child’s care is tailored to meet their individual needs, and your wishes. They also help that child become familiar with the setting, offering a settled relationship for the child and build a relationship with their parents/carers.

Feedback from our recent 2014 Outstanding Ofsted report included; "The staff provide a rich environment for the children to enjoy. The highly dedicated staff team plan and set up each learning environment indoors and out. Highly dedicated staff support children to make excellent progress. The secure attachments between children and their key person support children to feel secure and confident as they learn."
