Our rooms

At The Lodge we have three stages to ensure that your child will feel comfortable and confident. The move from each room will depend on the development and progress of your child. Contact Lodge Day Nursery for further information.


The baby room is a welcoming, calming space which caters for all your baby’s needs. There is plenty of time and attention focused on each child with high staff to child ratios. With defined areas for older and younger babies children can experience a wide variety of activities, from reading areas to educational toys. We will follow your child’s home routine and they will have their own allocated cot for the days they are with us. Your baby’s bed linen, kept in their own bag, is washed and provided by us.


Children between the ages of 1 – 2 will get the opportunity to explore and create, playing with sensory toys and enjoying messy play. There is story time, dancing, crafting and lots of opportunities to start becoming independent, both inside and outside in our wonderful garden which can be used all year round.


The Adventurers, from 2 – 3 year olds, follow more of a routine. After breakfast they have play and activities, both directed and free flow, and there are opportunities for lots of outdoor time, straight outside the door or in our woodland area a short walk away. The environment has a range of stimulating and exciting activities to fire their imagination so they can learn through play.

Pre School

Pre School

The Pre-schoolers, our 3-4 year olds, learn through well-planned and unstructured play with opportunities to explore in the excellent outdoor play area, developing independent skills whilst accessing free flow provision, as well as starting some more gently structured activities to help ease their transition into the Reception Class . They have subject specialist sessions during term time for PE, Music, Dance, Drama and Library time, and continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in the seven areas of learning.
