More about us

Nivan Lodge provide wholehearted commitment and comprehensive child care with structured teacher and child-led educational and creative activities as well as space and equipment for physical activities and play, with a library corner for individual quiet times, and group activities such as circle time and singing.


We have a good understanding of children's lives and their social contexts, basing our teaching around them. Supporting and encouraging personal development, autonomy and creativity are top priorities for us. Developing social interaction and understanding differences in others also plays an important role in our work. British values are important to us.


Our aim is to support each child through his or her own development, learning at their own pace.


Every child has an allocated keyperson who takes a specific interest in ensuring that each child develops and progresses well and that their wellbeing and happiness in the nursery environment is high.


All-round care for your child means that we provide:

  • a safe and welcoming environment
  • the expertise and resources to further the global development of each child in the seven areas of learning enhancing and encouraging:
  • Speech, language and communication skills
  • The skills to become independent and free thinking



Safety is  a top priority and we work continuously to ensure every child is safe at all times. A 25 point safety check is carried out every day. All staff are DBS checked, visitors to the nursery are only by prior appointment and accompanied by a staff member at all times, doors are double-checked and a member of staff is specifically assigned to the single task of registering every child into the nursery. Doors are staffed continuously when children are being collected and no child is allowed to leave the building without a parent or other named person.

The nursery is a mobile free zone. 

All staff are Pediatric First-Aid trained.
