About Us


The Village Day Nursery and pre school is situated in the centre of East Leake, within easy reach of the Cities of Nottingham and Derby; East Midlands Airport, Loughborough, Melton Mowbray and the surrounding villages are also just a short drive away.

The nursery was purpose built and provides a bright, homely and secure environment. It is served by two, free, car parking areas one opposite to and one at the rear of the building. Uniquely the day nursery is air conditioned throughout, providing a closely controlled environment for the areas created for the different age groups. The layout has been carefully set up to provide a friendly place for the children to spend their day.
The Village Day Nursery and pre school is registered with Ofsted to accept children from 6 weeks to 8 years of age.

Out of School Club

We offer wrap around school care from 7.30am each day. We take the children to school with our nursery car. We also collect the children after school and provide their tea. We offer various sessions for children up to 8 years of age including mornings, afternoons, short days, full days as and when required.

Communication with Parents and record keeping

At The Village Day Nursery we use a software application “Baby’s Days” that enables us to complete the required statutory paperwork quickly and efficiently. It is an advanced EYFS childcare management software system that allows us to create a Child’s Day through to monitoring a Child’s progress.

We will create a diary for each child for the parents to view on line. Parents can add observations, next steps, upload photographs, give permissions, leave notes on the system and many more tasks.

The system is secure; parents can access information only relating to their child.

All nursery policies and procedures are uploaded on Baby’s Days and can be viewed and accessed at any time.

Additionally we have Parent’s evenings, which will allow further relaxed discussion with your child’s key person.
