Hello and welcome to Nelly’s Nursery at Lancaster Avenue.
My name is Ali Kelly and I’m the Nursery Manager here.
I have Level 2 and 3 qualifications in Childcare and Education, Level 2 and 3 qualifications in Playwork, and a Level 3 and 5 qualification in Management. I have worked in nursery settings and childcare provisions both in the UK and abroad since 1997.
Our nursery offers a warm, friendly and individualized childcare approach, delivered by a dedicated staff team here at Lancaster Avenue. As a nursery, we pride ourselves on our fantastic team who offer a wealth of experience, care and passion for quality childcare provision. By following each of our children's routines from home, we are able to support and encourage each child's stage of development (along with their parents) so they are able to flourish within the nursery setting and beyond.
Hopefully when viewing the nursery you will be able get a real sense of the nursery, our dedicated staff team, and the very confident and happy children who continue make Nelly's what it is today.
Lancaster Avenue Nursery
What makes us special as a nursery is our outdoor play space. We are fortunate to have such a large garden complete with a huge sandpit, vegetable patch, mud kitchen, lawn and decking area - all the while keeping a natural feel with lots of plants and trees. The children have constant access to our outdoor area, able to choose at all times whether they’d like to be indoors or outdoors, which contributes positively to children's behaviour, development and wellbeing.
Our nursery is a large detached Victorian property, which has been carefully refurbished and equipped to a high standard, with generously proportioned rooms for babies and toddlers aged 3 months to approximately 24 months; and our older children - aged 2, 3 and 4 years old.
