Our Ethos

Our ethos at Blackberries is “To Provide Inspiring Childcare Education Nurturing each Child’s Qualities and Potential”


Our Environments

At Blackberry House Day Nursery, we create a warm, nurturing, caring and educational environment that stimulates your child and we believe that every child has the right to a healthy and happy childhood. We ensure that your child feels individually valued and supported to achieve their fullest potential.



Our Baby Room is a calm, warm, and stimulating environment for our babies, where they feel loved and cared for, as they begin their ‘Blackberries Journey’.

Exploration and learning at this age is all about using the senses, so our activities are very hands on so our youngest children and can feel, hear, touch, smell and taste to support their learning.



With our bright, open spaces, our Toddlers discover the world around them, within our indoor and outdoor environments, as well as making new friends.

Toddlers they learn best through experience and play, sitting still is not an option, practitioners take a hands-on approach to supporting our toddlers to learn, by using the real-life environment to engage their interest and make the learning valuable.




Helping our Children prepare for school is an important part of what happens in Pre-school.

School readiness is a big part of the pre-school everyday routine, exploring maths and literacy throughout activities to recognise numbers and letters, but also life, independence skills, putting their own coats and shoes on, and social communication skills also.


Forest Schools

Our aim here at Blackberries is to develop and enrich children’s learning outside the classroom. Blackberries are committed to the importance of enabling children to experience the world beyond the classroom as an integral and essential part of their Early Years Development.

At Blackberry House Day Nursery we are proud of our onsite woodland areas, enabling us to intertwine our unique Forest School Learning into Children’s Play, Learning and Development.

Forest School learning is well embedded at Blackberries with children of all ages exploring our Forest School sessions.
