Our Background

20201028_141126.jpg

Our children thrive in a safe and supportive environment, according to the principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage, where we work in partnership with the parents.

We offer children a homely family atmosphere, and to ensure that this is maintained we keep staffing levels high, and ratios as generous as we can, ensuring quality throughout.

We are a Community Interest Company, and as such it is very important that we serve the local community in offering high quality childcare and employing local staff and trades people where possible.

We are set in an attractive residential area of Saffron Walden, serving the locality & within commuting distance of London & Cambridge.

The Nursery was established in the late 1980’s by parents of the Bell Language School, later to be taken over by senior members of staff, one of whom is still one of our managers to this day.

Over the past few years the Nursery has grown and in April 2011 we moved into our newly refurbished college building, adjacent to the original setting.

In 2018, we extended across two settings and developed the Bell Day Pre-school site at the leisure centre.

Bell Day Pre-school is open for 51 weeks of the year. We open at 07:45 hrs and close at 18:00 hrs Mondays to Fridays , and offer both full days and half days.
