Our Background

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 Nursery is open for 51 weeks of the year. We open at 08:00 hrs and close at 18:00 hrs Mondays to Fridays , and offer both full days and half days.

At Bell Day Pre-School we strive to provide a safe and caring space for young children to build the strong foundations for learning, supporting both them and their families.

We are a nursery and pre-school community, where adults model respect for each other. We see ourselves as an integral part of our wider community as we explore our rural market town and beyond.

We understand that a child’s learning journey is driven by them and their interests, however, we endeavour to provide new learning opportunities to encourage enquiring minds and lead them on to their next steps.     

We are a reflective, inclusive pre-school, differentiating our curriculum to inspire and be accessible for all.   We encourage children to develop a sense of curiosity and give them the tools to build on a lifelong love of learning enabling them to reach their full potential.
