Early Years Nursery first opened in 2002 and has two nurseries, one located on Norman Way and the other in the grounds of Swallowdale Primary School. We are validated by Leicestershire County Council (LCC) and are Ofsted registered.

At Early Years Nursery we understand the importance of providing children with positive learning experiences. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and actively encourage children to explore our rich learning environments, both in and outdoors. We have high expectations of the children and our ethos is to create thriving, happy, confident and independent learners.
