The Secret Garden Day Nursery - Darlington

Welcome to The Secret Garden Day Nursery  

Having children is a wonderful and exciting experience but, finding the right childcare can be stressful.  At The Secret Garden Day Nursery we know the emotions that both parents and children can go through and therefore try to make the experience as easy as possible for everyone.

Our nursery is set in a Grade II listed period cottage on Haughton Green and has a rear extension, which was added to the property in May 2003.  Nursery benefits from CCTV in each nursery room and has two cameras covering the large safe, enclosed garden of both patio area and grass, in excess of 40m/120ft by 20m/60ft. 

The main aim at The Secret Garden Day Nursery is to provide the high quality care and education that we are so passionate about.

With the nursery’s homely atmosphere, large outdoor area and it’s excellent facilities, we can offer the very best in care and education for pre-school children and ensure that their pre-school days are happy days.

Don't just take our word for it....

At our unannounced Environmental Health visit in June 2012 we were once again awarded with a score of 5 for excellent standards of hygiene. 

Our last Ofsted visit was in June 2010 and we were once again graded 'good' for every aspect.  An excellent grade especially as Ofsted have 'raised the bar'. We are continuing to work towards the 'outstanding' grade  and are continually evaluating our practice to ensure it is up to date and of the highest quality possible.  If you would like to view our ofsted report please use the following link - www.ofsted.gov.uk and then view reports.
