Footprints Day Nursery Wallsend is a 104 place nursery which opened in 2018. We are a private day nursery providing care and education for babies and children from 6 weeks to 5 years. We offer a fun and inviting, home from home, learn through play environment to allow your little one to thrive in.
We are committed to providing a happy and safe environment for all children who attend our Nursery. Our aim is simply to be the best in the local North Tyneside area and to provide the highest standards of care and education for every child, whether they attend each day or for just one session per week. We endeavour to offer the highest quality setting and standard of care; we welcome the regular Ofsted inspection.
Children are encouraged to confidently explore their age appropriate play room as well as accessing one of our many outdoor areas. Children can enhance their learning and development through new, exciting and stimulating activities whilst having access to the enclosed, secure outdoor play areas.
The main, open plan garden has paved and grassed areas, which allow all babies and children to explore with confidence. We have created an allotment area for children to grow their own fruit and vegetables, which they can enjoy planting, taking care of and then enjoy during meal and snack times. Our Hedgehogs (babies) have their own separated covered garden area; our Badgers (preschool) have their own fully accessible garden; we also have a stunning, relaxing ‘Water garden’ to the rear of our centre for all to explore and thrive in.
Through observing children’s individual interests and needs, staff can successfully plan experiences and activities using the 7 areas of learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Out of school club – We run an out of school club, providing care to children attending local schools which includes breakfast and after school club. We offer a drop off and collection service to local schools and to fully support working parents, this is available for children aged 4-11 years.
