Welcome to Portobello Day Care Nursery
Portobello Day Care Nursery is a small nursery that cares for ten children aged 2 – 5 years at one time. Our ethos is based on our belief that all children deserve the best start in life. Our aim is to provide a safe, caring, stimulating environment that embraces the child’s individual needs.
We celebrate diversity and welcome cultures from around the world. We offer a learning environment that will equip your child with the skills needed to continue through the education system. We are registered and inspected by Ofsted (Office for Standards in Education). We work to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and use play based activities that encourage each child to reach their full potential at a pace that reflects their learning style.
Currently, all parents of three- and four-year-old children are entitled to a universal offer of 15 hours’ funded childcare per week, an offer also extended to the most disadvantaged two-year-olds. From September 2017, the government introduced a new scheme, known as 30 Hours Childcare, which provides an additional 15 funded hours to working parents of three- and four-year-olds. Some parents could therefore be eligible for up to 30 hours of funded childcare per week.
