about us

The Red House Day Nursery opened in the vibrant Cambridgeshire village of Burwell in January 1997. It occupies a central location in a converted Victorian house, overlooking the village green. We cater for up to 58 children a day between the ages of 3 months to 5 years in 3 separate age related rooms and provide a warm home from home atmosphere for our children to play, learn and thrive.

Not only do we aim to provide the best quality care for each child who attends our nursery we also hope to make the decision of choosing a nursery easier for parents by providing enough information for them to make an informed choice. We believe that every parent needs to be able to leave their child in the knowledge that they are going to be well cared for in their absence. That their child is going to have fun, be stimulated, be given cuddles, supported when needed and can have the opportunity and guidance to master new challenges.

 

our ethos We believe that children’s experiences in their earliest years are critical to their development and well-being. We have strived over the years to earn and maintain our excellent reputation of teaching the children in our care to be polite, well-mannered, self-confident and well equipped to face the challenges of school. It is our intention to provide love, affection and intellectual stimulation at all times, to help build their self-esteem and instil a lifelong love of learning in each child, equipping them with the social skills needed for life.
Activities We are a child led nursery and we strongly believe that children learn best through play. A well thought out environment with the ability to access a range of different toys and supplies, coupled with experienced staff and the imagination of children will always lead to something wonderful. The children are encouraged to have their own ideas and thought processes and the staff develop activities based on the children’s interests and current engagements. We work closely with our parents, encouraging them to share information about interests or events that their child has experienced at home. We then use this information to further the child’s interest at nursery. Staff carefully and creatively extend the children’s thoughts and ideas, promoting a high level of engagement from all.
OUR rooms
outside play

Children of all ages love to be outside, regardless of the weather or the time of day! They love the freedom to explore and challenge themselves. In our play area, we have a range of toys that will encourage the children’s physical development. Climbing frames, a play house, bikes, scooters, balls, push along toys and balancing resources, all promote their emerging skills and help to make the most out of the children’s play time.

The play area has a large section of soft surface, which is covered, to allow for outdoor play in wet weather. Our Mud Kitchen provides the opportunity for children to be creative and has the resources to inspire curiosity and investigation. They wear all in one clothes and wellies and can then get as messy as they like, making mud pies and anything else that takes their fancy. The children enjoy planting and growing flowers and vegetables in the garden. Our produce is proudly taken to the kitchen for preparation and sharing.

Our local community has much to offer and the children thoroughly enjoy going for walks around the village. We aim to emulate the kind of things parents would normally do with their children day to day, for example, going to the shops, feeding the ducks, going to the woods and of course, outings to the park. Our recent introduction of Forest School practice allows us to take small groups of children to our local wood and experience activities using whatever the environment has to offer.

 

Community We believe it is important for the children to feel part of the local community and to this end we make regular visits to the local day centre for the elderly. Here we sing and spend time interacting with the older members of our community. We visit the local school, Burwell Village College and take part in various activities throughout the year Our local Police Officer and personnel from the Fire Service, regularly visit to teach us the importance of staying safe.
