Our Provision

Rydal has been a well established and respected day nursery since 1996. We provide child care for children on two floors aged between two years and four years.

We adhere to government ratio’s in caring for and supporting our children. We operate with a minimum ratio of one staff to four children on our ground floor with our 2-3 year old’s and upstairs one staff to eight children with our 3-4 year old’s. We always have an additional member of staff who provides additional support to both children and staff throughout the day.

Jolly tots are children aged 2 – 3 years. They play and learn on our ground floor in our two spacious rooms.

Pre school are children aged 3 – 4 years. They play and learn on our first floor in our two spacious rooms, and an additional smaller room for small group activities.

We have a wide variety of toys and objects to investigate, explore and play with, which we regularly rotate in accordance to the children’s interests and stage of development.

We aim to provide a variety of opportunities to enable all children regardless of race, culture, religion, gender, physical emotional or social disabilities or means, to develop to their full potential, learning to co-operate with others, enjoy new challenges and grow in confidence within a happy, secure and stimulating environment.
