We are delighted to offer FREE PLACES for some 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds accessing the 15 hours of Free and Flexible Extended Entitlement (FFEE) within our Nursery and Pre-School.



Keep Guard Day Nursery practice is underpinned by policies and procedures which meet the safeguarding and welfare requirements and are available in a policy document in the main reception area. Ofsted said ‘Children's welfare is well promoted because safeguarding arrangements are thorough’.  


We are registered by Ofsted under The Children Act 1989 and are inspected regularly. At our last inspection Ofsted said Children are offered appropriate support because practitioners have good procedures to gather information from parents and, therefore, know the children well. This means that children are secure and enthusiastic, and are developing positive attitudes to learning. Teaching techniques are strong because practitioners have a confident understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage. They encourage children to develop their own play, offering support whenever needed’. To view our most recent Ofsted Inspection please use the link below or visit
