Blandford Children's Centre Nursery

We are a 40 place nursery open every day from 8am until 6pm. We take children from 0 to 5 years. All staff are qualified with a minimum NVQ level II qualification. We are a friendly and welcoming Nursery offering a range of activities catering for very young babies through to School age. We strongly support children to learn through play experiences in stimulating, fun and interesting environments ensuring they are given the opportunity to build upon these foundations.
