We operate an open-door policy and parents are positively encouraged to come in and talk to the staff or merely to see how the nursery staff operates and plays with their children. Parents are always welcome. Nursery staff will provide a daily report to parents regarding their childs nursery day. This may be verbal or written. This daily report will state the number and length of naps, the amount of food eaten, number and details of nappy changes, activities to do at home and other essential information.

Parents are invited and encouraged to speak with their child’s key person at any time and appointments can be made, at your request, for time with your child’s key person to discuss your child’s progress or any other issues.

Parental involvement in Children’s Growth

At Play Days Academy  we believe that parents are a child’s first educators. We will, therefore, consult and discuss with the parents regarding all aspects of their child’s development and general care and well-being.

We see our relationship with parents as a partnership and believe that we should work together to ensure your child receives the best possible start in life.

Lorna May smith

A lovely fresh and bright new nursery set on the edge of the Leicestershire countryside.The children are stimulated and educated through play and the outdoors whatever the weather. It has a lovely "home from home" feel, with friendly staff who treasure your little one as much as you do.

Sharon Mckinnon-Mitchell

I wasnt sure how my "clingy" 1 year old would adapt to nursery but now she waves us off and cant wait to go! Everyone is so understanding of all the children and have really bought my girl out of her shell. She loves mixing with other children now, Although she doesn't need to be in nursery i am so glad i decided to let her as she seems to be learning a lot more and becoming very talkative!
