Our Cromford Road nursery was the first in the Clowns family to open over 30 years ago.

We are currently undergoing extensive building works to renovate and modernise the building.

We are looking at making this nursery as efficient and sustainable as possible.

The Plans

Our plans have been carefully thought out with the children and getting the best from their environment in mind.

We are wanting to create a large open plan space on our lower ground floor with areas provided for each stage of development.

There will be a large outdoor terrace for the under 2s to have their own safe and secure outdoor area, and we are designing the garden and outdoor space to have all your children's development needs in mind as well as creating environmentally and a sustainable garden in which the children can learn and grow.

We have also included specific rooms in the main build to help with development such as;

A Sensory Room

A Project Room 

A Garden Room

A Sleep Room

More details and inspiration listed below.

Baby Room - Under 2s
 

Throughout the nursery we are waning to create a sense of home meets nature. 

 

The baby room will have a soft natural look with accents of pastel colours throughout the designs, decorations and equipment. 

 

We are wanting to create areas for the babies to enjoy playtime as well as cosy corners and creative areas to give the babies the best start in their development.

The baby room will also have it's own outdoor roof terrace for the babies to enjoy outdoor play and learning throughout the day, in their own secure area.

Toddler Room - (2 - 3 years olds)

Our 2-3 years olds room will again be a neutral colour pallet picked up with primary colours this time.

 

Having fun with resources to make the room feel light, bright and exciting for the children to explore, learn and enjoy.

This room will have it's own sliding doors that lead onto our soft play and garden area for the children to access throughout the day.

Our Pre-school Room - (over 3years)

Our Pre-school room will be a large open plan space with areas for all stages of development for the children to enjoy, create, learn new skills and reach their full potential.

 

We will be creating a natural environment with a relaxing and intriguing atmosphere to give the children the tools and experiences they require to absorb and thrive before starting their school journey.

Our Garden Room

 

We have had a new garden room built on the top level of the garden to become a room that is part of nature and enrols the children to investigate the world around them.
