Welcome to Whickham Cottage Nursery
Since 1987, Whickham Cottage Nursery has been providing a quality childcare service to children from across the local region. Based at a purpose-built site in Swalwell since 2001, our nursery serves Newcastle, Gateshead and the surrounding areas.
‘Learning through Play’ is the ethos which lies at the heart of everything that we do. We believe that if children are enjoying themselves, they will learn and achieve more. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which echoes this ethos of interactive and fun learning.
We take care of children from 6 weeks to 5 years old, and can accommodate up to 108 children. With six individual playrooms which are organised according to age and stage of development, we can keep a close eye on your child’s development and monitor their progression whilst they are with us. Each child is assigned a key worker who will encourage their learning on a one-to-one basis, helping to ensure that they reach their potential and progress successfully whilst in our care.
With direct access to our large garden from each of our six playrooms, your child will be able to play and learn outdoors as well as in. We have designed our outside space to offer new learning opportunities and physical challenges, making it the perfect place for children to gain new skills through outdoor play.
With a separate cot room for babies, and a dining room where children can interact and enjoy nutritious food, our nursery has all of the facilities you could ever want for your children.
