About Us


Silkwood Private Day Nursery & Creche is a privately owned facility situated within the Total Fitness Centre just off the roundabout junction 40 of the M1. We offer full day or sessional care for children age 0-5 years in the Day Nursery to both members and non-members of the gym.

Our aim at Silkwood is to provide quality affordable childcare. The setting is on one level, open plan and air-conditioned which is both secure and safe.

Our objective is not only to provide a stimulating, caring environment but to also offer a wide range of educational activities to prepare our children for the national curriculum and to set them on the road to being happy, enthusiastic, inquisitive individuals.

Our Staff

The children are cared for by Criminal Record Bureau checked; trained, experienced, caring staff who work as a team to ensure the children receive the benefit of this expertise. The manager and individual staff member responsible for each room are qualified to as a minimum NVQ level 3 or recognized equivalent. The ratio of staff to children as identified by OFSTED’s care standards is regarded as the minimum and will always be exceeded. Children are encouraged to develop responsibility for themselves and their actions whilst also learning to work and play with others.

The nursery operates a key worker system, where each child is allotted a key worker to whom he or she together with its parents can relate.
