About Our Nursery

ABC Day Nursery was opened in 1994, and is set within the ground floor of a large, airy converted house near the Exmouth coast. We have plenty of space for our little Adventurers (0 – 2 years) and Inventors (2 – 4 years), who we love helping grow into confident, inquisitive and kind young people.

The nursery is registered with Ofsted for children from 0 – 5 years. Our experienced and qualified staff aim to create an environment in which the children feel safe, happy and valued as individuals. Our most recent Ofsted inspection was in October 2018. The Nursery was judged as Good, with Ofsted complimenting our staff on their caring and friendly nature, and broad range of teaching methods. Our children were noted for their keenness to learn and their willingness to have a go. Staff were praised for having enhanced their partnerships with parents to promote children’s development at home and the nursery effectively.
