About Us Childrens Day Nursery in Northampton

Normanhurst Day Nursery has been providing quality childcare and early years provision since 1962.

 We are located close to the centre of Northampton, overlooking The Racecourse on St George's Avenue and within walking distance of the University of Northampton's “Avenue Campus”. Our nursery is situated within a light and spacious converted Victorian property, which has recently been refurbished and modernised, and subject to a regular renewal project which ensures that the environment is constantly changed and refreshed to provide a dynamic and varied learning environment for our children.

This nursery has provided children with wonderful memories for over 55 years and has been integral to our wonderful reputation. We are registered to provide childcare for up to 45 children from the ages of 3 months to 8 years, whilst employing up to 13 nursery nurses. Our setting is divided into developmental age groups, however we also allow our children to interact with other age groups if we feel that this will benefit their social development and learning.

All of our staff members are fully DBS checked and highly experienced in providing childcare. Our longest-standing staff members have worked with us for over 40 years, developing fantastic relationships with parents, children and the local community. 

 At Normanhurst Day Nursery, it is important to us that your child feels relaxed and safe whilst they are in our care, in order to aid their social and educational development and allow them to feel confident in interacting with others, engaging in a broad spectrum of activities and exploring their surroundings. With this in mind, all of our staff aim to create a friendly, homely atmosphere through free-flow play and a variety of activities that are tailored to your child's interests.
