About Us


The Patch Day Nursery is an Ofsted registered day nursery provision attached and led by the governors of Old Park primary School.


Our ethos here at the Patch is completely based around the child being the centre of everything we do.

We firmly believe that the first five years of a child’s life influences their life chances, health and wellbeing.


Built around the Child

We began operating in June 2008 as a 2-5 provision but in 2015 we extended our physical space to allow us to have a separate Baby Unit.


Over the years we have adapted our environment to meet the requirements and needs of our children and families. We are currently working with 2 separate areas within our 2-4 unit - Badgers and hedgehogs.

This has supported our current children has children are grouped based on their development.

Our Baby room as the capacity for 9 babies from 6 months to 2 years, although sometimes some of babies move into our badger area slightly earlier if in their best interests.



Our opening times are from 7:45 until 5:30pm during term time, this may become shorter during the school holidays, but this is determined by termly questionnaires completed by our families.
