Who we are

Welcome to Sankofa Day Nursery.

Sankofa Nursery is located on a quiet street off Ilderton Road. The building is purpose built with a large outdoor play area. The rooms are light and airy with large windows giving lots of natural sunlight. The building is fully central heated.

 

We cater for 20 children between the ages of 2-5 years from

8am - 6pm Monday to Friday, for 50 weeks of the year (excluding Bank Holidays and a two week closure period over Christmas).

Health & Safety

Whilst we believe in encouraging children to be independent and explore their environment, our first thought is always for their safety.

  • COVID-19 Measures - To take a look at some of the changes we have implemented as a result of COVID-19, please look at our safety notice.

  • First Aid - We understand that occasional falls can happen but are always fully prepared to deal with any accidents that may occur whilst your child is with us. Our nursery team always includes staff with a full paediatric first aid certificate and we go on regular first aid courses to ensure staff are kept up to date.

  • Secure entry to the  Premises -The outside door is locked and only authorised people will be allowed to collect children from the premises.

  • Staff - All our staff are CBS checked regularly.
