Our Nursery caters for a maximum of 82 children at any one time, with no more than 18 children being under the age of 2 years. We provide an advanced learning and play environment, conforming to the highest standards.
At Riverside, babies and children are cared for from the age of 3 months, right up to school age. All of our staff hold relevant childcare qualifications, training and experience. We are OFSTED Registered and operate within their strict guidelines.
We understand that the early years of a child’s life are incredibly important and will therefore provide many opportunities for each individual child to grow and fulfil their own potential. In order to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially, all children require a safe and secure environment and strong relationships with others. We are committed to good practice and are continually striving to provide a service of the highest quality. At Riverside, each child’s welfare and development are paramount.
The Nursery is located in Lower Darwen within easy access of the M65 and all major routes to Blackburn & Darwen. The setting is a private and secure area with ample parking. Within the site, we also have an on-site purpose-built Swimming Academy, built in a separate building for use by Nursery children, when required.
Our opening hours are from 7:30am-5:45pm, with Part & Full-Time sessions available.
