At Jurassic Childcare Sidmouth we provide a mixed-age childcare service term time. The nursery operates on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday  8 am to 5 pm.  Registrations are open to children from birth to 5 years.

Here, we follow a Montessori inspired educational approach, which promotes hands-on learning and self-directed activities for children in the classrooms.  This is well balanced by fully qualified, DBS checked Early Years Practitioners who plan various activities carefully, considering the children and their interests.  

The environment here at Jurassic Childcare is purposefully planned according to age appropriateness to give our children the freedom to, independently, choose activities they wish to explore.
