Welcome to Douglas Valley Nursery School

We are a Nursery School offering a wide range of services for children and families. We offer early education sessions for two and three/four year olds, breakfast, lunch and after-school clubs during term-time and year round Holiday Club care for 3-11 year olds.

Ofsted Rating: ‘Outstanding’

We are proud that our reputation as an excellent provider of early years education was once again recognised in our 2018 inspection by Ofsted whom said :


“This school continues to be outstanding”


“The leadership team has maintained the outstanding quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have created a school where staff, all of whom are proud to be at the school, have an excellent understanding of what it means to make learning personal to each child in their care.  Your expertise is recognised beyond the school and beyond your own local authority in the work you do with other nursery settings in the maintained and private sectors.”
