  • Who we are

    Offering a safe place for your little one to learn, play and grow.

    We provide a nurturing and stimulating environment, the perfect start for your child’s learning journey.

    Our day nursery in Dartmouth is located nearby the vibrant and historic harbour, on the river Dart. The nursery has been beautifully redecorated, and offers hygge-inspired spaces for your child to rest, play, learn and develop.

    Our children’s nursery is perfect for military families, providing flexible hours and operating nearby the Britannia Royal Naval College.

    The Orchard Room, home to our youngest children, has a large space with plenty of windows, light, and fresh air. Our professional approach is based on the personal needs and interests of each child, with our teams enabling active learning based on play and exploration. As they become more independent, emphasis on child-centred practice and growth will give them the self-reliance and confidence to thrive.

    "I couldn't recommend it highly enough"

    "We've been delighted with hdc Dartmouth. Our daughter loves being there, and all the staff have been wonderful with her. They helped her settle really easily, and she's so excited to go in the morning, which is wonderful to see. I couldn't recommend it highly enough."

    "Excellent staff, great activities"

    "Excellent staff, great activities, very sympathetic, flexible and extremely understanding. My grandson loves his two days with you and he is learning new skills fast, loving every minute of his time."

    "Always feel welcomed by the staff"

    "It's a lovely nursery. Always feel welcomed by the staff when we come to pick our granddaughter up. She loves it up there with all the staff and children. She talks to us about staff and that she has been playing with the boys and girls."

    Helping pay for your childcare

But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.
