Playdays Daycare Nursery is a privately owned nursery situated in Blackrod, Lancashire. The nursery is owned by husband and wife Ruth and Carl West who undertake the roles of Director / Cook and Secretary respectively.

 We opened the nursery in September 2004, following an extremely intensive 6 month programme of refurbishment, and over a period of 6 years, we have invested every available hour in sensitively transforming the dilapidated building, and its grounds, into an exceptional nursery setting.
Throughout the design stages, we have tried to retain much of the old building’s charm and character, whilst creating a learning environment that is inclusive and fun, and accurately reflects the requirements of parents and children.
·          Safety  
Our carefully designed nursery ensures that all our children have the best possible environment to receive a high standard care and education. Every precaution has been taken to keep our children safe; from simple things like finger guards and plug covers to biometric access systems and security cameras. Outside, our nursery grounds are fully fenced and secure.
·          Quality & Inclusion
The setting has been designed to accommodate children with differing physical and educational needs. The redesign and creation of the new Pre-school with access to the grounds facilitates access to all areas on one level. All room s have designated areas to allow children to simply relax, watch other children play and enjoy sensory experiences.
·          Child led activities & Freedom of choice
A key objective for us was to create an environment where the children can take a lead in what activities they wish to partake in. This has been achieved through an open plan design where each area of learning flows seamlessly into another.
·          Making learning fun through exciting and stimulating indoor & outdoor learning environments
We recognise that one of the most important considerations at design stage is to visualise the completed building through the eyes of our children. What would encourage and stimulate them? What would excite them and challenge them? How can we create a warm, safe and homely place to learn and grow?
·          Green Energy & Energy efficiency
The design of the new nursery incorporates a solar panel and an air source heat pump that provide all the green energy required to provide hot water and heat the building. These elements, together with secondary insulation and double glazing have reduced our carbon emissions by over 30%.
