Welcome to our nursery...

The Leicester Oadby opened in 2000 and is a purpose built nursery, all on one level. It is welcoming, friendly, happy and has three spacious rooms.
There are lots of opportunities for the babies and children to explore, create and enjoy.  Each room allows children to be busy throughout their day, learning new skills while they play in the well equipped areas. The atmosphere is relaxed and happy, enabling the children to learn in the free flow environment by following their interests and letting their confidence grow.

"Close bonds have formed between key persons, children and their families, which helps children feel a good sense of security and confidence when in the setting.” Ofsted 2014.

We pride ourselves on building excellent relationships between staff, children and parents to ensure that your child's needs are fully met. Our qualified and experienced staff team will ensure that your child's time with the Blueberry Bush is happy and fun and their likes and interests are respected.

Our free flow access to the outdoor offers a variety of activities where children can make choices, as well as taking risks.  There are ample opportunities for children to play and investigate. There is a pirate ship to discover, opportunities for music making as well as an area for planting.

The babies have their own covered play area too.  Here they have space to crawl and toddle in a safe environment discovering the world around them using all their senses.

"Staff value the strong partnerships with parents and carers. Daily discussions and a range of ways to share information are used effectively to ensure there is a co-ordinated approach to supporting children". Ofsted 2014

“Learning is effectively supported through the sensitive and consistent approach of the practitioners, who use praise and encouragement to ensure that children's needs are met and appropriately challenged” Leicestershire County Council Quality Review 2011.

If you would like more information or would like to have a look around, please call in - we are situated behind Swatlands Indian Restaurant on the old London Road in Oadby town centre.
