Welcome to Kevin Pearce Children’s Centre and Nursery
Kevin Pearce Children’s Centre is a 49 place day nursery that offers a range of sessions for children aged between 0 and 5 years of age. The nursery consists of the Mini Movers Unit (0-2 years) and the Early Years Unit (2 years +)
The staff team at Kevin Pearce, all of which are qualified to a minimum of Level 3 or equivalent and hold a paediatric first aid certificate, strive to ensure that each individual child’s needs are met, supporting and developing their full potential so they achieve the learning and development goals, set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
Kevin Pearce has the additional benefit of having extensive outdoor facilities. We have a large secure artificial grassed garden area, a Forest School with fully equipped POD and separate outdoor spaces for the Mini Movers.

You will have your own individual account which allows your personal feed to receive photographs, videos, messages and updates in real time. Parents can grant access to other family member like grandparents, to view their child’s learning journey on the app.
Each child will have an individual Learning Journey in here and it here we will share observations of your child’s learning and development and link it to the early years foundation stage. This will help you understand he progress your child is making.
