Welcome to Kevin Pearce Children’s Centre and Nursery
Kevin Pearce Children’s Centre is a 40 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 hold a variety of qualifications from degree level to Level 3 qualified and all staff hold a paediatric first aid, food hygiene, food allergen and safeguarding certificate as standard.
We strive to ensure that each individual child’s needs are met; supporting and developing their individual potential so they achieve the learning and development goals set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. We currently plan and monitor children’s development using the Birth to Five Matters document.
Kevin Pearce has the additional benefit of having extensive outdoor facilities. We have a large secure artificial grassed garden area, a Forest School with a fully equipped POD, a growing area with a green house and a separate outdoor space for the Mini Movers.

What is the Famly App?
Our children’s centre nursery uses an app called Famly which can be easily accessed online. We use this to stay in touch and to keep you updated on your child’s development whist at our settings.
You will have your own individual account, which allows you to receive photographs, videos, messages and updates in real time. Parents can grant access to additional family members like grandparents, to view their child’s learning journey on the app.
Each child will have an individual Learning Journey on the app and it will share observations of your child’s learning and development and link it to the relevant areas of learning in Early Years Foundation Stage. This will support you to understand the progress your child is making.
The app is a fully encrypted GDPR – compliant and digital platform therefore all data stored on the app is protected and secure.
We are open Monday to Friday from 7.45am to 5.45pm. We close for Bank Holidays, Christmas/New Year and two staff training days a year.
