Dickory Docks Educational Day Nursery was established around 19 years ago to meet the need for quality childcare. The present owners took the nursery over in March 2014, and wished to continue the tradition. Our mission statement is to provide the best quality childcare at affordable prices. The original nursery started in Prospect School D- Block. As the nursery was expanding rapidly, the Log cabin was added to the nursery to house the preschool. The nursery was rated 'Outstanding' in all areas by OFSTED in 2015, and is currently rated GOOD. Please refer to the link for the latest  OFSTED report.
