Welcome to Rothbury Kindergarten

At Rothbury Kindergarten we provide quality care and early education for children ages 0-5 years in Rothbury and the local area.

We aim to provide children with freedom, happiness, guidance, discipline and kindness in a consistent, secure environment. We recognise the emotional needs of children, which include attention, affection, safeguarding, as well as a sense of belonging and personal growth. They need encouragement to learn from experience, the opportunity to explore, investigate and experiment and be given appropriate activities that encourage children to reach their full potential.

Quality Childcare

All children learn through play – the principal means of learning in early childhood. Through play, children gradually develop concepts and ideas, learn to discriminate, make judgement and use their imagination.

We have over 17 years of experience in providing quality childcare, which we use to ensure all our nurseries provide the best environment for our children's learning and development. At Rothbury Kindergarten we draw upon the knowledge gained from our 4 sister nurseries in South Tyneside, all of which are Ofsted graded Good or Outstanding, in order to provide this. You can find out about our other settings on our sister nurseries page.

Local Links

Rothbury Kindergarten has close links with both Rothbury and Thropton First Schools and passes on any relevant information regarding your child’s learning and development, during their time with us and when they leave. We operate a drop off and collection service to Rothbury First School and a collection only service to Thropton First School. Both services are subject to numbers and availability.

Our Ofsted

In August 2016, Rothbury Kindergarten received its first Ofsted inspection and we are delighted to share with you that we have received a Good grading in all areas.

Everyone at the nursery is proud of the result but we are determined to not stop there. We are constantly aiming to improve upon what we offer to our children and to push towards the outstanding grade that we know we can achieve in our next inspection.

If you wish to read our latest report you can find out about it on our Ofsted page.

Food Hygiene

We are proud to be able to say that Rothbury Kindergarten has a grade 5 for food hygiene.

We serve healthy meals prepared in buidling

We're Healthy

All of our meals are free!

At our nursery we encourage children to develop a positive attitude to food and healthy lifestyles. We understand how important the health of your child is and this makes it important for us. We are committed to promoting a healthy lifestyle to help all of the children who attend our nursery on their way to a long healthy life.

All our meals are healthy and wholesome, cooked fresh that day in our on site kitchen. Our menu has been designed to provide our children with the balanced diet they need to grow up happy and healthy. We can adapt our menu to suit children's individual needs where necessary such as children with allergies or those who may require a vegetarian menu.
