What Ofsted said about playbox …
What Ofsted said About Us …
“Children have an excellent time at the setting. There are many rich, varied and imaginative experiences for children to explore. Staff demonstrate that they have an excellent understanding of how young children learn and develop. They have high expectations of all children based on sharp, focused assessments of children’s capabilities. As a result they provide a highly stimulating educational programme based on children’s interests.”

“Parents report that their children are always eager to attend the setting. Children talk about the staff when at home and comment on things they have done whilst at the setting. This demonstrates that children feel safe and emotionally secure at the setting.”


“The provider manages the setting exceptionally well. The provider’s pursuit of excellence in all aspects of the setting’s organisation is documented well in her improvement plans and regulatory paperwork.”


 “The provider and her manager are extremely rigorous in monitoring children’s development and progress.”

Award Winning

Playbox Day Nursery WON THE NATIONAL DAY NURSERIES ASSOCIATION TECHNOLOGY AWARD and were awarded ‘highly commended’ in the nursery of the year -south category IN JUNE 2018.

The award recognises our excellence in teaching children how to use technology safely and appropriately as well as how it is used within the nursery to enhance the children’s learning and development.  It also encompasses how we use technology, namely the BabysDays software and social media, to communicate with parents and keep them updated with what their child is doing whilst at nursery.
