Kiddi Caru Day Nursery and PreschoolTorquay

Kiddi Caru Day Nursery and Preschool is located up the road from the Nicholson Road Retail Park near to Sainsbury’s supermarket and is a five minute drive directly off the A380. Our nursery offers families in the Torquay and Devon area, flexible childcare to fit in with your individual family needs.

We offer free childcare for all three and four year olds as we accept up to 22 hours a week of funded hours all year round. Ask our nursery management team about Childcare Choices and we can see what childcare saving schemes you may be entitled to. Half days, full days are available all year round and we have just introduced a school day which is very popular with families that have an older sibling attending school.

Fresh air and exercise is a daily part of the children’s routine. Outside we have a garden that allows the childcare to explore with vegetable growing and animals to look after. Whatever the weather, there is plenty for the little ones to do. At the bottom of the garden you will find our yurt which is an amazing space for specific learning opportunities such as sensory and heuristic activities. It is an environment which allows children to switch off from their surroundings and fully engage.

So much to see; our sensory room which is a calm, stimulating environment to our well resourced playrooms which are packed with age appropriate resources encouraging the children to learn through play, all of which are carefully planned and carried out by our dedicated and highly qualified Early Years Practitioners.

We provide wholesome food each day which is prepared by our onsite nursery chef. A wide range of menus are on offer which are checked by a qualified nutritionist catering for all stages of weaning and to develop independence with older children, we encourage them to help themselves to the food on offer.

We also offer an all-inclusive activity programme which is delivered by our very own staff and includes Sing & Sign, Boogie Mites; the children love these fun activities which have lots of educational benefits and are totally free of charge and part of our childcare package.

Want to see it for yourself? Book now to arrange a visit! Our helpful Torquay team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
