Nursery Overview Writtle, Chelmsford
*Our Ofsted OUTSTANDING Kiddi Caru Day Nursery is located in the heart of Writtle Village, close to central Chelmsford with easy access from the A414 and A12. The nursery is set in an acre of land and has five large playrooms with direct access to a large open plan garden, providing ample opportunities for the children to play and learn, using a forest school approach to teaching with qualified forest school leaders. The large space the nursery has available, means that the children have the freedom to develop and explore using physical boundaries, to take risks and to discover the world around them using their senses. This can have a positive effect on their self-esteem and their confidence.
