Kiddi Caru Day Nursery and Preschool Writtle, Chelmsford

Our Kiddi Caru Day Nursery and Preschool in Chelmsford is located in the heart of Writtle Village which is close to central Chelmsford, Essex. It benefits from easy access from the A414 and A12.

Set in an acre of land on the Writtle College site, our nursery offers a number of childcare options for families in the area. Half days, full days and we have just introduced a school day which is very popular with families that have an older sibling attending school.  When your little one is eligible for the free funded hours, we accept up to 22 hours a week all year round.


The nursery has classrooms indoors and outside, offering the freedom for children to develop, explore and learn no matter what age. Our outdoor facility includes a Forest School which is an outdoor woodland learning area.

Our highly qualified team of Early Years Practitioners are well established with some of them having been at the nursery for over 10 years. We are also lucky enough to have the 2016 NDNA Nursery Practitioner of the year working at the nursery meaning we can and do offer exceptional childcare in Chelmsford and surrounding villages. The team also includes a qualified teacher in our preschool room and we have qualified forest school leaders with all staff having paediatric first aid certificate and regularly attend training courses.

Our all-inclusive activities programme, such as Yoga, French, treasure basket play, music and movement are all free of charge and rolled out throughout the week. Cooking activities are also available using a children’s oven, so they can see the whole process from beginning to end. We are Sing & Sign affiliated; a communication programme in particular for babies to encourage simple keyword signing alongside normal speech. The team use this throughout the day to help children’s communication.

We recommend all families looking for childcare in the Chelmsford area come and book a personal visit where you can see our Outstanding nursery and discuss the childcare options we currently have available, costings, childcare savings schemes on offer and to spend time with our dedicated and knowledgeable staff.
