Circus Day Nursery & Pre School

about us

Circus Day Nursery and Pre School recommended for quality assured day care for children aged three months to school age.

Circus Day Nursery and Pre School, located in a beautiful tree-lined road on the prestigious Pittville area of Cheltenham, offers a high standard of quality assured childcare to parents of children aged three months to school age.

Established in 1997, Circus Day Nursery has over the years achieved numerous awards, which recognise its hard work and efforts in making a positive difference to the lives of young children. We are proud of the longevity in staff service at the setting, showing dedication and commitment to their role as educators.  Children are cared for in an elegant regency listed building which dates back to the late 1800s.  With large, colourful rooms and a well-equipped garden with an all-weather surface, outdoor sunroom and protected canopy, children have the opportunity to learn, create and explore in safe, secure and stimulating surroundings and can free-flow in and out of the sunroom at their desire.  This area has a viewing window so children can sit and observe the wildlife or simply relax and read a book. 

Another amazing area the children love is the “SecretGarden”, an open wilderness space for children to develop their imagination. This is very much a child-led intiative.  There is even a “secret key” which the children use to gain access.  Every day is different in the secret garden, giving a wonderful opportunity to create a sense of awareness for the outdoor surroundings, and the evident stimulation has been outstanding.

Circus offers a programme of healthy eating which accommodates all allergies whilst educating children in developing good hygiene and table manners. Children are offered their 5 portions of fruit and vegetables daily.  The catering team pride themselves on the five star food hygiene award, which has consistently been awarded for the past four years.  The chef is keen to share the recipes with parents, as many parents often comment how much better the children eat at nursery.

With a focus on building children’s self-esteem and confidence, the nursery provides a balanced variety of age- appropriate activities and experiences so that children can develop and learn based on their individual needs.   With a key person in place, staff really get to understand the fundamental need to gain the trust and confidence of children in their care, and therefore listen and actively involve them in as many activities and decision-making processes as possible, from young babies to pre-school children.  The children’s key person, develops a very close working relationship with the child’s parents to develop a sound partnership in the best interests of the child and to create a solid attachment bond.

The highly motivated team at Circus Day Nursery are dedicated to developing and expanding their knowledge and this is evident from the ongoing training.  For added peace of mind, staff attend first aid training and child protection training amongst many other specific trainings relative to child development and ongoing research.

 

As children move through the nursery on a journey of experience and learning, they take their learning journeys to add all the milestones that take place in the child’s life at the setting. This objective and constructive feedback about children shares home/nursery life and staff are able to work with families and offer support whenever necessary.

'We were recently guests at a wedding, in Cheltenham, where we were lucky enough to be able to make use of child-care provided by Circus Day Nursery staff. The two nursery carers had filled a room with toys carefully selected based on the children's ages and the gender ratio. It was the first wedding that we had taken our boys, Oscar aged five and Felix who is three, and were slightly apprehensive, but we needn’t have worried. They loved playing with the train set and cranes whilst we were enjoying the speeches. Everyone was happy! They stayed up later than usual but as the tiredness kicked in they were able to watch the Lego Movie on the iPad. Oscar made some new friends too! Thank you for helping to make them feel at ease and looking after them so well.’

Staff from the Circus Day Nursery did a great job looking after children during our daughter's wedding reception. The children were completely absorbed in their activities, and so their parents could relax and enjoy the speeches and cabaret. Thank you!

My little girl attended Circus for nearly four years. Not only was Circus an amazing support to me but they also offered my daughter a secure environment where she could grow, have fun and learn. She was always surrounded by positive people and happy children which has made her sociable and confident. What a great start!

I'm so happy that I chose Circus Day Nursery for my son. He started at 3 months old and the staff have been fantastic with him. They provide lots of exciting activities and events for the children to enjoy. They have a lovely garden giving the children different areas to explore. My son enjoys his home cooked lunch and they are really good at catering for his allergy. The staff are fantastic and friendly. They make the children so welcome and feel settled that they are excited to go in the morning. I can't thank them enough for all they do.

My son loves his one day a week at nursery, I notice a huge difference in him when he's been. The staff are amazing and I know they genuinely care about each child meaning I'm never apprehensive about leaving him there. Circus is a fantastic nursery and I couldn't recommend it highly enough for anyone looking for a safe, stimulating and wonderful nursery to send their child.

Both my children have been to Circus since they were 9 months old. I couldn't have felt better about leaving them in such wonderful care. My eldest has since gone on to school and was well prepared. A truly caring, fun environment with fantastic staff.l

There is nowhere else I would want to leave my son. He has been going since he was 13 months and all the staff have been wonderful. He is now 21 months and lately he just wants to carry on playing when I go to collect him. I love all the different rooms available throughout the nursery, especially the wonderful sensory room and the garden room and the winding corridors with the sense of feeling a little lost means I imagine the children feel like they're on an adventure as they visit the different areas.

Sending your child to nursery is a really scary prospect for parent but from my first visit to Circus, I realised that I had nothing to worry about. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and my son absolutely loves coming there each week. He has come on so much since starting at the nursery. They do such a variety of activities, he comes home exhausted having played well, eaten well and usually having had a sleep too!

It's a difficult and challenging time when as a Mummy you return to work and need to leave your little one at nursery. From the first day we dropped off our daughter at Circus we knew we had made a great choice as our child care provider. The ladies in the baby suites are calm, endlessly patient and always ready to give lots of encouragement and cuddles. Nothing is ever too much hassle and their experience and guidance has been a great resource for us as first time parents - unfortunately babies don't come with a manual! I can go to work knowing that my daughter is happy and excited to be at Circus - I'm constantly surprised by what they do to entertain the little ones during the day encouraging their development and building social skills and we love getting various artistic creations sent home! Not only are the baby suite ladies amazing but every other staff member from the other age groups knows my child's name. You get a real sense of a very special team of people who are all genuinely invested in the care of you child and I cannot think of a more deserving business to be recognised for this award - we love them!

We have had 2 children go through Circus and can not sing their praises highly enough. The team of carers are fantastic, always friendly and happy to go the extra mile. The facilities are top notch and the development both of our children have benefitted from has helped them grow into the girls they are today. That said, it is all still about the staff and they are the best we have seen!! Well done Circus!
