When we opened in January 1995 we set out to create an environment in which children will be safe, stimulated, and challenged. A place where fun and enjoyment go hand in hand with learning and discovery. Achieving these aims and maintaining high standards does not happen by accident. It is the result of a carefully thought out approach, clearly defined objectives and rigorous standards.

 

We are located close to the Gresford Roundabout, about a quarter of a mile from the main Wrexham bypass (A483) and are ideal for those living and working in Wrexham, the local Industrial Estates and Chester.

 

The Day Nursery is a purpose built building set in a delightful rural setting. The exterior is very spacious having a large client car park, a fenced soft surface play section leading onto a large fenced grassed area. Internally, the Day Nursery has been designed and equipped so as to ensure the utmost in all aspects of safety.

 

The Homesteads Day Nursery is registered with The Care Standards Inspectorate for Wales and is under the supervision of Mrs Carol Edwards who is also the owner.

 

The Day Nursery accommodates three units: - Pre-School, Toddlers and Babies.

 

Pre-School - Five members of staff run the pre school unit and there is provision for physical play, resting periods, eating, science, craft, literacy and mathematical activities. The staff follows a timetable throughout the day and plan daily and weekly activities to ensure that all children have the opportunity to take part in all activities, including children who have special needs. French and Welsh are also incorporated into the timetable.

 

Toddler Unit - Seven members of staff look after the toddlers and the unit contains a playroom, quiet room, craft room and a conservatory. The children are organised into smaller groups within each area, learning through first hand, play-based activities and experiences. The groups follow a structured day. This adheres itself to the differing ages, abilities and stages of development of all the children.

 

Baby Unit - This part of the day nursery contains a conservatory, a quiet room, a large cot room and an area for feeding and is overseen by four members of staff. There is an assortment of equipment to allow for each stage of development and the unit adopts a very calm atmosphere.

 

Our Approach to Early Learning follows the requirements laid out by the Care and Social Services Inspectorate of Wales and we provide a well organised environment, consistent daily routines and an approach that lends itself to the all round development of the child, whilst recognising that children develop at their own rate.

 

Mealtimes
Everyday, meals are freshly prepared on the premises and a morning snack and drink is served at around 10am, followed by a hot two course lunch and drink. Afternoon tea is served at 3:30pm consisting of fruit, cheese and freshly made sandwiches. Special diets can be easily accommodated.

In September 2012, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

If you want to take your child to a nursery where they are going to thrive, then the Homestead Nursery is certainly the place to send them!Like most parents we,visited quite a few establishments before making a decision where to leave our son. The daunting task was over the moment we had a tour of the nursery. You only had to see the happy children, caring staff, and willingness to answer any questions to know that this was exactly the right place to send him. Our son loves it here and has been attending for over 2 years. He loves the outdoors- so much space for them to run around, the staff, the food(We would just like a few of their recipies to try!)gardening, music sessions and is now even learning welsh and french. Being our first child we were keen for him to socialise with other children and he has come on leaps and bounds!He is now in the pre school section where his development in the last few weeks is noticeable and this is down to the structure and dedication of the staff.

The Homestead Nursery is by far the best in Wrexham. As a new mother, my partner and I look at every Nursery in Wrexham, and from arriving up the Drive we both fell in love with the safe setting, and beautiful surroundings. Leon our Son too loves coming up the drive, as he gets really excited about spending time with the staff and his friends. I would definatly recommend to Anyone.

I would highly recommend this nursery, as our daughter has attended The Homestead nursery since she was 12 weeks old, we were a little worried with her being so young but Carol and her staff soon reassured us with their extremely high standard of care in such a lovely environment. There is a great deal of feedback when we go to collect our daughter on what she has been doing during the day. We feel she is in a safe place while we are at work and it's so much appreciated, thank you to all the staff at Homestead Nursery.

The nursery is set within it's own grounds and has plenty of outdoor space for the children to play in, including its own woodland. The building itself has the feel of a primary school and is exceptionally clean and well laid out and includes a separate craft room. My 15th month old son has attended since he was 9 months old and has settled remarkably well. The staff were extremely supportive of us both during the settling in period and continue to be so now. They follow his daily routine and write down everything he does during the day for me to read when he comes home. They happily discuss at length any issues that arise and I never feel rushed. I would happily recommend the nursery to any parent as my son's contentment at attending is testament enough to the professionalism of the staff and the caring and stimulating environment they provide.

In June 2012, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

My husband and I started looking for a nursery for our first child before he was born. Both of us felt very comfortable with what we saw and heard at our first visit to The Homestead. As Carol guided us around the nursery, all the children said hello to us and Carol knew each of their names. The children in each of the rooms were happy and at ease and the older ones were very confident in saying hello and chatting to us about their day. When it came to our son's first day I was surprised at how relaxed we both were about leaving him. Our son has now been at The Homestead for a year. He is developing into a happy and confident child which is most definitly encouraged by the fact he loves his time at nursery. My husband and I are very grateful to the staff at The Homestead for making a great deal easier, what could have been a stressful time for all of us.

In June 2012, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

My wife and I began the daunting task of looking for a nursery for our son, who is now 14 months old. During her maternity leave my wife went to the Homestead and she was adamant that this was the place. I was skeptical, the thought of leaving my son with a stranger never filled me with joy. I wanted to see this place for myself. As you drive up to the building you can't fail to be impressed. Set in rolling grounds it is a parents dream, safe and secure. Once in the building you go around the different age rooms and the dedication to the development of children and the environment in which they grow is evident. The staff work so hard to ensure that you as the parent are at ease, never too busy to chat and answer anything you ask. They care for each child as if they were their own and our son is developing at such a rate in comparison to his relatives, largely due to the Homestead. If you are in any doubt about a nursery, visit the Homestead and I promise you'll never choose better.

In June 2012, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

You always get a warm welcome at The Homestead. My eldest son attended there as a tot and thrived, so when my youngest was born I was immediately on the case to ensure there would be a place for him there, I would not have even considered anywhere else! To be honest there are many other nurseries nearer to my home and work, but the extra journey time is worth every minute. There is a low staff turnover, a great sign of 'happy staff, happy children'. The ladies are cheerful, kind, hardworking and very professional. The rooms are bright, colourful and immaculate, and the activities provided are fun and stimulating for the children. Routines are established to suit each child and the variety of food cooked and prepared is excellent. Carol is a great manager who seems to strive for the best quality of care for each individual child. I recommended the Homestead many times 7 years ago, and I would still do so now every time.

In June 2012, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

I am a new mother and was looking for a place for my little boy to go to, when I was due to return back to work. When i drove down the drive I immediatley fell in love with the place; it felt very warm & welcoming. The staff here are second to none, you are always greeted with a friendly smile and they take the time to ask how you are. When I leave my litte boy he looks so happy and straight away he is busy playing with the toys, that for me is very reassuring knowing he is happy to be left there. When it comes to picking up time; again the staff take there timeout to tell you how he got on (even though there are other children there & they to have there jobs to do) You are provided with a daily baby report which again for me is great as it shows me what he has been upto & what he has eaten. My little boy has settled in straight away & it gives me great confidence in knowing my child is been cared & looked after by a great team & I don't have to worry if my little boy is ok..

I loved the Homestead the first time I went there. I have always been impressed with the standard of care, cleanliness & facilities. The staff are always so wonderful, I just can't find fault! I moved jobs & I actually travel out of my way to keep my daughter where both she loves the nursery & so do I. It is a wonderful environment for children & I just wish she could stay there forever but she now has to start school in September & we will all miss it!

We have been very happy with the high standard of care offered at the Homestead. Our son has been attending for 3years now and also our 2yr old goes. They have both been very happy there and look forward to their days at the Nursery. They particular love the music machine afternoons! Carol, Chris and the rest of the team have been excellent at providing for the children's needs. There is low staff turnover and everyone appears happy in their work. Of particular help this last year has been the pick up service from the Rofft Nursery School. Well done to all at the Homestead for achieving such a high standard! We have no hesitation on recommending this Nursery to all.

In June 2011, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

Our daughter has attended the nursery for the last 3 years. She absolutely loves it - and we are full of confidence that not only is she safe and cared for, but encouraged to develop and become a proper little person! Every aspect of the care is exceptional in every unit from baby through to pre-school; excellent and varied activities, a bright, stimulating environment, superb food and lots of outdoor activities to wear them out! The staff are wonderful; they really care and do everything they can to assist the parents (and sometimes take the lead) with key stages (potty training etc.) and provide continuity between nursery and home. The nursery plays such a key part in our daughter's development and has helped her become the happy, sociable little girl we are so proud of today. We really cannot thank everyone at the Homestead enough.

In June 2011, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

I have dealt with Carol and the staff at the Homestead for the past 4 years and have one child who has sadly left the nursery and one currently attending. The level of care and dedication throughout the nursery is exceptional. I feel my children have been given a fantastic start in life and am 100% confident there is no better environment for them to be nurtured in outside of the safety of our home. I have recommended The Homestead on numerous occasions to friends and will continue to do so, even long after my children have grown. Thanks Gill Hayes

My son and daughter both attend The Homestead, and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. The staff are caring and attentive, the facilities are great, and the quality and variety of the home-cooked food is fantastic. Both my children started in the baby unit, and the high quality of care has been consistent as they moved into the toddler unit and then pre-school. My son has just started school, and has settled in very quickly, which I'm sure is due to the excellent way that the pre-school is run in the Homestead.

The Homestead has been the nursery for both of my children and without it I truely do not think that they would be the confident and happy children that they are today. The owners Carol and Chris have the most wonderful manner to them and their staff are an absolute assest. I would not hesitate in recommending the homestead as the perfect nursery and starting point in any child's social education.

In July 2008, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

My son has attended the Homestead for the past 4 years, and he has enjoyed every moment. As a full time working mother, I cannot recommend their services highly enough. At every key stage of my sonʼs development they have given me exceptional advice and support, and even told me when he was ready for potty training. I have had complete peace of mind when leaving him in Carolʼs care, and the staff have been truly caring, considerate and informative.In particular I apprecaited the help they gave taking my son to school in the afternoon and picking him up again. I have always recommended the Homestead to my friends for their children, and would do so again.

In June 2008, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

Finding a nursery for my son was one of the most daunting tasks I have ever undertaken, I couldn’t imagine that I would ever feel comfortable leaving him with a ‘stranger’ – then I visited The Homestead. Before I had even finished looking around I had made my mind up, Carol and all of the girls that work there are impeccably professional, friendly and caring. The location is amazing with so much outside space and each unit appears to provide everything the children need. I placed my first son here initially for a six month period whilst my childminder was on maternity leave, however he never did return to that childminder and my second child is now attending The Homestead too. If you are looking for a nursery in the area I would urge you go and view The Homestead, once you’ve seen it no other will quite compare.

In May 2008, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

My little boy Matthew has attended the nursery for nearly 3 years now, initially for 2 days but now 3 days a week. I strongly believe that Carol and her staff have had a big influence on his development into the bright, happy child that he is. Matthew always looks forward to his days there. From the start I very quickly felt comfortable leaving him in the baby unit, and am confident that there is nowhere better in Wrexham or any part of the country that could have looked after him better whilst I had to work. I am only now sad that he will have to leave soon to start school.

My daughter has been at The Homestead since she was a baby. I visited a number of nurseries before The Homestead but knew the minute that I walked through the door that this was the place she would be happiest. The fact that the children play outdoors as much as possible was important to me. Carol, Chris and all the staff do an exceptional job and are always friendly, helpful and supportive. I just hope that my daughter likes going to school (in September) as much as she has enjoyed being at the Homestead.

In April 2008, said about The Homestead Day Nursery

Both my children attend Homestead. My son had a little difficulty settling in as he started here at 18 month having already been in a different nursery. Carol and all the ladies in the toddler unit were exceptional in the care that they gave him and the effort that they took to help him settle in. He is now in the pre-school section and we have decided to keep him her until he starts full time education. My daughter is in the baby unit and she is so happy to go there. All the people that we have come into contact with at Homestead are friendly, courtious and are always on hand to help. I can not speak more highly of them.

My daughter has attended the homestead for the last 3 years she first went from 4 months old and is now in the pre school unit, she loves going to "pre school" as she calls it, and canʼt wait to get there every morning. The care that the children receive here by all the staff is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to anyone.

Both my children attend the nursery and have been going for 2 years. Carol, Chris and all their staff are exceptional. The premises are spotless, the girls are fantastic and Carol and Chris are always around to assist when needed. When your children go into nursery it can, at first, be a heart wrenching time, but Carol always reassures you, whatever the circumstances, and you know your children are being very well looked after. Thanks to all at the Homestead who are "truly exceptional" in our eyes!
