So you’re interested in Cherubs Vale View? Let Nursery Manager, Laura tell you more about it…
“Cherubs Day Nursery, Vale View is a large nursery located in Bulwell, Nottingham. There are regular bus and train links into Nottingham, the surrounding areas and further afield and direct access to the A60 and M1, which means it’s great for both local and commuting parents alike. It’s important to note that Cherubs Vale View can only take children for full days in Pre-School and children that access the funded-hours childcare, therefore the nursery is only open during term time. However, Step Ahead Kids’ Club also operates out of Cherubs Vale View for before and after school care in addition to Holiday Care, where a full schedule operates. If you are looking for childcare for children under the age of three, please visit Cherubs Executive House. They are located on St Alban’s Road too and are able to care for children of all ages.
We have a very well-established team here at Cherubs Vale View. Many of my colleagues have been here for years and it’s great to see the same smiley faces everyday. It’s great for us and even better for the children as it means that they are able to build strong bonds with the childcare team, enhancing their time at nursery. All our childcare team are DBS checked and training towards accredited qualifications. We also train the entire team in Paediatric First Aid and Safe Guarding, the children’s safety and welfare is paramount and we know, first hand, that there can be no compromise on this.
Finally, a little more about me. I have been part of Cherubs Nurseries since 2007. Since then I’ve progressed to where I am today. I decided to pursue a career in childcare as I have always wanted to work with children from a young age, since then it has been incredibly rewarding. I currently hold an NVQ Level 3 in Children’s and Young People’s Workforce and am qualified in Paediatric First Aid, amongst many others.
We would love the opportunity to show off the nursery, and would like to invite you to come and view the nursery at your leisure. Come and say hello, have a look around and meet the team and see for yourself what we do at Cherubs Vale View, that makes us so special.”

Our baby suite is a unique environment tailor made to stimulate very young minds as they begin to explore the world. Designed based on the latest Baby Brain research the baby suits are the perfect environment for your child.
Our toddler suite invites our young inquisitive and enthusiastic children to join in with the carefully planned and organised exciting activities throughout the day, all within a purpose built environment. There is real focus on providing lots of physical adventures as well as opportunities for quiet time, creative time and role play. Our open door policy encourages parents to pop in at any time.
Our Pre-School is a large and open environment where children are free to make their own choices. There are numerous activity areas and resources are stored at child-level so that children can lead their own play.
Heightening the senses of our children, our sensory area within our baby suite is an environment full of toys and objects which children love to see, hear and feel.
Our children love the large garden complete with bespoke outdoor learning environments. The unique space has been created in consultation with our children and is based on the latest research.
Our nursery provides the opportunity for our children to experience forestry style experiences right outside the door. These experiences provide children with the opportunity to discover the natural environment, play within it and share fun times with their friends hiding, building and exploring.
The next Bill Gates? Our nursery features the latest IT facilities for children to play and learn on. From our tablet tables to computers, Children are able to use these facilities as an essential learning resource, helping to equip them for the technological world we live in.
We know how important it is for children to eat a healthy balanced diet. This is why our nursery has a dedicated chef who develops nutritionally balanced meals for your child to enjoy and help them start good eating habits.
Our Family Room is a warm and inviting area. The room is often used for informal meetings but can be used for breast feeding and to meet other family needs.
Blossom Educational Software
Blossom allows the childcare team to effectively track your child’s learning journey, electronically, via iPads. You can view this, at any time, and contribute via the parents smartphone app.
Step Ahead Kids’ Club
Our Step Ahead Kids’ Club runs multi-activity and action-packed clubs throughout the School holidays. From days out at Alton Towers to our famous Chocolate Parties, children come back year after year!
Food for thought
Our seasonal menus are nutritionally balanced and varied, which allows the children to experience a wide variety of flavours and textures. As for standards we expect a lot from ourselves and so can you. Our kitchen is regularly expected by the Food Standards Agency, where we have been praised for our high standards. We’re also proud to cater for children with special dietary needs including allergies, intolerances and cultural preferences.
