OUTDOOR AREABack in 1987, the White House Nursery became an established day-care setting on the Early Years Register, and both the compulsory and voluntary parts of the Childcare Register. It has been operating for over 25 years from a large two-story detached house in the heart of Borrowash, which has been totally renovated and extended to meet the needs of all children aged 0-5 years around the Derbyshire area.


The nursery now provides funded early education for three and four-year-olds, so please contact us for more information on this. Over the years, the nursery has become so popular, many developments have been made to accommodate the number of families registering their children to the nursery. Now the nursery holds a maximum of 110 children at any one time and still maintains the high standards it always has, which is strongly reflected in our Ofsted report. With a strong group of experienced staff, we have excellent support systems in place to develop children with special educational needs and/or disabilities, and also children who speak English as an additional language.



The specially landscaped and fully enclosed garden provides an excellent outdoor play area for all age groups, designed to meet their needs at each developmental stage.


We have an outdoor class room which provides shade from the sun and shelter from winter weather. We have the nursery allotment where the children plant their own food, and learn about how different things grow. We also have a barked nature wildlife area with a trim trail, so the children can develop spacial awareness and build their confidence with risk taking.


As of 2018 we have also redesigned the construction area complete with JCB digger and sand pit, where the children develop gross motor skills and problem solving. We also have access to the large football field which is shared with Kids Club, where the children can participate in group games and sports day! We even have a tree swing for the children to enjoy.


The garden has been invaluable in allowing the children to explore, have fun, be independent, make choices and learn in all areas of the curriculum within a safe and secure environment. Inside and outside areas are combined in a ‘free flow’ style allowing children to move around the different environments via patio doors.


The baby room is situated on the ground floor, on the right as you enter the building. There are two rooms plus a separate bedroom within this unit. We have a large, carpeted playroom where the babies have room to crawl and play – and also a separate room for “messy activities” and mealtimes, this room leads out through patio doors to their own outside play area.

TODDLERS (18 MONTHS – 2 YEARS)Toddlers are situated in a large multi-purpose room which is separated into two areas. One is a large, carpeted playroom and the other is for creative opportunities and mealtimes. There are patio doors which lead out to the garden and also access to a separate changing area which is shared with infants.
