Casa dei Bambini Day Nursery

Casa dei Bambini Day Nursery is located in St Johns Hall, St Johns Street, Winchester, SO23 0HG. Registered for 47 children, we are an early years setting specialising in Montessori methodology and practice and integrating EYFS curriculum and Montessori curriculum.

We work with children aged 6 months to 5 years and have 3 rooms in the nursery for each age group. We believe children’s safety, protection and on-going learning is paramount. At Casa dei Bambini we place an emphasis on daily living activities, working on the children’s skills for life. At a young age they are shown activities for independence and how to respond in a social environment. We follow a balanced curriculum that is structured but allows each individual child to develop gently at their own pace, fostering a love of learning. Our children’s learning is nurtured by qualified, sensitive and well informed early year’s professionals who prepare rich indoor and outdoor learning environments which actively supports children’s play and exploration and leads to creative thinking.

Our Nursery is open for 51 weeks per year, excluding the bank holidays and is open from 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday. We provide fresh and healthy meals in our Nursery kitchen which has 5 star rating.

The Lido operates on a term time only basis. Our tea club and holiday club provide flexible, wrap around childcare for children from the age of 2 years between 8am and 6pm, 51 weeks per year.

At nursery we follow a curriculum that is structured but that allows each individual child to develop gently, at their own pace, fostering a love of learning. Our Montessori curriculum (which is linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage) is well balanced and focuses on the individual child and their ‘Learning Journey’. We also offer lots of other activities such as swimming, rugby tots, cooking and a Forest Day.

Hartley House at the Lido has been described as “outstanding” in all aspects of its provision after a visit from Ofsted in August 2017. We have found to be outstanding in all categories – the effectiveness of the leadership and management, the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, personal development, behaviour and welfare and outcomes for children.
