0-3 Childcare



Our 0-3 childcare is the first step in Bridgewater’s unique 0-11 learning experience where children learn in a safe stimulating environment, following the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework.


We have a ‘state of the art’ purpose built facility, to the west of the city, with panoramic views of the Derwent Valley. It is easy accessible by car or public transport.

We strive to build a successful, inclusive, purposeful and happy community.

Our vision is to provide high quality childcare, education and community services for all, ensuring that from birth every child has the best possible start in life.

Staff have a wealth of experience and knowledge working within a highly effective team.

Your child will be allocated a Key Worker who will work closely with you both to build a strong secure relationship.

Our planning relies on our skilled practitioners using quality interactions to build on children’s knowledge and extending their ideas and interests.

We have a speech and language therapist on site and strive to help children develop and use language effectively and imaginatively.

Children who attended Bridgewater’s 0-3 provision have made better than expected progress in end of year assessments.
