Parents as Partners

Parents are children's first and most enduring educators. When parents and carers work together in varying environments, the results have a positive impact on the child's development and learning. Therefore, we seek to gather a variety of information at induction to provide the basis for an ongoing open and honest relationship with our families.

Regulation and Partnerships

We are regulated by Ofsted. We enjoy partnerships with Derbyshire County Council Children and Young Adults Dept, various health departments and all of our feeder schools.


The Pines Day Nursery is situated on Stanton Road, Ilkeston and opened in 1996. It is operated from a large converted 3 storey Victorian property and is registered for 83 children a day. Our nursery operates between the hours of 07:30 and 18:00, for 51 weeks of the year. We are committed to providing a high quality of care and educational experience for all children. We have clear principles and aims and we work hard to provide a broad and balanced range of age and stage approriate learning experiences for all children in our care. Our dedicated team are widely experienced in making those first steps away from home as comforting and enjoyable as possible.

What our parents say...

"If you take you, as mum, on your best days, add tons of other great qualities then you'll come close to what these ladies offer our kids. They've helped shape my children into what they are today and I will be forever grateful for their patience, love and dedication to their jobs." - Please see Facebook for many more.
