About Us

Playday Nursery has been established in Newton Aycliffe since 1995. We are a private family owned day care provision providing complete childcare for children 0 – 5 yrs.

Our premises is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac at the Simpasture Gate junction of Finchale Road near Aycliffe Business Park, and benefits from its own car park and spacious outdoor play area. We have four fully equipped rooms to suit the needs and requirements of each age group. Children are also taken on a variety of outings within the local community.

We aim to provide a warm welcoming environment where children are supported to reach their full potential according to their individual needs. We seek to offer a childcare place, wherever possible, for all children and will undertake to make reasonable adjustments within the setting to support any child with any learning difficulties and / or disabilities. Your child is allocated a key person who will assist in the settling in of your child and will get to know your child so that they can fully support your child’s development.

Our nursery has been described as “Excellent” by our parents and “Outstanding” by Ofsted during our last inspection in September 2016. To read our latest Ofsted report click here.

“For our family your support has been amazing, also the knowledge and time you have given us is far more than we could have asked for. We are so grateful for everything you have all done.”
