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.

We have a recent report from Ofsted which you can read by clicking here.

“Playday provide such a fantastic range of activities for Chloe both inside the nursery, in the garden area and also venturing out into the local community on walks. We are kept regularly up to date with wider nursery news through newsletters and emails, we also have access to Learning Journals where we can see what has been going on within the nursery that day and also general updates. I really cannot praise the nursery enough as they have been fantastic with both of my daughters, made them feel safe, encouraged and supported throughout their journey with them.” (Parent)
