About The White House

Day Nursery

Welcome to our Day Nursery and Out of School Club in West Bridgford's town centre, for children aged 0 to 8 years. We provide award-winning childcare from 7.30 am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday. We pride ourselves on our intuitive and individualistic approach to learning, that we've developed and nurtured throughout our 31 years of childcare.

Powered by play

We pack our week full of thoughtful, stimulating activities, designed to nurture and grow every aspect of your child’s cognitive development. The teams follow the children's interests - everyday is different here! Examples of some of the ways we learn through play.

  • Forest School, run by Donna, who is qualified as a Forest School Leader, takes learning out of the classroom into either the local woodland or in our own Urban Forest School

  • Using a child’s natural curiosity and imagination to go back to basics, using ordinary household items and bric-a-brac alongside more "traditional" toys

  • Loose parts play a huge part in nursery life - children love anything they can move, manipulate, control and change within their play.

Location and outdoor play

Our cosy, white house is a stone’s throw from West Bridgford Park.


We take our children on regular adventures to West Bridgford Library and explore our colourful local community with pride.

Our fully enclosed garden had a makeover in 2019 and creates an inviting area for all ages. 

NEW 2021 - who needs a car park right? The children have taken this over and we have created an Urban Forest School where the children have a variety of loose parts, natural materials and tools to work with.  Who can resist a toasted muffin and hot chocolate by the fire....?

Nutrition and mealtimes

We help our children discover the wonders of food and nutrition through social mealtimes, full of conversation and interaction. We support children to be independent and to share their experiences with their peers and team members.

Our wonderful chefs, Greg and Ian, offer a variety of foods including breakfast, two course lunch and high tea with fresh fruits and vegetables appearing daily on the menu.

We strive to offer nutritionally balanced meals catering to most variations in diet.


We diligently support children with allergies.
