Welcome to Julia Durbin Day Nursery

We prioritise outdoor play here at Julia Durbin Day Nursery in Oxford.

All children have access to the garden on a daily basis as we recognise the importance of outdoor play on children’s learning and development. Children love digging for buried treasure in our sandpit and going on a bug hunt in our nature area.

Children’s days are packed full of daily, age appropriate activities designed in line with EYFS principles and include music lessons and regular yoga sessions.

Our knowledgeable and highly skilled staff work in partnership with parents to deliver an exceptional and Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ service to you.
