Fully inclusive package

Welcome to Grasshoppers Day Nursery 

At Grasshoppers Day Nursery in St Albans the warm and welcoming environment ensures that your child’s individual needs are prioritised and their interests nurtured. 

Children’s days are packed full of activities designed in line with EYFS principles and implemented by our highly trained and knowledgeable staff.  

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.

Their extra-curricular activities include Debutots drama classes every other Friday for the over 2's and Mandarin Language classes on a Tuesday morning for all age groups.

 So whether it’s learning about the natural world in our potting shed or exploring our community with regular local walks, there is always something going on at Grasshoppers. 


“Children have very close bonds with their key person and staff. They demonstrate they are extremely happy and feel safe in the staff's care. Children rapidly grow in confidence, which is supported through the staff's skilled approach to praise and encouragement.” Ofsted Inspection 2018
