We are a full day care nursery set in an idyllic location, in the grounds of a pretty village church, on the outskirts of North Weald Village in Essex. We aim to create a home from home environment where children can learn in a fun and subtle way. Our nursery is open from 7am till 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
On the 9th October, Scribbles Day Nursery had their expected OFSTED Inspection. OFSTED Inspections are carried out every three years as a matter of course. I am very proud and excited to be able to tell you all, we got graded as OUTSTANDING in all areas. This outcome is a result of exceptional commitment from our amazing nursery team and the passionate way they approach caring for children. The full report will be published to OFSTED’s website in due course but in the meantime, I would like to thank all the parents who gave such glowing comments to the OFSTED Inspector. We now must look to the future and continue with our quest to carry on building the nursery, so it remains outstanding.
In February 2018 Scribbles Day Nursery was awarded a Millie’s Mark award. Millie’s Mark is named after Millie Thompson who sadly died after choking on food at a nursery in 2012 when she was just nine months old. Millie’s parents, Dan and Joanne Thompson, founded Millie’s Trust and have successfully campaigned for changes to first aid requirements for childcare providers. Having the Millie’s Mark award demonstrates our commitment to going above and beyond the minimum requirements for keeping children safe. It shows that all our staff working directly with children not only hold a paediatric first aid certificate but that they are also competent in how to apply this in practice. Achieving Millie’s Mark shows we have the correct procedures and documentation in place and gives parents that greater reassurance.

Our 15 month old has been attending since mid January and the staff at Scribbles are doing a wonderful job with him. He has made excellent progress.
It doesn't matter who has been caring for him during the day, he always wants one last cuddle before we leave. I wouldn't have anyone else look after him!
All my three children have attended, my oldest starting in February 2012 and my youngest starting in January 2018. Scribbles provides a caring, stimulating, focused, stimulating and fun environment. Its greatest asset is its committed, experienced and consistent staff. I'd recommend it to anyone.
My son has been going to Scribbles since he was 10 months old (now 3yrs), i couldnt be happier with the nursary, it really is a home from home environment, the carers are all so friendly and kind. He runs into the nursary and can not wait to play with his friends! They also provide a great full programme of activities for the children - every day is an adventure for them :)
My children have been attending Scribbles for the past 3.5 years and my youngest since she was 7 months old. They have both been so happy and I couldn't be happier with the care they receive. The staff are all very caring, hard working and go the extra mile to provide an environment for the children to thrive in. My daughter loves the extra activities provided and has such a wonderful friendship with her key workers. The meals are cooked on site and provide home cooked meals and snacks also the opportunity to try different foods to celebrate different occasions which is lovely.
My daughter Isabel (2.5 years) has been going to Scribbles for the last 18 months. The staff care caring, kind, creative and the nursery is a happy place. Isabel loves going there and has settled in well. They do so many activities and she is always coming home with her latest creations. The nursery feels more like a family warm setting for her to looked after. I feel comfortable that she is cared for there. Food is home cooked and there are lots of extra curricula activities to join in with.
