If extra hours are needed at short notice or days need to be changed, the nursery always tries to accommodate needs, even making room for siblings during school holidays
Upperthorpe Children’s Day Nursery provides care for children from birth to 11 years old.
Set in a conservation area, Upperthorpe Nursery offers a unique, safe and stimulating environment for your child to enjoy. Situated on a main commuter route, we are positioned close to Darlington Memorial Hospital and the town centre, with ample parking facilities on site.
We are a Private Day Nursery approved by the Local Authority to provide FREE Childcare for children aged from 2 years and FREE Early Pre-School Education for 3 & 4 years olds.
Our staff are highly dedicated, trained and experienced in the care of children of all ages.

What the parents say
Helpful and happy staff- the staff are cheerful and attentive to the children. They are able to put the children at ease and make them feel at home
Family feel -the older children are often helping out the younger children and staff. The staff and owners all work together and comfortably alongside each other to create a family feel and homely atmosphere.
Secure- the building has security cameras, intercom entrance and there is always someone on the entrance desk to greet visitors to the building. There is a password system when children are collected by someone other than parents or carers that are known to the staff.
Spacious building and outdoor spaces- the building itself is very impressive and the rooms are light and spacious. The outdoor spaces are huge and benefit from a sheltered ‘playhouse’ for use in bad weather. The outdoor areas are also very secure and cannot be accessed without permission.
Practical staff/Common sense approach- excellent contact and communication with parents if child is upset or ill, but will administer Calpol or other medication with permission rather than requiring the child to be taken out of nursery.
