Hydra Tots private day nursery provides a truly amazing and affordable childcare, for babies, toddlers and pre-school age children.

Hydra Tots Private Day nursery was established in 2011 and expanded in 2013 and then again in 2015 to meet the demand for places.

We are situated in a private industrial estate within Ecclesfield with easy access to the M1,which puts us in a great location for commuting parents and offering childcare to a wider community, with a large car-parking area directly outside the nursery building. Open from 8am to 6pm we offer Full Days, Short Days till 4pm and AM/PM Sessions as well as Holiday add on Sessions.

Hydra Tots is open for fifty-one weeks each year, closing at Christmas for a working week plus bank holidays.

We believe that it is important that when your child is at nursery, that you feel confident and reassured . We have a warm, friendly and happy nursery where each child is encouraged to reach their full potential through praise, sensitivity and mutual respect.

We recruit only the best, highly-qualified, passionate and committed staff and we invest heavily in furthering their knowledge, enhancing their skills and retaining them. We have created a team that take pride and are extremely passionate about Hydra Tots as a work place, and the children they care for and the parents and carers that walk through our doors.

We meet your child’s needs

Our purpose built nursery is specially designed to meet the needs of babies, toddlers and pre-school children — each with their own wonderful indoor and outdoor spaces, packed with engaging toys and fun activities that stimulate exploration and learning for each child’s particular developmental stage.

The nursery has a very modern feel with lots of space and plenty of natural light that floods in .The walls are carefully decorated with the children’s work that take pride and centre stage, the rooms are filled with happy content children that busily go about their day discovering all that we have to offer.

Hydra Tots seeks wherever possible, to enhance the quality of the children’s total life experiences, fostering and supporting their development and education.

Working with Parents

We pride ourselves in involving parents and carers in their child’s learning and development. Parents are introduced to the child’s key worker on induction and an all about me and daily routines document is completed with their key worker to ensure we know the child’s routines, their likes, dislikes, allergies and interests from the starting point of your child’s nursery education.

We work in close partnership with parents and carers as this is important in enhancing children’s development and learning whilst at nursery and at home. We pride ourselves on building strong, trusting relationships with our parents and in making them feel welcome and valued right from the start.
