Welcome to Davenport Lodge Nursery School

Welcome to Davenport Lodge Nursery School where Early Years Education has been delivered since 1968. We provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment where children from birth to rising five learn and have fun together. I firmly believe that every child is capable of great success and our dedicated staff work with the children to achieve their personal best. High expectations and success within a positive environment encourage children to be confident, independent learners. For a look around the nursery, please contact the office to book an appointment.
