Seagulls Day Nursery

Seagulls Day Nursery

A large, purpose-designed nursery with a beautiful garden

Seagulls Day Nursery is located on the Shrublands Centre site in Gorleston, just off Magdalen Way. It's open daily (Mon-Fri) from 8am to 5pm, except bank holidays, inset days and the Christmas period and offers day care for up to 62 children aged 3 months to 5 years.

Seagulls is our largest nursery and shares a building with the Seagulls Sure Start Children's Centre. It has 3 rooms: the Seahorse Room for 0-2 year olds, the Starfish and Puffin Rooms for 2-3 year olds and the Angelfish Room for the 3-5 year olds. This allows practitioners to focus on the individual learning needs of the different age groups (see Curriculum Ages - 2-3 Year Olds and 3-5 Year Olds). The Seahorse and Puffin Rooms have separate garden areas, but the Starfish and Angelfish Rooms both open out onto the beautiful Seagulls garden, complete with digging pits, potting and messy play areas.

During its most recent Ofsted inspection (January 2017) Seagulls was found to be 'Good' in all areas and was described as "a well-managed setting where youngsters learn through play led by professional staff with high standards".

Fees range from £19.25 per half day to £43.00 for full day care. Download our fees and sessional info sheet for more information.
