Welcome to Hemmells Park Nursery
Second Steps, Hemmells, was established on 1st November 2011 by the proprietors Mrs Sharon Watson & Mrs Lorraine Griffith with the intention of providing further high quality care to the under 5’s in the local area.
Sharon is the proprietor of 4 nurseries and has the experience of working in the childcare field for over 25 years. Lorraine is the manager of Second Steps, Durham Road and has had 20 years experience in childcare.
This nursery caters for 33 children, aged 6 weeks to 5 years, and is open from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday (excluding public Bank Holidays).
The aim of our nursery is to provide a happy, homely environment for all the children in our care with emphasis on individual attention and learning through play.
Our philosophy is that a child should be happy, safe and healthy in a stimulating and educational environment.
We ensure that our service is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children, particularly those that arise from their ethnic heritage, social and economic background, gender, ability or disability.
We aim to work in partnership with our parents to provide a service that will reach their individual needs, may that be hours, advice or support.
