About

Creating a naturally curious environment for young minds to enhance development and learning through play and exploration, encouraging self-thinking, risk-taking, problem-solving and independence so that they are eager to embark on the next phase in their schooling. 

Our History

Davidson Roberts was initially set up in 2006 with the purchase of our first nursery Buckden Day Nursery in Cambridgeshire. Since then, the group has grown steadily, acquiring or starting up several more nurseries, pre-schools and out of school and holiday clubs in and around the local region.

The ethos of our nurseries is to establish a home-from-home environment in which children feel settled and happy. A happy child is one that will explore the many and varied resources available and engage with peers and staff. Consequently a happy child will learn and develop at a pace right for them and grow in confidence day by day. 

Our Ethos

The ethos of our nurseries is to establish a home-from-home environment in which children feel settled and happy. A happy child is one that will explore the many and varied resources available and engage with peers and staff. Consequently a happy child will learn and develop at a pace right for them and grow in confidence day by day.

The backbone of this ethos is the staff. Our commitment to supporting training, development and career progression lead to higher staff retention rates, and motivated and happy staff – which in turn leads to happy children.

We very much look forward to meeting you and your child – and providing you with an excellent childcare environment and service.
