Savoy Road Nursery

Child Dynamix Community Nursery Savoy Road opened in 2010 situated in part of the Ings Centre, within the grounds of Ings shopping centre. This means there is lots of space and parking to be able to drop off and collect your child.

As the nursery sits within a community of local shops and is also in walking distance to East Park, we are able to extend the children’s learning beyond the confines of the nursery walls. Our nursery is open plan, with the kitchen as the focal point. The open plan space means children are able to form relationships with all children who attend our setting as part of their time at nursery. This supports their own confidence, sense of security and belonging as they are seen as part of their nursery and connect with children of different ages.

Nursery - have a look around

Our nursery is well equipped, light and airy with plenty of natural light. The physical layout means we have three age and developmentally appropriate spaces for children. There is access to a shared outside space which can adapt to the needs of the children, and the baby room has a separate outdoor area under a canopy. We work hard to make our garden a natural environment for children to explore, with an outdoor kitchen and a woodland feel, offering them a wonderful places to play and learn.

The separate nursery office opens up directly in to the nursery area, with separate laundry and storage spaces. Our kitchen is a professionally equipped, and the nursery cook provides fresh meals each day. Naturally we take account of any dietary need and would be happy to discuss this with you.

Due to current restrictions we are unable to offer visits to our setting during the day, we can arrange a show-around at 7.30am or after 6pm but hope the photos below help you to get a sense of our nursery. Please be reassured that should you choose to take up a place, we will ensure you and your child get plenty of time to ‘settle-in’ before your child starts.

Lizzie Darnell-Wragg

Hi I’m Lizzie Darnell-Wragg, and I am currently the Nursery Manager at Child Dynamix Community nursery – Savoy Road. I started my career at Child Dynamix, as part of the team at Janet Genter Community Nursery (now known as Child Dynamix community Nursery) as an adult trainee in April 2003, after serving as a mechanic in the Army.

I completed a L3 in Early Years Care and Education as an adult trainee and have since completed a BA honours degree in Early Year’s Policy and Practice. I have now worked for Child Dynamix for 18 years, and progressed on through positions, and managed our Preston Road nursery for 11 years, before moving to the Savoy Road Nursery in February this year. I am currently studying a Masters in the lifelong learning and I am interested in supporting vulnerable adults with their learning and development, as well as enhancing the breadth of knowledge for early year’s practitioners.

Seeing children grow and develop from babies, to now seeing some of them as parents themselves, gives me overwhelming pride and hope that I inspire others to achieve the most out of their lives.

Tanya Musgrave

I have worked for Child Dynamix since October of 2016 and have over 10 years’ experience of working with children between the ages of 6 weeks and 5 years. I began at the Boulevard nursery when it opened with Naomi and the rest of the team, and I am now based at Savoy Road.

Since starting with Child Dynamix I have completed my foundation degree in Childhood Studies and then continued my development by completing a BA in Early Childhood Education and Care

I am the appointed SENCO for the Savoy Road nursery and have lots of experience working with children with Special Educational Needs. I keep up to date with SENDCo training and like to know how best to support our SEND children.

When I was younger, working with children was never anything I wanted to do, I wanted to be a nurse. That was until I completed my work placement at my former primary school – I changed my mind within half an hour! From then on I wanted to work with children, my aim was to be a teacher in a primary school but the more time I have spent in private day nurseries, the more I have wanted to help younger children.

Tori Houfe

I began with Child Dynamix as a student in 2015. After 6 months I was offered a supply practitioner contract, followed by an offer of a fulltime position in the baby room in October 2016. I was delighted to apply and be appointed as the nursery’s Senior Practitioner in July 2019 a position I still hold.  

It is a real pleasure to work with the youngest children in our setting, and to be around for those first development millstones such as walking and talking. Seeing our babies grow, being able to watch them go from strength to strength knowing ‘I have helped to achieve this’, always makes me go home with a smile on my face. I like being able to offer that extra help and support to our families, the children and my colleagues – I work alongside a fantastic team of practitioners.

Although I have spent time in other areas of the nursery, my main experience is based within the baby room, and the baby room is where my heart lies.
