Welcome to St Mary's Day Nursery, we are an Ofsted registered OUTSTANDING nursery based in Far Cotton, Northampton. Our nursery has been established since 1981 and been offering quality childcare for many years for 2- 5 year olds, both serving the local community and beyond. We are a registered charity which is run by a board of managers.
We know how important your child is and aim to deliver the highest quality of care and education to help them achieve their best, through our child centred approach to fun and active learning. We aim to work with our parents to best meet each child's individuals needs, through unique and exciting play opportunities to allow their learning and development flourish.

Here at St Mary's Day Nursery, all of our food is cooked on site and fresh in the nursery kitchen by our nursery cook, Alison Morton. Throughout the day children are offered a range of snacks and hot lunches all made fresh daily, with special dietary requirements and allergies catered for on an individual basis.
All of the staff are fully trained to work with allergens and special dietary requirements as well as being equipped with relevant food hygiene qualifications. .
Where possible we try to use home grown ingredients such as the herbs and vegetables that the children grow in the garden and we ensure all of our meals are healthy and nutritious.
The children are provided with a snack in the morning, a hot meal and pudding at lunchtime and then a tea in the afternoon. Weekly menus are displayed in our entrance hall with a list of allergens for our parents to read daily.
We also have a nursery recipe book available containing all the children's favourite dinners, available for our parents to try at home.
