A place to play, learn, discover and grow.


Welcome to Dell Cottage Day Nursery, on the outskirts of Dorset. A family run nursery since 2006. Our vision, is for your child to feel safe and happy in an environment where they can express individual characteristics and develop self discipline and independence. We recognise that a child's journey through their early years, has the opportunity to shape their future. We strive to ensure that throughout their learning journey, children are given the richest of experiences in order to create happy memories that will last a lifetime. 

Awarded 'Outstanding' in 2018 & 2024.

"Children thrive in this warm, welcoming nursery. They are happy, motivated and socially confident. Staff know the children extremely well and skilfully plan curriculum- based activities tailored to all children's individual needs, including children with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Children with gaps in their learning make rapid progress."

OFSTED Inspector 2024

"The children have so many wonderful opportunities and learning is so child centred. The staff at Dell Cottage go above and beyond to help the children develop a deep love of learning and confidence to try new things."
