Welcome to Hollies Day Nurseries

We are a family-run business with a passion to provide exceptional childcare within our four Nottingham nurseries.

We started Hollies 27 years ago with the opening of our first nursery in Sherwood and are proud that 3 generations of our family have been able to share the important early developmental stages of thousands of children.  

Rated as Outstanding by Ofsted, our nurseries offer safe, nurturing surroundings for children aged from 6 weeks through to 5 years, enabling them to learn, grow and progress on their individual journey in life.  Taking inspiration from childcare in Scandinavia, we focus on early child brain development through play and the impact the environment has on children.  Our nurseries provide a calm haven, with homely elements and a focus on fresh food, healthy eating and lots of outdoor play. We love to have lots of fun and our days are filled with exploring, being curious and new experiences.

Robin Hood recently visited our nurseries to act as judge for our Winter Wonderland environment competition. We made bows and arrows and showed Robin how to hammer a nail.


At Hollies, we recognise the value of having a progressive and forward-thinking business.  Over the years, we have put our heart and soul into making each child’s journey unique, enabling them to become life long learners.   We work with a dedicated team of practitioners, who understand and believe in our vision, inspiring learning for life.

We are open from 7:30am till 6:00pm Monday -  Friday. We are closed on Bank Holidays, between Christmas and New Year and for the Summer Half Term (May 27th - May 31st 2019).
