The Nursery Rooms


The Butterfly House Day Nursery is a cosy nursery with a warm homely feel. We are located in the lovely village of Great Paxton just outside St Neots. We have a capacity of 26 children per day, ranging from 0 years 2 months up to 5 years old.

Baby Room (2 months - 24 months)

Our beautiful baby room is the perfect place for babies soft and inviting, fun and exciting, this is a room where our babies feel happy and loved.  We have a seperate sleep room so that our babies can snuggle down for a good nap without any distractions or disturbances.  

This room is for babies from 2 to 24 months only, as we believe it is important to have seperate spaces for the younger, more vulnerable babies from their older, more mobile and adventurous friends.


Caterpillar Room

The large main room, bright and inviting helping children to develop their skills and personalities.

Encouraging more independent play as they want to explore everthing they see and hear.

They are encouraged through play and activities to develop thier senses and explore their world in a fun and stimulating environment.

With progression in their developmentevery day they go through huge changes during the year before their Pre-school year, potty training, speech development, social skills - all these have to be carefully encouraged and developed.

Our staff are skilled at recognising these differences and their skills are important in helping the children with these transitional changes through providing a stimulating and fun environment to explore and learn.


The Butterfly Room (3-5 years)

The Butterfly room is our Pre-School room with dedicated areas for helping the children to develop their skills and personalities.  We recognise the big differences in the two year age range and so all activities are tailored to meet each child's individual level of development.

Our highly qualified staff who have a sound knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage and total commitment to the children, ensuring they are extremely well prepared for the next stage of their lives as we prepare them for school.
