Carousel is a local, family-run nursery, established for over thirty years, offering high quality childcare. We are located in the grounds of Linchfield CP School, in a stand-alone building, that can be accessed independently via the walkway next to the school.
Carousel Nursery have been fortunate, to have children who come to us, not only from Market Deeping and Deeping St James, but also from the surrounding villages.
Our Friendly, dedicated, well experienced team, aim to make learning fun, and work in partnership with our parents and carers, to enable us to get to know every child and their families. This helps us to keep them informed and involved in their child's development.
We take children from two years old to school age, and offer a 'home from home' caring environment.
We offer the government funded fifteen hours & thirty hour free childcare, for all two*, three and four year olds (*subject to eligibility) along side our flexible hourly rate.
CAROUSEL NURSERY OFSTED REPORT
We have recently had our Ofsted inspection, and are very pleased to announce that we received a 'Good' rating. Here are a couple of extracts from the report:-
Children develop warm, affectionate relationships with all staff. They are confident to approach them and welcome their support and interaction in their play.
Children are enthusiastic and active learners. They are supported to make good progress as they engage in a range of stimulating learning opportunities. Staff take into account children's different learning styles and interests when planning activities. Staff observe children and regularly review their development.
Parents are supportive of the setting and participate in their children's learning through regular home-link activities, such as a book-lending system and completing a bird watch survey. Children's progress is shared with parents. They have constant access to children's photographs and observations of their learning through an online childcare management program.

We believe that children learn best though play, and this is at the core of everything we do. Carousel is committed to working with every child, in order to make their time with us interesting, and most of all fun!
Children are free to access toys and resources of their choice, and daily activities are planned to meet the children's ability, to progress learning further.
Our aim is for every child to feel included, happy and at home whilst at nursery, and be ready for school when it is time for them to move on.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US
“A home away from home for our precious children. The ladies do a fantastic job, and I have every confidence in them to look after, and care for my children as if they were there own. A truly great nursery”
“My son loves his time at nursery. He always comes home saying he wants to go back. He has been progressing really well, with his communication. He regularly bursts into song, with rhymes he has learnt at nursery. The staff do a great job with the children and I am glad I choose Carousel for him.”
“My son loves coming to nursery and it makes me feel content sending him, knowing he is surrounded by staff, who care for the children like you all do. I know he will miss you all when he goes to school in September . Being a nursery nurse myself previously, I know how important it is to find somewhere that isn't all about pushing children to succeed and giving unrealistic goals, but to have a nursery that cares for them, and lets them develop at their own pace, with your help and support, and comfort when needed, which is why I picked Carousel Nursery. Its a great home to home nursery.”
