A fully flexible nursery for the working parent

We are passionate about providing a caring and
nurturing environment in our nursery, where your children will thrive
and develop new skills in a safe and engaging way.

Our nursery adopts a ‘curiosity approach’ to learning, taking inspiration from the Reggio Emilia method. We offer activities based around natural resources, and encourage as much interaction as possible within the EYFS framework.

Our childcare professionals are passionate about Early Childhood, and inspiring the children they care for to be curious, have fun and gain confidence.

Most important of all, at Third Door we only employ people who are nice! We want you to like the people looking after your child as much as we do.

What matters to us is that you share our values of respect, curiosity and kindness to one another. 

 

How it works

Within our monthly flexible packages, you are allocated hours which you are welcome to use on the days that suit you.

Simply book at least 48 hours in advance using our straightforward online booking system.

You can book your child into the nursery for as little as two hours a day, or for the full day 0730-1830. You can also upgrade and downgrade your package depending on your childcare needs.

What our parents say…

My daughter loved the nursery and I couldn’t have managed my work as a freelance journalist without the flexibility it offered. The fantastic office space upstairs also made me much more productive (and sociable!) than working at home.

Claire

Journalist

Third Door has been such a lifesaver for me. Before coming to Third Door I was primarily working from home, trying to work and look after my children at the same time and I felt like I did both poorly.

Being at Third Door has helped enormously by giving me a separate space for work, which has meant that I feel much more free to have fun with my boys when I’m not in the workhub. I have since increased my productivity such that I have been able to take on two additional clients and my work volume is well under control.

Kate

Self-employed Accountant

There are no words for our gratitude towards each of you. Thank you for loving Luke as much as you do and teaching him so much. You have all been such an integral part of our lives and we will miss you terribly. Looking forward to hearing about all your future successes.

Jason and Talia

Startup

The idea of a Nursery and coworking space all in one is absolutely brilliant and the flexible plans they offer are amazing – I can leave Tessa in the Nursery and go upstairs and work for 2 or 3 hours uninterrupted. Also, there is no commute so I know that if Tessa needs me it is a matter of going down the stairs and peering through the door! It gives me a real sense of liberation to do the work I need to do with the confidence that Tessa is in safe hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do you mean by ‘flexible nursery’?

Within our monthly flexible packages, you are allocated hours which you are welcome to use on the days that suit you. Simply book at least 48 hours in advance using our straightforward online booking system. You can book your child into the nursery for as little as two hours a day, or for the full day 0730-1830. Within our fixed packages, you can swap your days (within the week) and buy additional ad-hoc days. You can also upgrade and downgrade your package depending on your childcare needs.

Is Third Door Ofsted registered?

Yes, our Ofsted registered number is EY424407.  We can take children from 3 months up to 5 years old. Ofsted have rated our nursery a Good overall.

Do you have a minimum requirement for nursery hours?

Yes, but it is very low compared to other nurseries.

We require a minimum commitment of 30 hours per month (roughly equivalent to one day a week), which can be used flexibly across the month.

We have learned that children settle in the nursery a lot more easily if they come in for at least 2 sessions per week (whatever the length), especially in the case of under 2s. Having a minimum requirement also enables our staff to build stronger relationships with your child, see their development, and the child will feel more comfortable and confident, making friends more easily.

What makes Third Door different to other nurseries?

There are several ways we believe Third Door is different to other nurseries:

  • Flexibility – you do not have to commit to the same days every week, and can use your hours however you wish! Within our monthly membership packages, you are allocated hours which you are welcome to use on the days that suit you. Simply book at least 48 hours in advance using our straightforward online booking system.
  • Proximity – parents can work and have meetings on-site, as well as spend time with their child if they wish. Having our coworking space on the same site as our nursery also makes it easy for working mothers to continue breastfeeding their babies.
  • Community – working in the same space as other like-minded parents provides opportunities to build relationships and create community.
Are meals provided for my child?

Yes. We provide breakfast, lunch and tea which your child will receive depending on the times they are booked into the nursery. The childrens’ lunch and tea is provided by Zebedee’s Lunch Box, with menus designed by a pediatric dietician to ensure they meet the specific dietary needs of nursery age children. Their meals can cater for most allergies and food intolerances, as well as culturally-specific diets.

Do you accept childcare vouchers?

Yes.

Can I work off-site while my child is in the nursery?

Yes, you are free to use our coworking space or not – whatever works best for you. We are a registered UK daycare nursery, so you can choose to be offsite for the full day if you need to.

Can I use the nursery on an ad-hoc basis?

Yes, but we only take a maximum of two ad-hoc children per day (if aged over 2). Our members take priority over any ad-hoc bookings.
