The Carlton Allestree proudly announces NEW senior management team


On Saturday 10th March The Carlton kindly welcomes you to a parent and child open morning. Join us for a cake, coffee and meet the team to discuss why The Carlton is the nursery for you.

Caring & Passionate Staff

Our purpose built nursery facilities are held up by bricks, but they are brought to life by our nursery nurses. That's why The Carlton goes the extra mile to find, train and motivate the very best early childhood care and education staff available.

Play... Laugh... Learn...

We are proud to offer high adult to child ratios at The Carlton Nursery. This enables us to foster the cognitive and social development of each individual child, giving them time to explore, share and grow in a safe and nurturing environment.

Whether your child has first steps, first words or first school year on the horizon, our devoted staff prepare your child for success in their years to come.

Today was an emotional day, as we said goodbye to a parent who has been with us for the past 7 years.
🌲They kindly selected a tree to bring into nursery to plant as a memory of our pre-school children who are leaving us for school over the next couple of weeks. Our children then decorated stars to hang on the tree and made a little wish as they did so ⭐️.
