About the moment

Caterpillar Day Nursery was established in August 2010 and situated in a converted three storey Victorian house in the heart of Market Harborough, Leicestershire. We are registered for 47 children with ages ranging from 6 weeks to 5 years. Plus we provide an Out of School service for children aged 4 to 11 years at Meadowdale Primary School in Market Harborough.

On visiting us, you will notice that Caterpillar Day Nursery has been renovated to a high standard and we take pride in our nursery by offering clean, bright and airy rooms where your child is free to play, explore and learn at their own pace.

At Caterpillar Day Nursery our rooms are small and friendly to ensure your child is cared for in a small group by familiar staff. We provide a home from home environment where our staff can develop a strong relationship with your child as an individual and you as their parent. Whilst at Caterpillar Day Nursery your child’s own individual personality and character is nurtured and allowed to flourish. The atmosphere within our nursery is surprisingly calm and yet all children are always very busy and having lots of fun.  We are also one of the few children's day nurseries in Market Harborough that employs 100% qualified staff.
