Welcome to Hardingstone Day Nursery

Hardingstone Day Nursery is an independent family run setting founded in 1990, and set in the rural village of Hardingstone near Northampton.

Our highly motivated staff team led by Michelle Shelswell (EYPS/BA Hons Early Childhood Studies), and Dale Ward (NVQ Level 3), have gained an excellent reputation with local families.

We care for babies from 6 months old to 5 years and offer a variety of sessions between 7.30am – 6.00 pm for 51 weeks of the year.

We firmly believe that all children deserve the very best experiences and opportunities in their early years and our dedicated staff team strive to offer this to all children and their families.

We would very much like to meet you and your child, to show you around our lovely nursery.  Please do contact us to arrange a visit.

Best wishes

Michelle and Dale
