Welcome To Dreams Daycare!

Currently situated in the Insch Business Park. We enjoy a rural setting with ample parking and are within walking distance of all local amenities and transport links.
The nursery can accommodate eight 0 – 2 year olds, sixteen 2 – 5 year olds and thirty 5 – 16 year olds. Our family orientated childcare service ensures we meet the villages demand for good quality care.
We at “Dreams Daycare” understand how difficult it is to juggle work, study and children. This is why our dedicated, fully qualified team (with over 33 years accumulative experience in this setting) will make you feel confident and at ease that your children will receive the best care possible.
“Dreams” has a good relationship with the local community, providing transport to Insch school, Insch school nursery and many other local classes. We make good use of the local facilities and believe in supporting our local businesses.
At “Dreams” we value the friendly, family environment we have created over the years and continue to provide continuity of care from birth to pre-school then school. Each individual child’s needs are taken into account and we thrive to provide the best possible care at all times.

Every child has a right to be treated individually and given the correct level of support needed for their development. To ensure the needs of each child is met, the following procedures will be met:
1. Children and parents/carers are encouraged to come to Dreams, prior to starting nursery to familiarise themselves with the premises, meet the staff that are caring for their child/children and to experience the children’s routine. This session will be free of charge.
2. Enrolment forms and information booklet will be given to parents/carers on the day of their visit. Enrolment forms provide information for Dreams staff (only) about the child and their family, any allergies, cultural requests etc.
3. It’s up to the parent’s whether they stay for the free session with their child or not. Parents/carers are encouraged to join in activities.
4. On the first session child will meet the staff working in their room and one member of staff will be appointed to show the child Dreams routine, help them to join in activities and participate with other children.
5. Regular feedback will be given to parents/carers about how their child is coping at Dreams, what they have achieved, eaten etc on a “day to day” basis. Babies (0-2 years) are given a baby diary. In this diary, nappy changes, bottle feeds, food and any other relevant information will be recorded so that parents can take the diary home at the end of every night.
