Harton Village Kindergarten is a 109 place day nursery that provides the very best care and education for babies and children from 6 weeks to five years of age along with after school provision. The nursery is the best place in South Tyneside for children and babies to enjoy the very best facilities including a multimedia room, soft play area, sensory room and an outstanding garden area including a carefully designed sensory garden.

The nursery is located within the heart of the community and we want all those that attend to feel welcomed and valued, with this in mind the nursery encourages parents to use the facilities available including the Soft Play, Sensory Room and on site Café.

Sensory and Soft Play

We use our Soft Play and Sensory facilities to help encourage the development of all the children at Harton Village Kindergarten, they offer opportunities that are unique to any nursery in the area. There is an adventure waiting for children in our Soft Play area, which is full of things to climb, crawl and explore through for endless entertainment. Complete with a ball pit, slides and a wide variety of objects to interact with, there is no end to the excitement that can be found.

A sensory room is a special room designed to develop a person's sense, usually through special lighting, music, and objects. At Harton Village Kindergarten, our multi-sensory room aims to provide stimulating opportunities that will enhance the child’s awareness of their environment through the senses of touch, sound, vision and smell, while helping stimulate their motor movements. The result is a specialist sensory facility that will allow the child to relax, or interact with and control all of the elements.

Both facilities are designed to be used by children aged between 0 and 5 years so the children in the nursery can benefit from their access to them. We also encourage our local community to enjoy them as well, they are available to the public through our online booking system each at £2.50 for a 30 minute session.

Asilo Cafe

On site at Harton Village Kindergarten is Asilo Cafe, which prides itself on being a cafe that children can enjoy just as much as their parents. They work with groups such as Creation Station and Rhythm Time to provide fun and unique opportunities for children to learn and have fun every week. They also offer a number of special offers for parents of children who attend the nursery.

They serve a wide variety of home cooked meals, freshly baked cakes and a choice Ringtons tea, coffee and hot chocolate. There is also a selection of speciality drinks such as our Oreo Milkshake and Unicorn Hot Chocolates, and even Afternoon Tea for children.
