At Rothbury Kindergarten we provide quality care and early education for children ages 0-5 years in Rothbury and the local area.

We aim to provide children with freedom, happiness, guidance, discipline and kindness in a consistent, secure environment. We recognise the emotional needs of children, which include attention, affection, safeguarding, as well as a sense of belonging and personal growth. They need encouragement to learn from experience, the opportunity to explore, investigate and experiment and be given appropriate activities that encourage children to reach their full potential.

Quality Childcare

All children learn through play � the principal means of learning in early childhood. Through play, children gradually develop concepts and ideas, learn to discriminate, make judgement and use their imagination.

We have over 17 years of experience in providing quality childcare, which we use to ensure all our nurseries provide the best environment for our children's learning and development. At Rothbury Kindergarten we draw upon the knowledge gained from our 4 sister nurseries in South Tyneside, all of which are Ofsted graded Good or Outstanding, in order to provide this.

Local Links

Rothbury Kindergarten has close links with both Rothbury and Thropton First Schools and passes on any relevant information regarding your child�s learning and development, during their time with us and when they leave. We operate a drop off and collection service to Rothbury First School and a collection only service to Thropton First School. Both services are subject to numbers and availability.

Out of School and Holiday Care

At Rothbury Kindergarten we provide Before and After School care for children up to 10 years of age in a safe, caring and friendly environment. Our clubs are filled with resources, activities and games that are suitable for children of school age. Our Breakfast and After School Clubs are open every weekday during school term time with a team of qualified staff who work with the children and during the school holidays we run a Holiday Club throughout each weekday.

We offer pick ups and drop offs for both of our term time clubs for Rothbury and Thropton First Schools, and all of our Out of Schools sessions are eligible for a 15% Sibling Discount if they have a sibling that also attends Rothbury Kindergarten.
