Castle Nurseries @ Rye Hill

Colby Court, Newcastle upon Tyne NE4 6HL

Rye Hill Community Nursery provides quality care and education for up to 60 children aged between three months and five years. Ideally located close to the town centre with good public transport links, the nursery offers a homely environment where children can learn through play and exploration.

The extensive garden enhances children’s learning, with a planting area where they can learn about growing vegetables and leading healthy lifestyles. The produce grown in the nursery’s garden is used in its freshly cooked, healthy meals.

An outdoor play area is also available, which the younger children have free flow access to. It is well-equipped with age-appropriate resources to promote development in the early stages, such as crawling and walking.

All staff at the nursery hold relevant qualifications and their main focus is to care for and enable children to reach their full potential.
