About Us

Enchanted Nursery opened in October 2016.

We are Coventry’s First Organic Children’s Day Nursery!

The nursery directors Adele Payton and Carly Cullen have over 30 years combined experience working within early years education, having both previously worked in schools and managed nurseries within Coventry and Warwickshire.

During our previous experiences we struggled to fully implement our ideas to create innovative practice, when the nursery was not our own. After meeting during our previous roles as Manager and Deputy, we realised we had the same values and wanted to create a nursery where children and families were at the heart of our business. We have become great friends and business partners, putting our ideas together to make our dreams come reality!

We viewed a couple of properties but none of them met our expectations. We then found 138 Foleshill Road, a 3 storey self contained building, with huge amounts of space and character, we saw an exciting opportunity and found our vision. We have extensively refurbished the property throughout, to create a beautiful nursery. We have had brand new flooring fitted throughout, new low level children’s toilets fitted including a disabled adult and child toilet, nappy changing areas, a brand new kitchen and lots more! Not forgetting the decorating which was mostly done by ourselves, including a little help from family and friends!

Each room has a story behind it and has been carefully designed, to create a magical place for learning, exploration and to ensure the best possible start in life for all children attending our nursery. We have a large outdoor garden and a separate outdoor space for our younger ones, as a city centre property this can be hard to come by. The property also has a large kitchen for us to prepare nutritious organic meals. More information can be found on our Menus page.

We have a large Preschool room which will be used for our holiday club for 4- 11 year olds, running during all school holidays. We will be working on a lower ratio than required by Ofsted within our Preschool room, to ensure we provide high quality teaching and learning opportunities. We believe this will have a positive impact upon children’s learning and development progress, in preparation for school transitions and future learning.

We have a highly experienced staff team with a range of qualifications including degree level. We believe in growing our staff team and allowing progression, therefore aiming towards having a low staff turnover to keep consistency for the nursery.

At least one of the directors will always be at the nursery, as we offer an open door policy to both parents and staff. We also have Team Leaders in place to ensure the nursery runs smoothly having an inspirational leadership and management team.

Our nursery offers home from home care, with families being at the heart of our business. When joining Enchanted you become part of our family and we go above and beyond to ensure we exceed your expectations, providing the highest standard of care and education.

We have carefully selected high quality equipment and resources to provide a naturalistic approach to early education, therefore implemented a low plastics policy to follow this ethos. The majority of our resources are wooden, we believe they offer inspiration for learning.

Adele is a full time working mum and understands the difficulties that arise as a working parent, especially with those busy mornings! Therefore, we offer inclusive childcare to help make life easier for working parents. We value the importance of parent partnerships and strive to exceed your expectations in every possible way. At Enchanted the care and welfare of the children is our main priority.

We chose the name “Enchanted” for our nursery as we wanted to create a magical place where children develop new skills and prepare for school and future learning in a fun, stimulating and exciting environment. (We also had a little bit of help from Adele’s daughter Poppie too!)

At Enchanted we strive for the best and offer excellent facilities, to enable all children to reach their full potential.
