Leaving your child with a nursery for the first time can be an emotional experience for both parent and child…

...Do you remember your first day at nursery?

Were you tearful, emotional, not wanting to let go of your Mum or Dad or did you jump straight in excited at the new surroundings without a backwards glance? In truth, whether baby or toddler, we are all different and however we reacted most of us can remember this event.
That’s why at Merry Poppets® we make this transition as simple and as natural as possible for both child and parent. From that moment on we aim to make Merry Poppets a positive experience for all.

We are the proprietors of Merry Poppets. As well as being fully qualified Nursery Nurses and Mum’s ourselves we have spent many years working with children at a local lower school, which has provided invaluable experience when preparing children for the move into full time education. We are supported by a dedicated team of qualified and experienced Nursery Nurses who promote a secure, warm, friendly and caring atmosphere designed to encourage happy and confident children!

Merry Poppets has 4 settings within central Bedfordshire at Ampthill, Flitwick, Henlow and Westoning. Our individual approach to child care has allowed each setting to develop differently for the benefit of the children and their parents, each setting is uniquely different and as you would expect from Merry Poppets handled with the same high standards of care and professionalism.
