Welcome to The Cradle Nursery

Our Story

To reach for the stars we will Explore, Discover and Grow.

Welcome to The Cradle Nursery, a dedicated and purpose-built place to provide excellence in nurturing the future of our children. We understand how difficult it is to find a suitable environment where your child’s first formative years will be spent away from you. That is why we have taken care of every detail in the setting, to make sure that we provide the ‘home away from home’ environment. Our mission is to offer our Cradle children happy, safe, and stimulating surroundings in order for them to learn and explore, have creative experiences, and stay active.


Our nursery is prominently located on Leicester Road Wigston, directly opposite the Holiday Inn Hotel and Bella Italia. We are open 51 weeks of the year from 07:30 am to 06:30 pm, Monday to Friday. We cater to children aged between 3 months to 5 years old. Moreover, we offer places for government-funded children for 2 and 3 years old. All major childcare vouchers are accepted with full time and part-time places. Our amazing chef prepares fresh vegetarian, vegan and halal meals on site.

We are very proud to say that our highly qualified and motivated staff members create a safe and learning environment for children to access all facilities available at our well equipped and spacious nursery, both in our indoor and outdoor play area. At The Cradle Nursery, we like to laugh, sing, and give lots of cuddles to our children. Our staff is well trained in providing safe and secure attachments. With all our love and care we help our children develop and grow. They get opportunities to build on physical, social, and emotional skills, communication and language, creativity through understanding the world around them while incorporating well-planned literacy and numeracy activities.

Our Nursery has an open-door policy, so come along and visit us to see how our Cradle Children experience a day of wonders where they see, search, and spread their wings before they can fly.
