Welcome

Pathfinders is an Ofsted Outstanding family run nursery with community at its heart. We offer a safe and enriching environment to develop individual personality. Our outstanding childcare is open to all children aged between 6-months and 5 years old and is provided from 0745- 1745 every week day.

Early Education Funding (EEF) is available for eligible parents of 2, 3 & 4 year old children.

We are based in a purpose-built site at Crescent School in the heart of Bilton and offer a safe, loving and caring environment where the development of children’s social, emotional and educational needs are at the centre of everything that we do. To achieve this aim, we work closely with parents to offer an experience that is rich in new and exciting opportunities where children develop at their own pace both as individuals and as part of a community. The owners of Pathfinders have 14 years’ experience of running high quality nurseries in the Rugby area. We have operated the nursery at this site since September 2015. The nursery was rebranded in March 2018 as we wanted to develop an independent identity for the nursery. The name Pathfinders Nursery reflects our ethos and core values which are to seek multiple ways of learning to suit individual children’s learning needs. In our last Ofsted inspection at the nursery in July 2019, we were assessed as Outstanding. Amongst the comments made in the report are:

  • The exceptional leaders and managers of the nursery create a well-organised, efficient and successful learning environment.
  • The sounds of children's chatter, laughter and singing fills the air of this vibrant nursery. 
  • The quality of interactions between staff and children is exceptional. 
  • The quality of teaching is consistently high. Staff fully understand the learning styles, preferences and abilities of each child.
  • Staff form excellent partnerships with parents. 
  • Children's behaviour is exemplary. 
  • Children's health is promoted incredibly well.

What Our Customers Say

"Very caring, provide lots of fun, engaging activities for children and it’s a lovely setting. Excellent parent partnership."
- -
"A huge and heartfelt thank you to you all for all the love and support, care and teaching you have given Z over the past few years. He has thoroughly enjoyed his time with you and will miss you all very much."
- -
"E has learnt lots of things and I am pleased that she is learning good manners and that good interaction with others is being reinforced."
- -
"E is constantly learning and often surprises us with new words or songs he has learnt at the nursery. He's also coming on with his independence. He will play on his own for a good amount of time or he'll persist in solving a 'problem' on his own before he asks for help. He's a very confident boy and I think the nursery has a lot to do with it."
