Welcome to Snuggles
Inspiring, nurturing childcare in Bangor, Northern Ireland

What makes Snuggles special

We’d love you to visit us and see Snuggles for yourself – the mix of staff, children, activities and learning is something we put all our efforts into. We work hard to create a fun, safe and loving environment for your children.

Brilliant Team
All our staff are trained for the age groups they look after.
We’re here to help your child learn and develop, and we take that responsibility very seriously indeed.
Keeping you informed
We update our Nursery Pal app throughout the day, so you can see at a glance what your little one has been up to – how long they’ve slept for, what they’ve had to eat, and what games and activities they’ve been taking part in.

We follow the Early Years Foundation stage for 0-5 year olds. It’s a statutory framework that makes sure your little one will have the skills and knowledge they need to start school.

Open all year round

We’re open every weekday throughout the year, with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day this year. In 2019 we will be closed on New Year’s Day, Easter Monday and Tuesday, May Day, 12th and 13th July, Christmas Day and Boxing Day – so you don’t have to worry about childcare during ‘school holidays’.

Our Rooms at Snuggles Day Nursery

At Snuggles, each age group has its own room and staff.
We share our facilities and outdoor space between the groups, but your child will also have their own ‘home’ within Snuggles.

Managing Change – A Smooth Transition to Snuggles

We know how anxious parents (and some children) can be with changes like joining a Nursery or Preschool. We work with parents to ensure a smooth transition for your child at each stage of the change.

A Smooth Transition
We’ll work with you to introduce your child to our environment at a pace that suits you both.
We’ll start with sessions that you can join us for, before increasing the time your little one is with us.

Your Key Worker
Your child will be assigned to a key worker, who will develop a special bond. Your key worker will spend time with your child, really getting to know them, and will provide you with regular updates on you little one’s progress.
