A Little About us test
The Oval nursery has been open now for 5 years and has the Ofsted rating GOOD. Before opening the nursery here at Newtown, Tracey began the business as a childminder at home, looking after her grandson.
Business soon began to grow and Tracey had to employ more and more staff .
As the childminding business out grew the home, therefore we decided to move into a nursery provision and so we become The Oval Childcare Nursery here at The Newtown Recourse Centre.
Our opening sessions are Monday – Fridays 7am – 6pm and parents have the options of either needing full or half days. The Oval Nursery has a flexible approach and will try to accommodate parents needs.

I have my Level 3 diploma and 25 years experience in nursery nursing. I have worked with children with special needs on the children's day care unit at North Tees. I have worked in nurseries and also out in the community with health visitors and midwives as a home visitor. When my first grandchild was born, I decided to go into childminding in my home which I done for 3 years. But after a rise in demand for childminding, I decided to open ' The Oval Childcare nursery' which is named after where I live!
