Fun In The Park

Ramsey’s award winning childcare setting

Play to Learn

We have a truly wonderful team of childcare professionals and support staff at Parklands Nursery. We only allow the best to join us and take care to ensure that anyone joining our team shares our Core Values.
That’s important because play is the foundation for our excellence and having fun is one of our Core Values. We encourage staff to be playful at Parklands and enjoy what they do. And they are great at it.
Children spend their time at Parklands having great fun whilst learning and developing. The Parklands soundtrack is filled with children’s laughter. Happy Children is what we do and having fun is how we do it.

The Heart of Ramsey

Our enviable location in the middle of Mooragh Park is unique. With floor to ceiling windows in our light filled childcare rooms the children look out over the park and the lake. It’s really beautiful.
And of course the park is literally on our doorstep so the children get immediate safe access to the park’s open spaces and play areas.
But more than that we are at the centre of the community. Parklands has been supporting children and their families in the North of the Island for over 30 years and is the established No.1 nursery in Ramsey.

Award Winning Childcare

Parklands has been awarded the Manx Step Into Quality award for the quality of our child development and educational opportunities that we provide for the children.
With a wide range of activities, both indoor and outdoor at nursery the children are able to grow and develop their skills for life and prepare for when they go to school.
We deliver a broad Curiosity Approach based curriculum and always look for ways to engage the children and make their learning fun.
We also go even further and offer access to our own Outdoor Adventure Club and swimming lessons.

Trusted Community Childcare

We’ve been at the heart of childcare in Ramsey for over 30 years and have been trusted by families to care and educate thousands of children.
Our purpose is to create Happy Children, Positive Futures and we do so by building on old fashioned values combined with modern thinking and delivery.
We are proud to play our part in the community and fabric of Ramsey and the North and have great links with the community that support us to support you.

What We Do

Happy Children, Positive Futures

Happy Children Positive Futures means just that.
Parklands will put a smile on your child’s face. We know we’ve got it right when your child comes bouncing in through the door at the start of their session and packs as much fun and enjoyment into their time at Parklands, before leaving deep in animated conversation with you about all the fantastic things they’ve done.

Your child will have their imagination set alight by the stimulating environment and activities on offer at Parklands. Every child’s unique needs will be met by our hand-picked team of Early Years Educators, all of whom just love to work with children; to inspire and enthuse them with a zest for life, for learning, for exploration and discovery.

Your child will be welcomed into a confidence building environment where each child may develop independence and positive self-worth. They will be listened to and everything they have to say will be appreciated. Your child will have the opportunity to talk about what they are doing and how they are feeling.

Through play your child will be able to develop confidence, forming friendships, social relationships and self-respect. Your child will be encouraged to use their imagination through diverse play opportunities.

And you won’t miss out either. You’ll be involved with your child’s time at nursery as much or as little as you like. Of course you’ll hear all about your child’s day but you will also get online access to our unique Family Share information platform and Parent Link learning journal with photos and observations tracking your child’s development.

But best of all you’ll know that you’ve made the right choice choosing Parklands for your child and your family – you’ll join over 3,000 happy families that Parklands and the other nurseries in the Hopes & Dreams family have helped support.
