We are so confident that your child will love it at your chosen Dinotots Nursery that we offer all new parents our 14 day money back guarantee.
So, if your child does not settle, or anything else regarding the nursery doesn’t make you 100% happy within the first 14 calendar days of your child attending the nursery, then you can request, in writing, to cancel your contract, without having to pay the childcare industry’s standard 4-week notice period AND you will get a refund of any remaining days on that month’s invoice that you’ve paid for but haven’t used. We can’t say fairer than that!

An oasis of calm for your child amongst the busy hustle and bustle of Town Centre life.

For mums and dads living in and around the busy Blyth town centre, Dinotots Daycare is a relaxing, safe nursery environment for their child to come to every day.

Step through the mighty doors of the old Barclay's Bank building and the busy energy of the town outside falls away. Dinotots Daycare pride ourselves on being a calm, gentle, caring, home-from-home environment for your child – giving them the chance to develop and flourish in a rapidly changing modern world....

Our nursery has been repurposed from the corporate feel of the old Barclay's Bank to be a comfortable, stimulating environment for developing minds.

Using age-appropriate equipment and structure play, our qualified, talented nursery staff help your child develop, grow independence and confidence, and when the time comes, we’ll ensure they are ready for their next big adventure: school.

Our Nursery Rooms

Each Room with our nurseries is lovingly created to give the best experience, the best resources and the best excitement to your child, 
By using the Curiosity Approach within our nurseries we are truly able to offer a natural home-from-home experience.
This approach, and accreditation, builds on well known and established early years theorists, such as Reggio, Steiner, Te Whāriki and Montessori, in providing children with an environment, experiences, activities and resources which foster their in-built need to explore, try things out and engage in a high level of sustained shared thinking. We enhance the environments and resources that we already have in the nursery. We are introducing resources that are “real” and authentic, rather than plastic, to inspire awe and wonder and to enable children to handle items that are made of natural materials to gain skills and a level of understanding to support their learning and development at a deeper level.

Open & Transparent

Dinotots Daycare has many outstanding and unique qualities that you haven’t seen elsewhere – for this reason you’ll want to see and experience the Dinotots way for yourself.

As each situation is different, and everyone doesn’t fit in the same box we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit. Once your requirements are identified we clearly outline the costs to you, there’s no small print, everything aspect is checked and double-checked so that you’re in no doubt of the ongoing costs from day one.

Help may be available for your childcare costs

We know that, no matter how great or how cost-efficient we try to make the nursery, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option.

There may, however, be help out there to assist you. There are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

Here are a few options:

Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.


Putting the 'Care' Back into Daycare

“Dinotots Daycare is situated in the heart of Blyth’s town centre, commanding an outstanding presence in an 1889 three story building which was originally built for the Bank (Read it’s amazing History Here)

We have transformed this beautiful historic space in to a homely environment for the children to explore whilst keeping as many of the original features to create character for all the children to enjoy. Taking advantage of the large space each age group has been given their own dedicated floor where they can develop, learn and grow throughout their time here. As we’re in the perfect location, we also greatly immerse ourselves into the local community having visits to shops, care homes, the local library, harbour and local parks to support children’s knowledge of the world they live in and their local community. 

Come join us and let the world hear your roar!.”
