Peekaboo Day Care Darwen


We offer day care in Darwen for children from the age 0 up to the age of 4 years old and we focus on learning, as well as your child’s development and safety.

Our parents and children tell us how much they love our centre and the time they spend with us.  The success of Darwen led us to open another centre for childcare, Blackburn, which continues the same principles that made us such a success here at Darwen.

Our childcare centre is based on one large floor, with three separate rooms.  Our learning environment encourages exploration.  The rooms are dedicated to specific age groups, offering different furniture and a range of activities.

There is also an outdoor area.  Your child could join in with gardening or sport or play on some of our outdoor equipment. Visit Darwen and you will see your child’s work decorate our walls or attached to the line that spans the garden.  You might see children playing at the tires, digging or helping to weed the flower beds.

What makes us special?

Whilst at Darwen, your child will be assigned his or her own keyworker.  This is so your child will be monitored by the same individual each day he or she spends with us.  Progress and learning will be tracked and your child mentored.  We will liaise closely with you to make sure your child is happy and safe.  Your child’s keyworker will be your point of call for any query.

Day care, Darwen style, is all about the individual child, with the understanding that what interests and what stimulates each child will be different.  We plan individual learning experiences, using the Early Years Foundation Stage to guide our planning.  You can access your child’s online learning journal at any time.  You can also add details to the journal, offering insights from home for your keyworker to read.


We invite parents’ interaction at every point.  We offer healthy menus, prepared on the premises.  If you have any hints or tips about what would help your child eat healthily, we welcome your comments at Peekaboo Day Care Darwen.

Darwen day care is about the strong partnership with you.  We offer monthly stay and play sessions and you will be invited to regular parents’ evenings and events.  We have an open-door policy, encouraging the ideas, comments and concerns of our parents.  We believe that this partnership is what makes our centre so strong and our reputation so highly regarded.


My son has special dietary requirements and the nursery has prepared him his own menu. He loves coming to play at nursery he tells me each day what he has been doing.
