Welcome to Dorchester Chipmunks, running for over 13 years in Dorchester. We cater for children aged 0 - 12 years in our Nursery and holiday Clubs. We are a OFSTED registered Nursery for 153 children. We have 5 different units covering all the different age ranges.


Our Adult to staff ratio in the Nursery is 1 adult to every 3 children in the 0-2's rooms, 1 adult to every 4 children in the 2-3's rooms, 1 adult to every 8 children in the pre-school and holiday clubs.


All units follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and cover the areas of learning through our planning both indoors and outdoors. The children all have their own individual files which follow them through the nursery and are available for all parents/carers to see.


We hold regular parents evenings where you can come along and speak to your child's key worker and see their work and their progress. We have a open door policy so you are able to speak to management or staff at a drop of a hat. We value all comments and take them on board to help us keep up a good standard of practice as parents/carers ideas,opinions and comments are paramount to us.
