About Us

Children’s Ark Day Nursery was established in 2000 to offer children from the Cambridge area a safe, friendly and fun place to learn and socialise with the support of the very best nursery staff.

Papworth Hall, which was sympathetically renovated as a purpose designed children’s day nursery, Children’s Ark Day Nursery cares for children aged from 6 weeks to pre-school age.  We are currently registered to care for up to 39 children, allowing us to maintain the tight-knit, warm, friendly and family atmosphere to the nursery.

A family owned and operated business we pride ourselves on giving the best care and attention possible to the children that attend, always pursuing our philosophy to respect, celebrate and nurture each child ensuring they have the opportunity to reach their own potential.


Most importantly, we make sure the children are happy and stimulated by the activities, facilities and learning that our team provide.

We fill each day with a variety of activities, ranging from nature walks around the beautiful locality to fun lessons in cooking and Tiny Talk sign language for babies.

Our highly trained team of staff with level 2 childcare and education as a minimum requirement are lead by level 4 and level 6 qualified supervisors with a variety of specialities such as first aid and child protection. Most of our trained staff at the moment are qualified as level 3 in childcare. Everyone who works here has passed a DBS check and we are also members of the National Day Nurseries Association and registered with OFSTED (click here to read our most recent OFSTED report).

Relationships with parents are really important to us and we work hard to provide services that parents can rely on and feel confident about; an extension of and important part of the close local community in Papworth Everard.

Every year we hold an open week where parents can attend and see just what goes on in an average day and can have hands on experiences that the children enjoy.


As well as special events like an annual charity fun day to bring everyone together in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Parents tell us they like the Children’s Ark Day Nursery because of its warm and friendly feel, making them feel confident their child gets the best possible level of attention and care while they are with us from the nutritious food to the range of things to do. Based just outside Cambridge between the towns and villages of Huntingdon, St Ives, St Neots, Sandy and Biggleswade we are regarded as one of the best nurseries in the area with fully qualified and experienced staff that absolutely love working with children.
