One YMCA Charters Day Nursery

Opened in 1998, our 94-place nursery is based within beautiful Leavesden Country Park. Open-ended play and natural resources are used to build on babies and young children’s curiosity.

About Us

Our highly qualified team of Early Years Professionals provide your child with the very best nursery experience with a focus on the individual child and their very unique needs. The care and commitment of our team was highly praised in our Ofsted report, and we were delighted to be graded Good at our last inspection. We have places for 94 children aged between three months and five years.

You may hear us referred to as YMCA Charters Nursery, Leavesden Country Park Nursery or Woodlands Nursery as well as our official name which is Charters Day Nursery in Abbots Langley.

Why choose a One YMCA Nursery?

  • We promote a home from home ethos which supports your child to feel safe and secure in our settings
  • We strive for and maintain the highest standards of nursery provision through a continual process of quality assessment, staff training and user feedback in line which Ofsted and Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory requirements.
  • We believe that families are a child’s first educator and work in partnership with parents.


Our facilities are carefully designed to meet a diverse range of needs. We understand the vital foundation our early year’s facilities play in child development and work hard to create an environment that is stimulating, caring and fun. All of our nursery menus are nutritionally balanced, paying special attention to reducing salt and sugar.

Our six rooms cater for all of our age groups, and we have two large garden areas that allow for plenty of outdoor activity. Our setting, within Leavesden Country park, means we have ample park grounds at our disposal, as well as practical features like plenty of free parking.
