Our Nursery

Our Luton / Harpenden Nursery has wonderful outdoor play facilities and has been extensively equipped both inside and out, creating a fabulous learning environment for our children to enjoy.

Prospect House Day Nursery is conveniently located on Prospect Way, close to Capability Green Business Park, next to London Luton Airport. As well as appealing to Luton based parents, our extensive facilities, outstanding quality, value for money and close proximity to Harpenden, make it an extremely attractive alternative to any other nursery in Harpenden. We are a 10 minute drive from the centre of Harpenden, and have our own large car park for an easy and relaxed drop off and collection.  

Our Luton / Harpenden nursery has been ‘purpose built’ and designed specifically for the provision of outstanding childcare. It was refurbished and re-equipped to a very high standard in the Summer of 2014, introducing lots of new toys and equipment to help encourage all children in their learning and development, and is now a beautiful space for our children to enjoy.

Our nursery offers wonderful large rooms that are bright and airy, giving our children lots of space so that they can explore, play and learn. The nursery is warm and welcoming with a homely feel which we love. We’ve developed separate rooms for our babies (3 months to 12 months), our toddlers (12 months to 24 months), our 2 -3 year olds, and our pre-school children (3 - 5 years), enabling us to resource each room appropriately for the age group, and where they are cared for and encouraged to explore and investigate.

If you visit our nursery, and compare it with others in Luton, or any nursery in Harpenden, you’ll see that in addition to being unusually well resourced, it benefits from its own large purpose-built ‘soft pore’ outdoor play area - for exciting outdoor play and exploration. We have separate outdoor play areas and equipment for our younger and older children, and we have a climbing frame, a roadway marked out for bikes and trikes, a playhouse, and digging and planting areas which we use to teach the children about growing and about food. We also have ‘sand play’ areas and a ‘mud kitchen’ in which children can dig, build and experiment with sand, mud and water as they discover what can be done with these different materials. And canopies allowing our children to go outside and explore and play in all weathers.

Whilst you wouldn’t expect to find a day nursery in Luton - or a day nursery in Harpenden -with such extensive outdoor facilities – and we appreciate that we’re lucky to have them – we have also worked hard to create the best indoor facilities too. Our baby and toddler rooms are equipped with resources such as sensory equipment, treasure baskets, and our toddler ‘play gym’ - carefully selected and designed to promote your child’s development. And our rooms for older children are packed with resources designed to offer children as much choice as possible and capitalise on their individual areas of interest - and IT facilities that allow children to begin their learning in his area.
We are committed to remaining the best day nursery in Luton, and the best solution for parents looking for a day nursery in Harpenden, and to providing outstanding childcare for children aged 3 months to 5 years of age, and our nursery facilities and environment form an important part of that.

We believe excellent childcare and education depends on:

  • Providing rich enabling environments, and stimulating activities
  • Having knowledgeable enthusiastic staff to support children’s learning and development
  • Working in partnership with the parents and families of the children in our care
  • Training, valuing and rewarding our staff for the crucial role they play in supporting children’s learning and development
  • Children and adults having fun!


We hope you do too – and that you’ll pop in to see us at Prospect House – the best solution for parents looking for a day nursery in Luton or a day nursery in Harpenden.
