Jess, Manager Yellow Dot Nursery North Baddesley

My name is Becky McFarlane and I am the Manager of our outstanding Yellow Dot Nursery in North Baddesley.

I joined Yellow Dot in July 2016 as I feel Yellow Dot's values and family atmosphere is an honour to be part of. I have over 10 years' experience in early years managerial roles as well as over 14 years childcare experience. I am a qualified Early Years Teacher and hold a BA in Early Years practice. I am passionate in caring for children and helping them reach their full potential across all areas and inspiring potential. The experience I have gained over the years, helps me to lead, support and encourage the practitioners in their roles within our Nursery Setting here at North Baddesley.

Yellow Dot Nursery is a welcoming purpose built, single storey building situated in the residential area of North Baddesley. The Nursery is extremely well designed, with small low levelled windows to allow the children to look out on the environment. All children benefit from accessing the garden where they overlook the landscape behind the Nursery. This view of farmland allows the children to see horses, rabbits and deer running freely. The design of the Nursery facilitates an open family environment where the children have regular opportunities to interact with siblings and peers across the age groups. We have a dedicated team led by Becky the nursery Manager. Our team is committed to professional development in order to improve outcomes for all children.

Our activities are founded on the Early Years Foundation Stage which focuses on:

We believe children and adults learn from each other and enrich each others lives. The Nursery is divided into four areas:

Opening times

Monday to Friday, 8:00am - 6:00pm

Earlybird 7:45am by arrangement
(Sessions 8:00am -1:00pm / 1:00pm - 6:00pm)

Children may attend on either a full time or part time basis.
The Nursery is open 51 weeks a year.


We accept Childcare Vouchers and Early Years Education Funding
