We understand that choosing a nursery for your child is one of the most challenging decisions you will have to make. Therefore, you should visit different nurseries in the area to find the one that’s right for you. If you want to arrange a visit or a trial session, don’t hesitate to contact us by telephone or e-mail or pop into the nursery. You are welcome at any time.

Our people

We handpick all of our employees for their ability to provide warm and consistent care. In addition, our teams understand the physical, emotional and intellectual needs of the children.

All our staff meet stringent requirements set by Ofsted. Before starting work, references request references from the most recent former employers. We also conduct Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service checks. These checks are updated regularly, regardless of the employees’ length of service.

The vast majority of our staff have qualifications in Child Care and Learning and Development. Many of whom are qualified to degree level. Those who aren’t are actively encouraged to pursue formal qualifications.

All our teams receive training in:

  • Safeguarding Children
  • Paediatric First Aid
  • Food Hygiene
  • Fire Safety
  • Moving and Handling

We assess all training needs on an individual basis and provide ongoing support to our teams.

Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of children is our top priority.

We also work hard to ensure your child has an enjoyable learning journey, learning, developing and have fun!

    Children are encouraged to take part in activities and use the many resources we provide. In addition, we support the children to set their own goals and achieve them.

    We encourage the children to develop their phonological awareness and a love of books. We help children understand the meaning of ‘print’ and its different purposes whilst expanding their vocabulary and understanding.

    We arrange resources to encourage the children to play with increasing confidence on their own and with others. They can do this knowing that we are there to support them.

    Children are powerful learners. Effective pedagogy is a mix of different approaches. Children learn through play, guided learning, direct teaching and observing one another.

    Children’s learning is often lead by their interests. Therefore, our curriculum planning is flexible to ensure we use their interests to encourage and motivate them to learn.

    We introduce children to a broad selection of action songs from different cultures and languages and encourage them to accompany the actions and sounds with movements or musical instruments.
