Nursery Information

Our nursery is located opposite Sainsbury’s supermarket and Loughton Station (on the central line).

The nursery is open all year round from 7.30 am to 6.00 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding Christmas week and bank holidays). We provide childcare and education for babies and young children from three months to five years of age.

Our fees include a nursery backpack and all meals and extracurricular activities.

We understand that choosing a nursery for your child is one of the most difficult decisions that you will have to make. Consider visiting a range of nurseries in the area to find the one that is right for you and your child. If you would like to arrange a visit or a trial session, contact us by telephone or e-mail, or pop into the nursery. Our friendly and professional staff are ready to welcome you at any time.

Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and five years of age. 

The EYFS helps your child get ready for school and prepares them for their future learning and successes. All children’s early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun, secure and support their development, care and learning needs. Learn more about EYFS here.

Nutrition

We believe that a well balanced and nutritious diet should be available to each child daily. Our qualified chefs prepare homemade meals using only fresh ingredients.

Our Loughton nursery serves breakfast, lunch and tea, with additional refreshments and snacks throughout the day. Fresh drinking water is always available, as well as milk and diluted fruit juice.

We can cater to any special dietary needs, and a vegetarian option is always available. Find out more about Nutrition here.

Our people

We handpick all of our employees for their ability to provide warm and consistent care. 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!

    Staff carefully organise enabling environments for high quality play. Sometimes, they make time and space available for the children to invent their own play. Occasionaly, they join in to sensitively support and extend the children’s learning.

    Babies, toddlers and young children thrive when they are loved and well cared for. Children are powerful learners. Every child can make progress in their learning with the right help.

    We help the children to build confidence in social situations. We encourage increasing independence and a sense of responsibility when being with others. We encourage the children to use their decision-making skills, for example, when deciding what to eat.

    We have strict security procedures to ensure the safety of the children. Before being allowed into the nurseries, visitors must have a valid reason to attend, they must show photographic ID and sign the visitors’ book. Visitors are never left unsupervised in the nurseries.

    We encourage the children to select and use activities and resources with help when needed. This approach enables them to achieve a goal they have chosen or one which our team have suggested to them.

    We encourage children to develop their ideas and then decide which materials to use to express them. They learn to draw with increasing complexity and detail, such as representing a face with a circle and adding details.
