We understand that choosing the right nursery for your child is an important decision.
Our nurseries provide both an educationally stimulating and nurturing environment where children are valued and cared for as individuals. We encourage children to become independent and confident through hands on experiences and work in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure that each child’s journey with us prepares them with the skills they need for life.
Our approach places great value on children's ideas and desire to research the world around them. To do this they need lots of open ended resources, tools and materials to work with. We believe children have hundreds of ways of expressing themselves, and we provide an inspiring environment to enable them to do so.
Parents are encouraged to become as involved as possible in nursery life, and there is a lot for you to be involved in…
Drop Offs and Handovers
We pride ourselves on having excellent relationships with our parents. Our handovers provide an insight into your child's day, detailing eating, sleeping, activities, developmental progress and emotional well-being. They also provide an opportunity for you to update us on events at home.
We hold three parent's evenings a year where you have an opportunity to discuss your child’s development and progress at nursery with his/her key carer and provide feedback to us on your experiences. You will also be given the Learning Journal to take home and share with the rest of the family and maybe add your own photos and comments as appropriate.
We hold two major events a year, a Summer Fun Day and a Christmas event. These are always very well supported by parents and have featured special extras such as bouncy castles, mobile farms, exotic animal workshops and Santa's Grotto for you to enjoy with children and nursery staff. We are always very grateful to our parent volunteers, and Dad's who we persuade into the Santa suit!
feedback is essential!
A large part of our self-assessment practises is built on the feedback parents give us. We have an open door policy and are always on hand to discuss any worries or concerns, as small as they may seem. We send out yearly feedback forms which provide us with your views on everything from the nursery meals, the performance of our staff, as well as your children's experiences. We use this information to assess whether we are reaching our goals and set new ones for the year ahead.
