Nursery Life


Our overall aim is to recruit professional, qualified and experienced staff that can provide a high standard of care for your child and bring different areas of expertise to the nursery team.

We follow a carefully structured recruitment and selection process and all new staff are subject to criminal record, reference and qualification checks.

Our staff will be given opportunities and encouraged to continually update their skills, knowledge and experience.

The nursery will comply with the statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and will ensure that the correct ratio of staff to children are maintained.

Each child and their parent will be allocated a key person, this person will be your main point of contact and their aim is to help your child settle confidently and happily into our nursery routine and take full advantage of the numerous learning opportunities available.

Your key person will keep you informed, giving you feedback on your child's day and their achievements, they will also keep confidential records of your child's progress, these records are always available to you and we would welcome any comments and suggestions.

Parental Involvement

We recognise that parents are the first educators of their children and we will work in partnership with you for the benefit of your child.

We operate an open door policy and welcome parents into the nursery at anytime, we value your opinions and ideas.

If you have a special talent or skill that you think the children might enjoy or would just like to get more involved with the nursery we would love to hear from you.

Your allocated key person will spend time with you establishing a care plan finding out what your child's interests are, their likes and dislikes and any special care requirements they may have.

You will receive a regular newsletter and the notice boards throughout the nursery will keep you informed of forthcoming events.
