HOW WILL WE CARE FOR YOUR CHILD?

We will ensure your child receives the care, warmth and supervision they need to feel safe and secure. Along with lots of opportunities and encouragement in order for them to grow and develop. Fun and laughter being the order of the day whilst playing and exploring.

By providing a happy, safe and secure environment, each child is able to develop in a relaxed yet purposeful way, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.

When it comes to rest and/or the need for sleep, we provide cosy areas and sleep areas to recharge batteries for the rest of the day.

All our meals are freshly prepared on site each day by our dedicated cooks. The ingredients used within our menus are carefully planned so that your child will gain all the nutrients they need for a busy day at nursery.

Information about nursery life is communicated through Tapestry our online journal system, newsletters, notice boards and meetings. Child progress reports are provided termly, however, informal, daily discussions are the norm.

Every individual nursery is committed to equality of opportunity and inclusion.
