Information about nursery places with effect from 23rd March 2020
Please read the latest information about Covid-19 from Public Health England
This is our list of events for 2020. Please take a look and see what the children will be doing this year.
Meal times are a very important part of the day and the nursery provides breakfast between 7.30am - 8.00am, a snack at 9.00am, lunch starting at 11.30am and tea at 3.15pm.
All meals are prepared freshly each day by the chef who is based in the nursery.
Children aged 10 months are introduced to morning snacks, afternoon teas and from 12 months they can have the nursery lunch. Until this time parents are required to provide all food. We do not offer this before because there are so many allergies that are not found until children are introduced to foods and it is safer to do this at home. We will also provide 1/3 pint of cows milk to all children daily in the nursery when they are over 12 months of age.
The children learn to develop their social skills by helping to lay the table and discussing their day over a well balanced meal.
The staff are encouraged to eat with the children to promote interaction, improve social skills and to encourage good table manners.

I have noticed that A is more confident with other children when in parks for example. He will happily go and play with children that look his age, and even others that look and are probably older! He enjoys doing artwork at home and I believe that is as a result of the teachings at nursery.
I could leave A at nursery confident that he was safe and well looked after and that he was enjoying himself. This was obvious when it was home time and he was reluctant to come home immediately, always wanting to hang around and continue playing a little bit longer.
All of the staff have been accommodating and friendly to myself, and very good with A.
I would recommend the nursery because it's warm, friendly and has approachable staff. In addition, I like the activities that A has participated in and the projects that he did.
