Because it can be difficult to be sure that you have found a quality child care setting we have put together our promises…

You are ALWAYS welcome at the nursery. No appointment is needed. We have nothing to hide.

We are registered with OFSTED for 34 children aged between 3 months and 8 years.

We work with the Early Years Foundation Stage for learning and development.

We are here for your children and spend ALL of our time encouraging, observing, entertaining and most of all caring for those children.

We have excellent links with all the local schools taking and collecting the children throughout the day.

Our policies and procedures are avilable for parents to read.

We have 8 members of staff who are all fully qualified to level 3.

Staff to child ratios are always met. These are
under 2’s = 1:3      2yrs+ = 1:4     3yrs + = 1:8

The members of staff are present in all areas of the nursery at all times, carefully observing the children in their care.

All staff and students are fully police checked, as good practice these are updated every three years.

We encourage children and students from local schools and colleges to come to our nursery to learn the profession. These students are made aware of our policies when they first arrive on the premises.

Students are NEVER left unsupervised and are NOT included in staff to child ratios.

Our staff turnover is very low. Most of the staff that we employed 9 years ago are still with us now and the whole team work excellently together.

We undertake a wide range of training courses to keep us upto date with changing legislation.

We are inspected by OFSTED and were last inspected in March 2009. Our report is available for you to read on their website.
