Our Ethos

Our nurseries are small caring environments where the children can grow and flourish under the care of our qualified professional team of nursery practitioners.

We follow the philosophy of Maria Montessori, concentrating on developing in children a lifelong love of learning. Montessori teaching encourages children to become confident and independent learners in harmony with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Montessori is a tested and powerful approach to education. It is suitable for children of any age group, at nursery level, it puts them on the path to becoming confident and self-motivated at the earliest stage possible.

Every child matters to us, and children are supported by qualified, experienced and caring practitioners. In our baby room, we provide lots of cuddles, reassurance and individual attention. Outside playtime is very important to our babies, and we have all-weather surfaces for their play.

The food served at our day nurseries is nutritious. The menus are analysed carefully to ensure your child receives a well-balanced diet to promote growth and development.

We have become a “Rights Respecting Nursery” and are working towards our award to become more inclusive, embracing UNICEF Rights of the Child. We promote fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. We treat each child as an individual, following their learning styles, interests, strengths, needs making our environments stimulating and welcoming to all.

We strive to form strong parent partnerships by sharing milestones of their children’s time with us, through Tapestry or face to face. We find that many parents return to us time after time with their children. We have an open-door policy where parent’s views are welcome through our comments boxes, questionnaire, face to face, by phone or email. Parents are welcome to read our nursery policies, detailing our procedures concerning first aid, safeguarding, the key person, and managing feelings and behaviour.
