About the employer
We are a 15 place private day nursery set in two thirds of an acre of private land situated in the garden of 57 Fox House Lane. Our aim for the nursery is to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for the children. We try to nurture, care and challenge each child individually and give the best personal care we can.
You enter the nursery through the intercom system at the side entrance. This is monitored with a CCTV link to the nursery. We have a finger print entry system which gives parents easier access to the building. The nursery is situated at the back of the garden. The children have use of a large outdoor space, with a fenced in area with a gate and astro-turf for the babies. We have recently spent a lot of time working on our outdoor area. We have created a music wall, a built in sand pit, a mud kitchen, a water feature and a boat. We strive to spend 80% of our day outdoors. We have invested in all-weather suits so that weather is not a restriction for outdoor play. As we have a large outdoor space which is divided, it enables all of our children to play out at the same time throughout the day. We have a variety of outdoor toys available and staff set up the area daily based on weather and children’s interests and learning.
