A Warm Welcome
Our nursery is small and cosy with a warm family orientated atmosphere. We have three individual rooms to cater for all of the children’s needs and to help them to flourish and develop in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. We also have three lovely outdoor areas, one for each age group, to build confidence and as a place to be creative.
We have a dedicated and passionate staff team whose priority is to ensure a safe and secure environment. We build good relationships with both our children and parents and to support the children to achieve, in readiness for ‘big school’ ahead.
We would be proud to show you our Nursery, to meet our wonderful team and to give you the opportunity to experience our happy and fun-filled environment.
We look forward to welcoming you and your little ones soon.
Sophie Hedges, Nursery Manager
We recognise the importance of ensuring a child feels happy, secure and welcome at our Nursery from the very start so offer a cosy environment and a smooth settling in process. When your child starts, we initially offer two settling in sessions, one with parents and one without in order to fully prepare you and your child for the nursery environment. Every child is allocated a key person who is instrumental in this process. We feel this is an important part in helping our families to feel relaxed and ready for their time at Duchess Nursery.
We work closely with each child and their family to give the child the reassurance to feel safe and cared for, ensuring they are not only happy, secure and making progress but also to act as the first communication point for parents. Your child’s key person builds a genuine bond with your family, developing a special relationship that cultivates the best interests of your child.
