The Nursery:

Our client's nursery is a family owned nursery owned by brother & sister. Because they are family owned, it enables us to not just offer the highest level of early years care and education, but also provide invaluable support to our staff, parents and carers.

As the nursery owners have young children themselves, it allows us to use ‘real-world’ experience to influence what we do on a day-to-day basis. It also means that providing love, care and building close bonds with our children is central to our ethos, as we know how important that is for developing a sense of security, confidence, and happiness.

Nature and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do. It is important to us that our children spend lots of time outdoors in the fresh air, playing, having adventures, and where it is very much an extension of the classroom.
