Legal Framework

The nursery is registered by OFSTED (The Office for Standards in Education) under the Children Act, as a day nursery for 50 children. Thirty-nine (39) children between the ages of 0-5 years and eleven children between the ages of 3 to 11 years old for after school care. The nursery is subject to regular inspections by OFSTED.


Starting at the Nursery

At the point of admission, parents are encouraged to attend for an initial settling-in period according to the needs of the child. Induction days usually consist of 1-hour sessions on 3 consecutive mornings. We will extend this time depending on how your child settles. On the first day of induction, the focus will be introducing your child to the key person and we would suggest you stay with your child to help this process.

Due to the covid 19 pandemic the settling period times will be limited to 30 minute sessions across a 3 consecutive mornings in a week, as parents are not being permitted access into the building to assist with settling in this period.

We will discuss any additional relevant information relating to daily routines and dietary needs as well as getting some background on your child’s earlier months/years at home. All of this information will help us care for your child’s individual needs and help us to make contact in the case of an emergency.

Staff to Child Ratio

The Nursery Operates to the following ratio.
Age 0-2 One member of staff to 3 children
Age 2-3 One member of staff to 4 children
Age 3-5 One member of staff to 8 children

The nursery uses a key person system. This means that each member of staff has responsibility for an identified group of children. This helps to provide continuity of care, and is especially important for very young children. Every effort is made for very young children, in particular to spend the majority of the day in care of the same adult.


All staff is selected for their experience and aptitude working with children. Most of our staff are formally qualified and posses qualifications which include the NNEB nursery nursing certificate, BTEC nursery nursing diploma, NVQ (level 2,3 and 4), or Bachelors Degree in Teaching and Early years Professional Status qualifications.
