Our Nursery

A Warm Welcome

Our nursery has a warm family orientated atmosphere, with a homely feel and 3 individual rooms to cater for all of the children’s needs, to help them to flourish and to develop in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage. We have two lovely garden areas for playing and exploring as well as digging and growing, building our childrens' physical confidence and environmental knowledge and allowing for outdoor creativity.

We have a dedicated and passionate staff team whose priority is to ensure a safe and secure environment, to build good relationships with both our children and parents and to support the children to achieve, ready for ‘big school’ ahead.

We would be proud to show you the Nursery, meet our wonderful team and see our happy children in person.

Best wishes

Gemma Brown, Nursery Manager

Settling In

We recognise the importance of ensuring a child feels happy, secure and welcome at our Duchess Nursery from the very start so offer a cosy environment and a smooth settling in process. When your child starts nursery, we initially offer three settling sessions in order to fully prepare you and your child for the nursery environment.  Each child is allocated a key person who is instrumental in this process. We feel this is an important part of 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 happy, secure and making progress but also to act as the first communication point for parents. They build a genuine bond with the family, developing a special relationship that always fosters the best interests of their child.
