At the English Garden Nursery we fully appreciate how difficult it can be to leave your baby or toddler in the care of others. We will ensure that you have all the information you need to make your decision. We aim to be a bridge between the home and nursery, providing the highest standard of childcare for babies and toddlers from twenty weeks old up until they are ready to start kindergarten or pre-school.
We provide a friendly, clean, comfortable and safe environment, which both babies and toddlers will find stimulating and challenging. Enjoyment and fun are linked with discovery and learning. Our staff is sensitive and responsive to the individual needs of each child in their care. The adult ratio for babies is 1:3 whilst for toddlers it is 1:4.
For babies our professional carers are on hand to give lots of cuddles and conversation. Baby resources include plenty of texture play toys, access to photos of family as well as stimulation from mirrors and play books. There are individual cots for sleeping and comfy places to sit or lie. There are an abundance of specially designed areas where babies can explore, roll around and get to grips with becoming mobile.
For toddlers our professional carers provide an array of activities to help them learn more about themselves and the world around them. There are many opportunities for exploration, balanced by a routine with regular quiet times. Activities are mainly creative, with plenty of indoor and outdoor physical play, and opportunities for role play and imaginative games.
