1st Friends Day Nursery And Créche

Day Nursery

Provider details

Service Description:
"Our nursery was started back in 2002 by two mums who couldn't find appropriate childcare for their children and wanted ""something more"" than was currently offered by other settings. To this end we opened the doors with 2 children and since then the nursery has grown and the children have flourished to where we are now with 90 children currently on role.
The nursery operates from an old school building and has five rooms for children's use. The children are separated into age appropriate rooms and have equipment and resources available to them. Our ethos is that children learn through play and hands on activities as if you do something yourself you are more likely to remember how to do it again than if someone does it for you.
The children's well being and involvement is our top priority along with their safety. We have also installed a fingerprint entry system to ensure a safer place for your children to be. This only allows access to parents and carers registered with us, so you can pop in to see your child at play at any time that your child is with us.
We want children to be happy and feel safe and secure, we provide you with a contact book to ensure a good communication link exists between nursery and home. We really hope you like our nursery, although if you have any suggestions we would welcome them with your feedback as we are continuously striving to improve the outcomes for our children.
We recently received ""Good"" in our last Ofsted inspection which we are really happy about and have celebrated. This nursery enjoys the services of a cook who provides a hot two course meal, the menus are available to view in each room and are very healthy for the children.
