Ofsted Inspection

On May 24th we had our first OFSTED inspection and I am pleased to let you know that we achieved a GOOD grading. A copy of the report is attached.

Parent’s Evening

Parent’s Evening will be from 6.30pm – 8.30pm on Wednesday 22nd June. This is a chance for you to meet with your child’s key worker, discuss their progress and view their learning journey. We have over 85 children on roll at the Nursery and we are therefore unable to offer different days and times for these meetings to take place. Please note that slots are 10 minutes only to ensure we see all parents. There will be time sheets on room doors the week before to allow you to book a slot.

Staff News

Unfortunately our previous chef Amber is no longer working at the Nursery however we welcome Eve Matheou as our new chef! Eve has worked in the catering industry for many years and even accomplished her dream of owning her own café! Eve will be working full time 9.30-5.30 every day.
Our Room Leader in 2-3’s Shae Mahoney has left the Nursery and we are currently recruiting for this position. As soon as we have filled this position we will let you know. Shae’s key children have been re allocated to the other staff in 2-3’s.


Last week we tried a new sign in and out format for children however it was bought to our attention that the sign in and out sheets worked better on the front desk. They will now remain on the front desk so please can we remind you to sign your children in and out of the Nursery.
