Knowledge and Passion

Quality care for your child requires a quality team and we pride ourselves on the knowledge and passion of our staff. All our nurseries have qualified teams include early years teachers and practitioners who understand how to fully meet the needs of children.

Purposeful Play

Each of our nurseries provide your child with the resources for all of their learning and development needs. Our team thoughtfully plan play experiences, providing stimulating activities to support your child’s development.

Parent Partnerships

To give your child a home from home environment our team work with you to give your child consistency, making sure that their time with us meets your family’s needs.

Your child’s key worker will make time at the start and end of each day to share their observations with you and you will also receive information either in writing or through photographs.

Outdoor Exploration

Enjoying the natural environment, seeking fresh air and physical activity is encouraged through outdoor exploration. Outdoors there is more room for children to learn, be creative, be healthy, grow in independence, explore and challenge themselves.

Every Small Wonders nursery benefits from having large outdoor spaces.

Distinctive Experiences

Not only is everyone of our centres different but so are all our rooms. From the baby room through to pre-school each one has it’s own distinctive look & feel to reflect the age and development of children.

Fresh & Nutritious

Each day our chefs prepare home cooked, nutritional food filled with fresh fruit, vegetables and all the goodness that is needed for physical and mental development. We encourage the children to enjoy different foods across all the food groups and our menus change regularly to reflect seasonal produce.

My son absolutely loves this nursery! All the staff are superb and are so friendly and helpful. The communication between nursery and home is brilliant and I always feel that I know what is going on.
