All about us
What makes us special?
We make sure that when you leave your little one, you feel relaxed and at ease, knowing they are in the best possible hands.
Our food is all cooked freshly on the premises by our professional and qualified chef who was recently awarded an excellent '5 stars' by the Environmental Health Agency. She takes great care to ensure that all food is in line with each child's religious and cultural needs and is adapted to meet any special/medical dietary requirements.
The nursery was established in the 1990's and has been part of community life for many years. The spacious rooms and relaxed atmosphere means that the children in our care develop independence, confidence within a loving environment. Our beautiful sensory room and delightful soft play room offer each child the chance to move around the building without feeling confined. The newly refurbished decor is bright, airy and contemporary.
We are positioned in close vicinity to the university, the hospitals and a major bus route and we have our own ample parking space.
Our inclusive ethos recognises and values every child for whom they are regardless of colour, culture, ability or social background.
Our fees offer value for money - you pay for only 48 weeks a year and there is 15% discount for siblings.
The nursery has three large care rooms in addition to a sleep room, a sensory room, a soft play room and three large outdoor areas as well as a fully fitted kitchen and staff areas.
We are a multi-cultural setting and positively welcome all families and children regardless of gender, culture and/or faith. We are particularly skilled and practised at supporting children with special educational needs and those for whom English is an additional language.
We believe in partnership with parents/carers and have an open-door policy enabling you to discuss issues with us at any time.We provide meals, snacks, nappies, formula milk and all other essentials the children may need whilst at the nursery.
All our members of staff are qualified and experienced. By providing a safe, supportive, stimulating and fun environment to explore and discover the world, we help children to grow and express themselves to their full potential.
We at Nightingales know how important it is that your little one feels safe and happy when at nursery. We therefore implement a keyperson system, which means that one of our staff has the pleasure of getting to know you, your family and most importantly your child very well. This builds a special and mutual bond of trust and affection, allowing your little one to thrive during their nursery experience.
We are experienced in supporting children with English as second language and have many dual language and culturally diverse resources within the nursery.
Nightingales provides a safe and secure environment at all times. No person is authorised to collect a child unless previously arranged. No unauthorised person is allowed entry to the nursery. Confidentiality is taken very seriously.
