It is our policy to produce regular risk assessments and safety checks are undertaken on a daily basis. We have a weekly caretaker who oversees any maintenance work on the premises and we employ the services of an experienced fire safety company to ensure a safe environment for all staff and children. 

Our nursery environment focusses on encouraging children’s independence to support their learning.  We encourage exploration, investigation and fun through freedom of choice, child-centred activities and adult support and interaction.

We work in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure the individual needs of each child are met. Through daily observations and discussions with parents, individual plans are made to further extend and support each child’s learning and development in all area of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our nursery specialises is offering holistic care, placing an emphasis on well balanced, interesting and nutritious meals. Our meals are planned on a 4 week rota which caters for a full range of special dietary requirements ensuring that each child’s requirements are safely met. From a young age we promote an interest in cooking and give the children the opportunity to grow their own herbs and vegetables. We ensure that all children take part in daily physical play either in our extensive grounds or our separate games room.

We believe that each child deserves the best possible start in life to support their full potential. A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future. A secure, safe and happy childhood is important and at Mountford House Nursery we strive to offer all the provisions to support each child to thrive.
