Deliver a balance of care and learning for all children, within a happy and calm environment.
Provide an environment that encourages a true love of learning: from basic numeracy, literacy, science and problem solving to developing physical movement, learning to forge and develop relationships, and nurturing a real sense of fun.
Offer reassurance, comfort and sensitive interactions.
Encourage children to learn good manners, tolerance and respect.
Capture the magic of childhood and help develop each child’s natural curiosity, with activities devised for individual circumstances.
Develop the confidence and self-esteem of each child within their peer group and support children to learn how to keep themselves safe.
Our enthusiastic, caring and professional team works closely with parents to provide the very best Early Years education within a safe, stimulating and fun environment.
All senior staff and room leaders are qualified Nursery Nurses with a minimum qualification of NVQ Level 3 in Childcare, Early Years Educator or equivalent. Most of our Nursery Assistants are training for their Level 2 qualification, or have achieved Level 2 and are training for Level 3. We require all staff to attend Emergency Paediatric First Aid Training and Child Protection Training.
We provide our staff with comprehensive induction and development training, so that they fully understand our ethos and policies and continue to develop their skills. This ensures team members feel confident and supported to act in the best interest of each child, share information and seek specific help, should the child need it.
We also have a dedicated administrator, human resources team and a finance team to streamline the fee payment process and accounts.
The ethos under which we operate is a Christian one characterised by the values of faith, hope and love. Our team is committed to supporting these principles. If you would like to find out more about our ethos, please visit the Greyfriars Ministries website.
What the parents say
Greyfriars nursery is great. My child is so excited to get there every morning. I would recommend the nursery to family and friends.
I have found everyone to be very supportive, professional and friendly. On my child’s first day I was clearly upset. The staff recognised this and very kind. They didn’t make a fuss but called very soon afterwards to say that my son was settling well and stopped crying.
Very good leadership. A great team.
My son has been attending the nursery from age two for almost one and a half years now. He loves going to nursery daily. The key worker has made sure my son is looked after constantly and that he does his work independently. The nursery is a second home for him.
Very friendly, experts in child development and a team that I trust to care for my child. Also everyone must be very patient!!!
My child seems to be settling well. Overall, she seems well looked after and she is making good progress with her speech. Thank you!
