At Greyfriars we want to help give your child the very best start in life. We work with children, parents, external agencies and the community to ensure the welfare and safety of our children. Children have the right to be treated with respect, to thrive and to be safe from any abuse, in whatever form. Please read our full Safeguarding Children and Young People/Child Protection Policy for further information.
Our nursery promotes a healthy lifestyle and a high standard of safety and hygiene. Please see the Health and Safety section of our Policy and Procedures Pack or information regarding: outdoor play, information sources, cleanliness, risk assessment, smoking, alcohol, environment, supervision, adult safety, management, special considerations, nappy changing, toileting and sun care.
Our aim is to provide for the individual development needs of each child. All children in the group, irrespective of any special needs or disabilities, are encouraged wherever possible and appropriate to participate in the group’s activities. Please see the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities section of our Policy and Procedures Pack for more information.
We believe that children and adults flourish best in an ordered environment, where everyone knows what is expected of them and children are free to develop their play and learning without fear. We aim help children develop self-discipline and self-esteem in an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement. See the Behaviour Management section of our Policy and Procedures Pack for more information.
It’s our intention to make our nursery genuinely accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community. To find out how we accomplish this, please see the Admissions section of our Policy and Procedures Pack for further information.
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!
