High Adult To Child Ratios

We run comfortably within the 1:4 for children under 3 years and 1:8 for over 3s per session.


We are monitored by OFSTED and were last assessed as 'GOOD' OFSTED Report



We are a community nursery, run by an elected committee of parents who employ the staff to run and manage the sessions. The nursery operates in a mobile and in a classroom within Heather Avenue Infant School and is registered with The Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted) for up to 22 children per session per room between the ages of 2 years 6 months and 5 years.

High adult/child ratio

The Nursery aims to provide your child with an enjoyable nursery experience, working within the Early Years Foundation Stage which is a play based framework that acknowledges that every child is unique and they learn and develop at different rates and in different ways.

The Nursery has a stimulating and fun-filled atmosphere in which children develop physically, mentally and socially through play and interaction with other children and staff. We give children the opportunity to play with friends of mixed ages, encourage them to interact with each other and learn about co-operation and sharing. We talk to them whilst they play and encourage them to do things for themselves and others, promoting independence.

The nursery recognises the need for a high adult to child ratio and runs well within the guidelines of 1:4 for children under 3 years and 1:8 for children over 3 years per session. This enables the staff to provide adequate support and security for your child as well as offering a wide range of activities within the educational curriculum at the same time as assessing and monitoring each child's individual needs.

The nursery operates an equal opportunities policy that does not discriminate against gender, race, ethnic origin, special educational needs or competence in English. Our educational programme and working practices promote equality of access and opportunity for all children to learn and make progress.

We accept government funding for 2, 3 & 4 year olds including the 30 hours funding and accept payments from most, if not all, childcare voucher schemes, including the Tax Free Childcare scheme.
