"During my maternity, I had the opportunity to adjust to being a parent whilst preparing to go back to work, I always wished to go back to work and knew that it would not be easy to juggle both. I started to seek childcare; it came a complete surprise to me to see the gulf between what childcare was and my expectations.
It wasn't just availability, it was the fact that many nurseries and childminders, although seemingly great from the outside, simply did not meet my expectations. I felt there was something missing, maybe something I could add to Childcare.
I opened Oak Tree Day Nursery in 2010 with a very specific aim; to provide excellent childcare, but from a home to home environment. Most important was to not just provide a great and nurturing nursery environment but to try and complement and work with parents to nurture children as if they are one of our own. This was easier said than done.
I have a great team behind me, that really gets to understand each child in their care, we bond with all our children and get to know each child as an individual. With individual needs and personalities, something that has been acknowledged by Ofsted.
Our nursery like the children in our care is young, and yet we continue to strive and develop to bring the very best care to our children. We are big enough to bring excellent education and childcare, but are small enough to really care and nurture.
We work to the Early Years Foundation Stage and understand the importance of providing a stimulating environment with a good balance of child led play and planned activities".
Our building is a 1930's period property, giving the children that home from home feel and environment, the building has been refurbished and adapted to provide a stimulating environment for our nursery setting.
The building lends its self to a place of learning. It provides a bright and captivating environment for young children to thrive in. A diverse and stimulating outdoor area surrounds the building.
Each of the rooms have been carefully designed to provide an enabling environment that is age specific, stimulating and allows the child to feel safe enough to explore.
