The Partou experience

At Partou, the children lead the way. They explore their surroundings and learn about the world they live in, by choosing for themselves which activity they want to join in with next.

Our team are there to care for them and keep them safe. To nurture their emerging abilities and encourage them to seize each fun-packed day. But not to tell them what to do next.

Why? Because when children are allowed to choose their own activities, rather than being told what to do, they naturally choose the activities they’re most interested in. And scientific research has shown that being interested in what they’re doing is the easiest and best way for children to learn.

Food & nutrition

Creating healthy eating habits for young children stretches far beyond their time with us. It encourages a lifelong positive relationship with food whilst building healthy bodies and healthy minds. Here’s how we encourage healthy eating habits:

  • Rotating menus: Evidence shows regular exposure to foods helps children to develop their taste for them, yet we still want to offer variety. So, we rotate our menus on a three-to-four-week basis, offering the perfect balance between exposing children to new foods yet allowing them to become familiar with flavours.
  • A lunchtime focus: We prioritise lunch as a time where children can enjoy their food. There is a social aspect to all lunches and, where possible, children are encouraged to take an active interest in the food they eat.
  • Fresh food everyday: We serve children fresh food every day and accommodate many different dietary requirements. We have procedures in place to protect children with food allergies and offer different meal options too. If your child has a dietary requirement, simply let us know as part of our registration process and we’ll make sure we meet the needs of your child.

Furniture, days, planning to refurbish the garden and play zones. Teachers are very friendly and always happy to help with everything. My son never complain...

Our child was at this nursery from 2021 through 2023. We'd previously moved from a different nursery where communication was a major problem, so we especially appreciated how communicative and transparent the staff were. For instance, when there were issues with covid, they emailed and called anyone ...

I am very happy with Apples and Cherries Day Nursery. Before my child started the nursery, I was very apprehensive and indecisive about sending my child to a nursery until my child attended this nursery. On my child's first day the staff and the children made my child feel very welcome. My child didn...

Worst management, false person. When it's not in their interest, they don't answer emails. They lost my son's slippers, in December they sent him home with pneumonia (in the morning was OK because otherwise they wouldn't get him at nursery). I paid for the little group until he was 2 years old, but ...
