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.

My little boy has been going to DayBreak for about 6 months. It was difficult for him to settle but the staff has always been so patient and caring. He is a happy boy now and they found a way to make him happy, he is only going part-time but I feel that they really know him well. I definitely would...

The nursery staff are incredibly caring and have taught my son so much. This week he asked me where the lava was on a picture of a volcano, and then he told me that he had been learning about this at nursery. The best part is the way that the team have nurtured him and his confidence levels. He used ...

The team at Daybreak Amersham are wonderful. Both of my children have absolutely thrived while attending the nursery. From baby room, through toddlers and into pre-school, my boys were constantly entertained, engaged and loved by the staff in the rooms! Highly recommended.

My daughter is extremely happy at nursery and can't wait to start her day each time I drop her off. The staff are friendly, enthusiastic, kind and very hard-working, and I have every confidence in their ability to care for and develop my daughter. I can't recommend Daybreak highly enough.

A lovely nursery that really cares for my child. They are always very willing to work with parents and welcome feedback, as well, which is great. They have fantastic outside space and are very conveniently located to the local tube station as well if needing to get into London.

I have found the staff have been excellent with my child. I haven’t had a problem with parking as when we viewed the nursery we knew there wasn’t much space on site and there are plenty of parking spaces near the nursery. If I've had any concerns or questions, I've spoken to staff or management, ...

My little boy has been attending Daybreak Nursery for six weeks and I could not be happier. All of the staff there are delightful, knowledgeable and caring, and his key worker is simply the best. I actually visited during an open day earlier in the year and meeting the key worker sold it for me. The ...

I looked around many nurseries in the area and found that this nursery was by far the best! They had a nice group of staff members that made us as a family feel very welcome and although there was a waiting list I was lucky enough to be able to start my child when I wanted.
