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.

Leo’s is a great nursery. They’re really accommodating as our little one had to go dairy free at the request of our doctor and it wasn’t an issue. The staff are brilliant and you can tell they love working at the nursery.

Leo's Day Nursery - West Bridgford is doing an amazing job, given the pressures of the sector. My daughter's key person has a gentle but reasonable and age-appropriate approach and is always available for a chat. I like that it is a smaller nursery, where you quickly know everyone and the children ca...

I can’t say enough good things about Leo’s. The key workers are attentive and get to know each child. Time is taken to get to know the likes and dislikes of each child, and drive learning according to their key milestones. There is a family feel about the nursery which is great for the children, ...

The staff all take time to forge strong relationships, and our son has always been particularly fond of his keyworkers as he has moved through the nursery. The staff are happy to give as detailed a repo...

Leo’s has a warm, family feel to it. Both the staff and the building create a wonderful nurturing environment. My daughter really struggles with separation anxiety and they have gone out of their way to reassure her and me. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Why Partou?

For us at Partou, childcare isn’t just a job, it’s a journey – one where every child leads us in a unique new direction.

As part of the Netherlands’ largest childcare group, we’ve access to world-leading expertise in learning and development, so you can be confident your child will benefit from an experience as unique as they are.

Of course, care is as much about empathy as education, and ours is a child-led approach that emphasises building confidence and curiosity – so that every child in our care has the freedom to flourish.

Reassurance for you and your little one


We’re more than just a team; we’re a close community driven by our passion for childcare, and our commitment to each individual child’s development. We know that by working together, we’re stronger.


In our community, compassion isn’t just a word; it’s our way of life. By embracing our differences, we make our community more diverse and vibrant. We build strong, supportive relationships with the children and each other, based on trust and understanding.

Continuous learning

We believe strongly in development, for the children in our care and for ourselves. Through continuous learning, we help our team and our children reach their full potential. Together, we make a positive impact, in our communities and across wider society.
