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.

Lovely considerate nursery that always goes above and beyond. My daughter always comes home with a smile and confidence. The staff clearly love their jobs and really take the time to get to know your child individually.

My baby joined Chestnuts in January 2024 at 1 year old and it's been such a positive experience. She has settled in so well and gets excited every time we arrive. The staff are excellent and I feel really confident and comfortable leaving her. I get lots of updates during the day - all the activities...

My child has recently joined nursery and is thriving. He always comes home very chatty and with a smile across his face. As parents, we love the app and enjoy receiving updates about what he has got up to and what he has eaten. All the staff are so kind and have made him feel very welcome and safe.

Each day I drop my daughter off she's smiling and on pick up she's happily playing. What more could I ask for? Our daughter has been with Chestnuts since she was 3 months old and I have never once worried. Chestnuts also did an amazing job of taking care of an emotional mum! Special thanks to one sta...

I cannot talk highly enough about this nursery and the staff within it. My child was a lockdown baby so his social skills were very limited during the first nine months of his life. When I enrolled him, both myself and my little boy were very nervous as this was a very new experience to us. The girls...

The staff are incredible with both of my boys aged 3 and 1. I feel 100% comfortable leaving them in very safe hands. Their skills have come on hugely since starting nursery, social, speech and problem-solving. I would recommend this nursery without question and trust the staff explicitly with my chil...

Would highly recommend Chestnuts Longlevens Day Nursery. My daughter, with additional needs, is currently there and everybody is brilliant with her extra care needs and she is coming out of her shell so much and that’s down to a lot of hard work from everyone. They are amazing with her and make me ...

My three children have all been to Chestnuts Longlevens Day Nursery over the last eleven years. The older two (now 12 and 9 years old) went from the baby room all the way through to the preschool. They loved every minute of their time at Chestnuts. They were well cared for by all the staff and made l...

Amazing nursery, staff are warm and natural with the children. Staff have gone above and beyond to accommodate my little one's individual needs and communicate well with me about any issues! I feel completely comfortable leaving my little one when I drop them off at nursery.

All the staff members are very polite and professional. My son has been learning a lot in the nursery, he’s always engaged in activities which he loves showing off coming home. They are very helpful with the transition and now the nursery feels like a daily routine for our little one. He loves his ...

Lovely staff and my daughter always seems happy going in and coming out of nursery. I think the outside of pre-school could do with a bit of updating, it looks very tired and I think parents would benefit from the app being updated more often with what our children have been up to that day/new thing...

Lovely nursery. Good standards and lots of activities planned during each week. Started in the baby room at 9 months old and is now in 2-3s. Lovely, friendly staff. Freshly cooked meals and healthy. Good variety too.
