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.

I am a Foster carer and took on a placement who had barely attended nursery. There were speech and neurological delays and a major lack of social skills. I chose Magic Tree because I liked the atmosphere and I witnessed the nurturing skills and empathy the staff shared with all of the children during...

I always enjoy picking my grandson up from nursery as he’s always so happy after his session. His key worker always gives me a full rundown on his day. In the car on the way home, he never stops chatting about what he and his friends did during the day and his favourite story too.

My child started at the nursery at 9 months old and as a first-time mum I was anxious to leave my son but didn't need to worry as my son absolutely loves going to nursery, he loves all the staff and his milestones were encouraged. His confidence to interact with his peers and staff has made him a hap...

Magic Tree has been so good with my son throughout the baby room - preschool. All the staff are so lovely and friendly. I will be enrolling my other son when I go back to work. A special mention to one lady in the "preschool room", my son adores her, and she always does such a great job!

My son loves his time at Magic Tree! The staff are always friendly, provide excellent handovers about my son’s day and I can tell that they genuinely care for and about him. The activities they provide have aided his learning and opened up his imagination.

My son has been attending Magic Tree from the age of 18 months all the way through to preschool age where he is now. He has progressed well in his learning and development. He always has a good time and likes to tell us all about his friends at the end of the day when we collect him. Magic Tree suppo...

My daughter absolutely loves coming to Magic Tree Day Nursery Yate, the staff are amazing and my daughter's key worker is incredible. The staff always communicate so well with updates, and when I pick my daughter up they always give me a really detailed rundown of her day. I have complete trust in al...

I always feel listened to and that the staff are willing to do whatever they can to support the children. Nothing is too much trouble and they really take the time to get to know each child as an individual.

Having had the experience of a different nursery with my eldest child I am really disappointed with Magic Tree. My daughter has attended for nearly 2 years and has hardly any info/photos on the online learning book. I have never had any ‘review of development’. The staff are more interested in cl...

I always feel my daughter is safe, and for me that is the priority at that age. Her dairy allergy is very well managed and the catering and meal options are nutritious and well-balanced. We are always welcomed with a smile and welcomed in. We have a good handover and drop-off. There are always...

I recommend Magic Tree. The staff are friendly and my son looks forward to going to Preschool each week. He tries a variety of food there and there are lots of different activities and toys to keep them entertained. I’m happy I chose this nursery as my son seems to love it!

We registered our son at Magic Tree following their 'outstanding' rating with Ofsted (which has sadly been rescinded). I've been told staff and management had changed around significantly prior to us starting and has continued to. However, all the staff we've encountered are very pleasant and clearly...

Would think twice again before signing my son to this Nursery. My son started to attend there from June and they’ve managed to close his room and cancel his session 5 times and I already know he is losing another afternoon next week. The first two sessions were his settling days, then when speaki...
