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 son has been at the nursery since he was 7 months old (now 2 1/2) and it is a struggle to get him to leave as he loves it so much. The team are all lovely and have worked so hard to make the nursery what it is today. My son particularly loves the ability to play outside in their wonderful grounds ...

From the moment our son joined, it’s been like his second home. The ladies are all so lovely and welcoming. They genuinely care and look after the little ones so well that I couldn’t wish for a better place for my son to go. Settling in period was a bit tough for me as I struggled with real mum...

We are so happy with our choice to send our son to Nature’s. He’s always excited to go and we love the updates and pictures we get through the app, seeing what he’s been up to that day. The outdoor space is fantastic and it’s great that it’s used year-round. But what makes Nature’s really...

I can't rate this nursery highly enough. We felt welcomed, safe and looked after from the very moment we approached it, a year ago. My son has made massive improvements in his confidence and has come out of his shell a lot since attending Nature's Nursery. He's made friends for life and is now ready...

Both our children have attended the Sunningdale branch over the past 5 years, and whilst there have been a few ups and downs (changes in operations and management, the pandemic, etc) over the years, the reason we have remained is due to the absolutely exceptional specific core teaching team that has ...

Preschool staff are amazing. Extremely caring, personable, always has time to speak to all parents when picking up and dropping off. I feel my son is in great care and I trust the team greatly. They recognise each child’s needs and are really supportive. Thank you, preschool teachers.

The staff are so warm and loving towards the children and really good at updating the parents. Our child had a hard time settling in at first, but the staff won her over with lots of cuddles and attention. The activities are really fun, and we noticed a huge growth in development while she was there....
