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 attends twice a week and the staff are always so kind and supportive. I've had some issues through the start of the year and I've been so well looked after it sometimes feels like they are here for the parents as much as the children.

Our child always has a great time. We don't get many photo updates. We have seen lots of staff come and go. There is a fantastic nursery teacher. I have found the cleanliness has improved as I always used to find my daughter coming home with a funny smell and filthy.

I can not recommend The Nursery On Nursery Lane enough! My little boy has always been so happy here and has made such an incredible bond with all the caregivers he has had. He talks about all the things he has done each day with so much excitement. I am just so happy he is so happy!

My daughter only goes one day a week but she loves it! All the staff are lovely to speak to, really engaging with you and I feel like she is really looked after. They always have lots of different activities on the go. There is lots of outdoor play where possible and a variety of food on offer.

Our son started here late last year, we were worried about his progress coming up to the twenty-month mark and we knew starting nursery would hopefully help. We couldn’t fault the care and the support we have received from the nursery's acting manager and his key worker. They have been nothing but ...

My daughter started the nursery when she was 12 months and now she is 27 months. Now she loves going and is always smiling when I pick her up. Her speech and overall development has come on leaps and bounds. The staff are all very friendly and seem to know what all the children have been up to that d...

What a wonderful nursery. From day one, everyone was so welcoming, which made our sons first time at nursery not only a great success but a place he looked for to go to. Thank you to all the staff; you guys are amazing.

My daughter statutes the nursery since September 2020. She absolutely adores her key worker and sings songs about her all the time. She wakes up eager to go, and on her days off she’s wanting to go too. From greeting the staff at the door, you can really tell they take care and have everything set ...

The nursery On Nursery Lane has been an amazing setting for all 3 of our children. Our eldest spent a year there after moving to the area, and our twins have been there for 3 years, and we will be so sad to leave the team when they go to school in September. The children love going to the nursery and...
