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.

The staff at Jack and Jill are great. I had problems with my little girls behaviour at times but the staff have been fantastic with her. Always patient and attentive. They are also always on hand with any questions or queries that I have.

Both my children have attended this nursery. The oldest has gone to school, and the youngest still attends. Almost 3 years and both my children absolutely love this nursery and the staff. They complain about the days they’re not at nursery because they feel miss the staff and their friends. I love ...

All the girls and boys who work at Oxton House are amazing; they were so welcoming when my little boy first joined in September! He settled in straight away due to them giving him a home-from-home experience. Handover is always very thorough, and I am always kept updated with any information. The man...

I was very nervous about choosing a new nursery for my 2-year-old, but what a relief. From the second I walked into Oxton House, I felt at ease and watched as my daughter happily settled into the surroundings and joined in playing with the toys on her very first visit. I cannot praise the staff eno...

Both of my children have been so well cared for at Oxton House Day Nursery. They have been happy and have thrived. I consider myself very lucky that I’ve been able to drop my children and go to work feeling confident that they’ll have a wonderful day with genuine and lovely people.

My little girl started nursery when she just turned one and on the first day she loved it and all the staff. Especially her first key worker, she was so kind and seemed like a person I could to trust to look after my girl. As well, my little girl always goes in with a smile and comes out with a smile...
