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 daughter has been attending Park Wood for a year now. I have moved out of the area in this time but kept her there due to how well she has progressed and how much she enjoys it. She started in the baby room which is run tremendously and good staffing-to-child ratio. There was appropriate integrati...

Lovely nursery. The girls are lovely; they do a fantastic job. My little one just loves going to the nursery every single day; she never says no if she doesn't go, she'll ask to go - that shows you that she is treated well.

From the moment we reviewed Park Wood Private Day Nursery and Pre-school we knew this was the place we wanted our children to go, it is so welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. We didn't arrange a viewing and were given a surprise visit to be shown around and it was no problem at all. The p...
