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.

He has lots of friends and has made excellent progress this term. He now eats a variety of food which in the past has been an issue. Watching other children eat a v...

When she moves up each time a member of staff takes us to the next level and introduces us to who is running that level. We feel that she is in a very positive and safe place wh...

My granddaughter has really progressed in all areas of her development recently. She is now walking and saying a lot more. My granddaughter always looks so happy when I pick her up from nursery. She seems to have really settled into Mini Tots and gets along with everyone.

My son (now 4 years old ) has been attending Playtime Nursery since he was 1. He absolutely loves going to preschool. He can’t wait to see his friends and key workers. He's always so excited to show me what he’s learnt from preschool. Highest quality of care from management and key workers.

My daughter has always been so happy at Playtime, she is well loved and looked after by the staff there. She’s made lots of friends and is always excited to go to nursery. Playtime is open during school holidays and very close to the train station which really helps balancing family and work life.

My little boy has been with the nursery since October. He is our first child and therefore I was extremely nervous about the whole experience but the management and staff made me and my husband feel so at ease.

I cannot recommend Playtime Nursery Shepperton enough as a nursery or preschool to send your little ones to. Our journey as a family has not been an easy one with finding out that our Son was profoundly deaf whilst he was just 6 months in attendance. To say the nursery have been supportive is an unde...
