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 are wonderful. They are really caring and attentive. My daughter is delighted to go to nursery in the morning which is so reassuring and makes balancing work and family life so much easier. Couldn’t recommend Scotts Wood enough.

We are so pleased with this lovely nursery! We were nervous about putting our one-year-old into nursery at the time but the staff were so supportive, kept in contact and help made the process so easy. Since then, our son has loved the past 10 months and we couldn't recommend the staff in the toddler ...

Our daughter started at Scott’s Wood in January, and she has settled in so well, and that’s all down to the nursery. The staff in the baby room are wonderful; they clearly love what they do, and they go above and beyond. The nursery is well run with great communication and safeguarding too.

We are so happy with how well our little boy has settled in at Scotts Wood; in just a few months he’s been in the baby room, he’s really flourished. When we arrive in the morning, as we are walking up to the door, he starts smiling and getting excited once he recognises where he is, and he happ...
