Meet our Nursery Manager

Samina Moor
Nursery Manager

Hello, my name is Samina Noor and I am the Manager here at Partou Silchester Manor.

I hold a NVQ level 3 in Childcare and Education and have had the privilege of working with children of all ages during my 20 years childcare experience. I believe that ‘Early Years’ plays a vital role in shaping young minds, for their cognitive development, their ability to think and being able to problem solve. My team at Silchester take pride not only at offering high standard of care but also in providing a rich and fun filled environment which allows children to make choices, explore, learn, and develop.

Being a mum of 2 young children I respect the feelings of our families and understand the importance of positive relationships. My team and I work closely with our families to ensure that together we can create best childhood experiences for our children.

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 garden is a great size and my grandchild enjoys her time here. She is happy here and her confidence has developed, which the girls have worked on with her. Her being a fussy eater was a worry, but her key worker has supported with this. Very happy with everything the nursery offers.

Silchester Manor is a great nursery. The staff are very supportive, especially with the settling-in process and calming the nerves of parents. The communications have been open from the start, and they really know how to meet my daughter's needs.

Nothing but good words to say about this nursery. I feel relaxed and at ease sending my daughter in as I know the care she gets is great, and she is always so excited to go in, learn and play.

Why Partou?

For us at Partou, childcare isn’t just a job, it’s a journey – one where every child leads us in a unique new direction.

As part of the Netherlands’ largest childcare group, we’ve access to world-leading expertise in learning and development, so you can be confident your child will benefit from an experience as unique as they are.

Of course, care is as much about empathy as education, and ours is a child-led approach that emphasises building confidence and curiosity – so that every child in our care has the freedom to flourish.

Reassurance for you and your little one


We’re more than just a team; we’re a close community driven by our passion for childcare, and our commitment to each individual child’s development. We know that by working together, we’re stronger.


In our community, compassion isn’t just a word; it’s our way of life. By embracing our differences, we make our community more diverse and vibrant. We build strong, supportive relationships with the children and each other, based on trust and understanding.

Continuous learning

We believe strongly in development, for the children in our care and for ourselves. Through continuous learning, we help our team and our children reach their full potential. Together, we make a positive impact, in our communities and across wider society.
