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 twins came last year and always have the zeal to come to the nursery every day. The staff are kind and engage with them in activities. My twins are always coming home with artwork to show me what they did that day. It's amazing!

After our first visit, we knew this was the place for us. Not only is the place massive, both inside and out, but the level of care given by every member of staff is plain to see. The children were all actively engaged with the staff, and smiles were visible on every face. The assistance provided by ...

Two particular members of staff are absolutely amazing. As a first-time Mum, I was so worried about leaving my d...

My daughter has been going to Stonehouse since her old nursery shut abruptly in 2022. They were very welcoming, and my daughter settled straight in. The staff are truly wonderful, and my daughter loves her time here. The range of food and activities is fantastic. I would recommend it to anyone.

My daughter started at Stonehouse in Nov 2022 after we moved to the area. She'd been at another nursery for 18 months before that, and we were worried she wouldn't settle, but we really needn't have worried at all. From the first phone call I had with the assistant manager to enquire about availabili...

I wouldn't send my son anywhere else. He absolutely loves going into nursery so much that he pushes me out the door in the morning. He adores all those that are involved in his care, and I know all the nursery practitioners adore him or he wouldn't be the way he is. Every single one of the staff is b...

Fantastic nursery. My son loves it there. They do a variety of activities every day, develop their skills and lead children to independence. My son is bringing home good manners and is rapidly developing his vocabulary, and I can see he behaves with respect to other children when we are on playground...
