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 team are friendly and efficient. Amazing with little ones, learning and teaching alongside building friendships. Great outdoor play area. The boys can't get enough of the yummy food, trying new things whilst developing eating skills.

I am the mother of a 3 year old who’s been in childcare since 11 months old. I’d always thought of childcare as a necessary pest to allow me to work. I have my own business so not working was never an option. Tiny Teapots is the first time that I have considered childcare to be something more tha...

After viewing a few nurseries I was set on Tiny Teapots. The manager is so lovely and welcoming. All the staf...

At Tiny Teapots, the new manager and the team listened to everything I was worried about and made my daughter feel so at ease during her settling-in sessions and her first couple of we...

I'm overwhelmed by how lovely this nursery is, my son is 19 months and he has settled in so well. He loves his teacher and his speech already has come along so much more. He is always happy and content. The staff and manager are so present and helpful. I'm so happy with our choice.

My youngest child has attended Tiny Teapots since the age of 10 months. There was a period of time when things were disrupted, with closures and high staff turnover etc, but since the new manager arrived, things have improved considerably. My son now looks forward to coming and is forming bonds with ...

Tiny Teapots is a fantastic nursery. My little one is so happy there; it is clear he has lots of fun! It is a calm and nurturing environment with lots to explore and learn. He tries all sorts of different foods which inspires me to give them a try at home. I feel my son's individual needs are met and...

A fun caring setting with excellent staff, there have been some changes since my two daughters started but we've still had consistent care throughout. My two-and-a-half-year-old still attends and she loves it there. The only downfall is communication can sometimes be lacking but there have been real ...

Both of our children have attended and it was fantastic when we first joined. There had been a lot of changes through Covid and it finally feels like we're getting back to the good old days. The manager is enthusiastic and constantly tries to make positive changes to make it even better. The one thin...

My daughter loves every day in this nursery. She really developed so much, her skills, her speech is much better, and every day she understands more. There are things to be improved, but I can’t imagine any different place for her than Tiny Teapots. Keep up with good work.

I love the nursery. All the staff are very welcoming and friendly. It is nice to know that most of the staff knows my sons name and they are happy to see him when I leave him in the morning.
