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.

I can't recommend this nursery enough. My daughter was just over 4 months old when she started and they have been amazing. Constant reassurance and updates meant that I could relax at work. They care for my daughter like she is family. The standard of care is extremely high. My daughter is thriving w...

I feel relaxed leaving my child each morning. Huge improvements have been made to the setting and it is very well run. You feel like part of a wider family that takes an interest in all members of the family. I would highly recommend 5*.

My little boy has come to this nursery since he was 7 months old and has loved it. That being said since the manager joined back end of last year (2023) he has come on leaps and bounds. I have given some real concerns about previous management/advice or lack of received and the manager has literally ...

Fantastic nursery! My twin boys have been here for eight months now, and they absolutely love it! They run through the door without looking back. Staff are kind, caring and really do take great interest in the children. They make such a fuss of them both, and the boys love them all. They listen caref...

Throughout my day at work, I always look forward to seeing an updated picture on his learning book, and every time, he is smiling and being kept entertained by the girls. I feel safe with him in their...

My child is fairly reserved around those other than family but absolutely loves going to Jack and Jill. I can see he loves those caring for him and vice versa. The menu is also fantastic, exposing him to a variety of foods.

My daughter was very shy when she joined the nursery a few months ago; she loves coming now and is always so happy to tell me about her day and the activities she did. She tells me how much she likes her teachers and friends.
