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 family and I love everything about Westfields. Particularly the warm staff and the variety of activities available to the children. My daughter was new to the nursery in September and took no time at all to settle in with the encouragement and support of her key worker and supporting staff.

We have twin boys attending this setting. One has additional needs, and after being turned away from other settings, Westfields welcomed us as a family with open arms and a warm smile. I feel the nursery has gone above and beyond and always keeps us up to date on how the boys are developing. The ke...

Our daughter was one of the youngest babies to start at Westfields in a long time. She only took around 2 weeks to settle in and that's down to the fabulous and attentive efforts of the staff. Early on, as a team, they identified that her original key worker may not have built up enough experience to...

Fast forward just a few months and he absolutely loves nursery and is thriving - he is so happy to go, adores his key workers, and seeing him get so much from it is just ...

My son has been at Westfields for just over three years and is so happy there. When he first started he found it really difficult, but the staff in the baby room were very patient and kind, so he soon settled. He also found some transitions difficult, particularly when returning after the first Covid...

The team are great with my children. They have helped them with their confidence and growth. I feel they have really got to know them and their own little personalities. I am always amazed at how much they have learnt.

Why Partou?

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
