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.

Meet our Nursery Manager

Sophie Rumney
Nursery Manager

Hi, my name is Sophie, and I am the Manager of Partou Woodlands Halton. I have been in childcare since 2015, studying a Level 3 in Early Years before later achieving a BA Hons in Education Studies (Primary).

During my time in childcare, I have been given many insightful opportunities which have highlighted the importance of early years play in the development of each unique child. Our role at Partou is to ensure the wellbeing of each child is met by supporting the growth of developmental foundation blocks that enable children to flourish in their education and future life.

I believe that the most rewarding aspect of childcare is watching young children thrive as they grow with us. Being able to witness this makes everyday worthwhile!
