What makes Silks Farm Nursery School so special?

At Silks Farm Nursery School everything we do is designed around our core values: to teach, engage and provide children with the experiences and skills they need to be happy and successful in life.

 

Highly qualified, experienced & friendly staff

Our wonderful nursery Manager, Sandra Coulson has recently been announced as the NMT Nursery Manager of the Year 2014. 

 

The quality and commitment of our staff sets us apart from many other nurseries. We take the utmost care to recruit and retain only the best and most dedicated Early Years practitioners – we are well aware that a nursery is only as good as its staff team.

 

An unusually high proportion of our staff have formal qualifications in childcare and many have years of experience of working with children. All our staff are trained to extend each child's learning, giving them added confidence and a valuable head start for when they go to primary school.  

 

All our staff have Paediatric First Aid qualifications, whereas Ofsted require only one trained member of staff, per nursery.

 

Key Worker

Each child is assigned to a 'key worker', a specific person who is responsible for ensuring the care and safety of your children and for reviewing and monitoring their development and wellbeing as they settle into life at Silks Farm Nursery School.

 

Fabulous Outdoor Space

Surrounded by private farm land, we are very lucky to have access to our very own forest school, and our fantastic outdoor space provides us with an excellent opportunity to teach the children about their environment and to respect the wildlife living near to their homes and nursery.

Delicious Organic Meals

We are extremely proud to be one of the very few children’s nurseries in the UK to use exclusively organic ingredients in all of our food and drink.  Encouraging healthy eating and educating children about what they eat and where it comes from is vitally important for ensuring children develop a positive and healthy attitude towards food.

 

At Silks Farm Nursery School, our talented Nursery Chef prepares a wide range of nutritious meals for the children to try, using only the finest organic ingredients, and tasty fruit and vegetables picked from our very own organic kitchen garden.

 

All organic meals are included in your nursery fees, so you can be reassured that your child is getting the best start in life.

Our son has been going to Silks Farm Nursery School for 13 months and we are so pleased we found them. Everyone at the nursery have been brilliant, the carers and all the staff. Silks Farm Nursery School provides a happy, safe and stimulating environment and our son settled in immediately.

 

From one parent to another you will not go wrong in selecting Silks Farm Nursery School to care for that special person.
