Our Parents

As we look after a maximum of 34 children, we are able to spend a lot of time getting to know parents and children to ensure that both needs are met fully. We recognise that parents are their child’s first educators and that they have unique information and understanding of their child.

Each child has a key worker who works closely with the child and parent. All parents are made to feel welcome and valued. We work in partnership with you and your family to enhance and build on your child’s previous experience.

We have regular events where you can come into our nursery and find out more about your child’s development, view their Journals, read their progress reports and meet other families. We welcome any suggestions and opinions and believe in an equal exchange of information.

‘Children are highly confident and show an excellent level of independence for their age, as a result of staff practice and a carefully organised learning environment… Highly successful strategies engage all parents in their children's learning in the nursery and at home.’
Ofsted 2012

‘Having been initially hesitant about sending our daughter to a small nursery, having previously attended a large establishment, we have been extremely pleased with Mains Farm House Nursery and believe it offers excellent childcare, support and facilitates learning and development in a very warm, caring environment.

Our daughter now rarely wants to leave and is never any trouble to drop off, which all shows clearly how much she enjoys being here. The small caring environment enables extensive activities to be completed in short time periods. The learning and play can be tailored to the interests of the child and group. Change in the settings activities is frequent to ensure the interests of the children are captured. Frequent trips outside into the community are taken and then activities are devised from the things seen and done on these trips. I do not hesitate to recommend Mains Farm House Nursery to friends. I am extremely happy with our choice to move to this nursery, the way the staff care for the children, tailor activities and continually strive to make further improvements is excellent.’
