The staffing ratios are as follows:
Over 3 years - 1 adult per 8 children
2-3 years - 1 adult per 4 children

We comply with the recommendations of the Environmental Health Department - a booklet is kept at the Nursery should parents or guardians wish to read it on request.

Starting Nursery
When a child begins at our Nursery we encourage parents and guardians to stay with the child as the period of separation is slowly lengthened until your child is settled and confident. The time needed for adjustment will vary from child to child. Each child will have a dedicated group and 'keyworker' for the entire stay at the Nursery. Keyworkers and parents are encouraged to develop a mutually supportive relationship to ensure continuity of care from home to the Nursery. The development of a child is recorded by staff in learning journeys, which the parent or guardian are welcome to read and contribute to at any time.

A wide range of activities and experiences are provided to help the children to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially, in line with current curriculum recommendations. Outings are an important part of nursery life and are arranged as often as possible. We have a minibus, which is equipped with child safety seats and full insurance. We also use other forms of transport such as the local bus and Le Petit Train and sometimes go for walks.
