Chestnut House Kindergarten provides care for children aged six months to five-years-old, offering children early years education in a safe and secure environment.

Staff at the nursery place strong emphasis on each child’s personal and social development, recognising that each child is different and offering a variety of different resources and activities to accommodate the needs of all children.

The safety and security of children at the nursery is of paramount importance and activities are designed ensuring that children are safe at all times.

Chestnut House provides children with the opportunity to enjoy free-play as well as planned activities that are designed to meet each child’s individual needs and interests according to their personal level of development.

The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage and tailors all activities around this, while pre-school age children follow the Letters and Sounds framework when developing their speech and language skills.

Chestnut House Kindergarten believe that children thrive when there is a positive partnership between the childcare provider and parents. This partnership is characterised by trust and mutual support and parents are encouraged to discuss their child's progress with the nursery team.
