A new concept in nursery provision has opened in Stony Stratford, offering flexible day care and a Jamie Oliver inspired menu that even the most discerning young guests would approve of.
Adorable Nurseries is a 36-place nursery providing naturally inspiring and exceptional care from an open plan setting designed specifically to create the best possible space for children aged between three months and five years.
The setting offers a safe and welcoming environment that includes bespoke areas dedicated to individual age groups as well as access to extensive outdoor facilities, providing endless opportunities for youngsters to play and learn through art and design, water, sleep, music and a free flow activities in a secure and landscaped play garden.
Adorable Nurseries is the vision of local business woman and mother-of-two Sian Macintyre who came up with the concept after struggling to find suitable nursery places for her own children, both now of school age.
Ms Macintyre commented: “I wanted to create a nursery where I would be happy to send my own children. We aim to provide a fun and stimulating environment where youngsters are supported and encouraged to reach their full potential.
“Adorable Nurseries - Stony Stratford is the first of a number of day nurseries we are planning to open under the same branding, offering the highest quality nursery care and education available in the area.”
The nursery is following the Jamie Oliver Kitchen Garden plan aimed at encouraging children from a young age to grow, nurture and cook their own garden produce. The gardens at Adorable Nurseries are already providing chef Matthew Chapman with a wide selection of home grown seasonal fruits and vegetables that he uses in the preparation of his organic daily menu, featuring recipes devised by Jamie as part of the project.
Situated on London Road, just 100 metres from the high street, Adorable Nurseries has been created to provide much needed childcare for families living in in around the town, following the recent closure of council and charity funded places. Whilst the government pays for 15 hours per week day care for all two-year-olds until they start school, younger children receive no funding and nursery places are scarce in many parts of the country.
The nursery is fully staffed by a dedicated team who not only have the highest level of qualifications (All are Epipen, Paedeatric first aid and Smile Award trained) combined with their knowledge empathy and unprecedented experience will provide youngsters with the best possible childcare and a head start to their Early Years education and development. It is open from Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 6.30pm, 51 weeks of the year, and offers flexible sessions to fit in with parents’ work patterns and other family commitments.
