As a nursery we are very proud of our OFSTED inspection report. Put simply the inspector reported our nursery as GOOD in all areas. To see the full OFSTED inspection report please click here or go to the link on the menu section.
Food is an important part in any child’s development and it’s for this reason we cook on the premises, in the old fashioned traditional way. Our main cook is very experienced and offers a health balanced diet that includes plenty of vegetables and fresh fruit..
Our day starts from 7am (for parents who need an early start) and it should be noted we make no extra charge for this early start. Parents can choose from morning sessions, afternoon sessions, full day sessions or full week care.
We take the safety of children seriously because put truthfully, there’s no point in bolting the door after the problems happened. It’s for this reason we have installed CCTV recording both indoors and outdoors. Add to this, intercoms with the ability for staff to see and speak to who ever is out side, before releasing the outer gate locks. Our front door has an audible alarm; it’s designed to warn staff if a parent has left the door open. Certain fire exit doors also offer audible alarm warnings, just as an extra precaution. Our two gardens are fully enclosed with high fencing and high bolted gates. Follow all this up with car park flood lighting, emergency lighting and a modern fire alarm and you can begin to see just some of the ways we keep the children safe.
We are working hard to make Acre Wood a nursery that’s safe, fun, loving and affordable.
