With so many available options, choosing a nursery for your child can be a difficult process. The right nursery must offer that magic combination of both quality education and practical considerations. Some of the key benefits of choosing Orchard Day Nursery are:
A warm, homely & nurturing environment
We provide a rich learning environment where children feel at home, loved and nurtured. We believe that children learn by ‘doing’ and our staff fully support and encourage them in their individual journeys of self-awareness and developmental growth, helping them become happy, confident children.
Open Plan Set Up
Our purpose-built nursery is open plan so all staff and children are always in view of one another. This enhances the sense of community and also further bolsters our safety and security procedures.
Large outside space
We have a well-planned outdoor garden enabling your children to have access to fresh air and a chance to engage in outdoor activities all year round.
Excellent quality equipment
Our nursery is furnished with the highest quality bespoke furniture, fittings and toys, with a large array of items from Community Playthings.
Key person for each child
We operate a ‘key person’ approach which ensures that each child has a specially assigned carer. This helps children settle in quickly and happily into nursery life, as well as have continuity in their care and parent communication.
Fresh meals, cooked onsite
All our meals are prepared fresh in our open plan kitchen and we encourage children to develop good eating habits rights from the beginning. We cater for most dietary requirements including fussy eaters!
Access to your child’s learning journey
Each of our children have a personal online learning journey on our ‘Tapestry’ portal which records photos, observations and comments building a record of their time at the Nursery. Parents have access to this portal to view and contribute to their children’s growth through the years.
Our central location, 2 minutes’ walk from the Kew Bridge train station means that busy parents can drop their kids and get straight to work. In addition, we also have a dedicated drop off / pick up area that provides a safe and convenient option to driving parents.
Our fees are fully inclusive of all meals, snacks, nappies and enrichment activities and are at no extra cost to our parents. Which means that the monthly fee is all you pay with no hidden extras.
