Oak Cottage Nursery has been a safe and fun environment for my son since he started... He has learned to be more sociable with other kids.. and the abundance of varied activities keeps him stimulated and happy …. my son goes to nursery every morning with a smile on his face.
Oak Cottage Nursery is such a fantastic nursery. It has a home from home feel and I feel everyone of the staff really care and know each and every child even if they are not in the same room. It feels like a big family and I have never felt so at ease leaving my children.
We aim to provide the community with a friendly, fun environment where children learn through exploration according to their individual needs in a welcoming and respectful environment. We are dedicated to supporting each and every family to give children the best start in life through parental involvement and inclusive practice. We aim to give children opportunities to learn through active and creative experiences indoors and out to develop their social skills and help them to flourish in all areas of their development.
"Children are happy, settled and confident. They make good progress from their starting points….Children develop positive attitudes towards learning and a willingness to give things a go."
"Staff are positive role models and children behave well and think of others."
