About Us

Our aim

At Daisy Chain Nursery we create a home from home environment for the children using natural resources and objects that may be found at home. This supports the children in settling into nursery quickly. We create environments where children, families and team members can learn and grow together.

– We aim to create an environment where all children and families are supported and their similarities and differences are celebrated.

– We believe all children should have a safe and secure learning environment where they can be loved and nurtured by familiar people who are able to support their emotional well being.

– We aim to offer access to an environment where children can learn and develop at their own pace according to their individual needs and interests.

– We aim to work alongside families as core educators ensuring the best care and support is available for their children.

Our Team

The team at Daisy Chain is very diverse with a mixture of experience levels, ages and personalities. They are friendly and outgoing and are always willing to help with anything they can or point you in the right direction. All of our team are fully dedicated to giving the best care and attention to the children whilst pushing the boundaries of expectation to ensure they are steadily working towards their early learning goals and providing them with the best possible base for the future. We provide an environment of continuous learning where training is regularly updated and refreshed to ensure the best possible knowledge for all of our staff members. We encourage our team to reach for their highest goals supporting many of them through higher education and beyond.

Our Children

All children are welcome at Daisy Chain and differences are supported and celebrated by all. We encourage all of our children to learn about each other and tell others about themselves to promote equality and diversity within the community. The children are supported in understanding basic rules and boundaries in a friendly helpful manner and are encouraged to share their skills and knowledge with others. The children and families at Daisy Chain often start as strangers and leave as friends.

We have a sensory room for use by under 2’s children and also a construction room for the older children to use. We have a separate room for babies under 2 years which has its own milk kitchen and nappy change area.

Our Partners

Spanish Pete attends the nursery every week to help teach the children Spanish and Jumping beans attend to teach the Toddlers about physical play and healthy exercise. We also have a Yoga teacher attending the site to support the babies in being physical and enhancing listening and attention skills.

We work with health visitors and other professionals to ensure the children are getting the most out of their learning and we create plans together to ensure we are supporting them effectively. Our most important partners are the parents and carers of our children. We work closely with our families, offering help and support and sometimes just and ear to listen. We gain vital information from them that helps us in getting to know the children as much as possible and enables us to further their learning and development at nursery in line with what they are doing at home.
