About Us

At Hand in Hand, we want parents and carers to have a friendly trusting relationship with the staff. We want to be true partners with you in your children’s care and education. Every child will be assigned a key-person who will be responsible for liaising with you and implementing the care of your child; in the event of their absence, each key-person has a buddy. We want you to be assured that your child is safe and secure.

We aim to ensure that all children will develop confidence and independence through making choices which will positively affect their learning and life decisions.

Termly reports and Open Days will provide opportunities for you and your child to speak to your key-person. Observations and assessments will take place throughout your child’s time at nursery, documenting your child’s learning and development whilst at nursery.

We provide a learning environment which is carefully planned to provide a variety of activities to meet each individual child’s learning needs:-

  • Promote positive outcomes for all children.
  • Develop children’s independence and autonomy.
  • Promote an all-inclusive environment.
  • Maintain a high standard of care and education.
  • Promote outdoor and physical play.
  • Provide balanced healthy snacks am and pm.
  • Employ friendly approachable qualified and dedicated staff.

I can't thank you all enough for the help with my son and in settling him in so quickly and with such ease. He has developed so much in the last term and socially has come on in leaps and bounds. That is absolute credit to all the staff. He loves coming to school and is happy and that is all that matters.
