About Us

Our Nursery

The nursery has been established for approximately 40 years and is privately owned and managed by Anita Francis. A purpose built construction standing in its own secure garden in the village of South Wonston approximately 4 miles to the north of Winchester (accessible just off the A34)

The nursery follows the Early Years Foundation Stage. The staff ratio is 1:8 for 3+ year olds and 1:4 for 2 year olds with all the staff either fully qualified or working towards their qualification.  All staff at the setting has experience of working with children in this age group.

Before a child starts at nursery we are happy to visit them at home, this builds a trust between the child and practitioner and can help the child to settle more quickly into the nursery setting. We are happy for you to visit the nursery and stay with your child if you feel this is beneficial.  We recommend you bring your child and leave them for a short time, so they understand that you leave and return to them.  If your child has a comforter of any sort (cuddly toy, blanket, etc.) we recommend your child to bring it with them.  We recognise parents know their children best and will be guided by you for as long as it takes for your child to settle. We will assign each child a key person, information about this role is explained overleaf.

We support all children with additional needs and work with you and outside agencies to best support them.

We are all known to both parents and children by our first names and look forward to welcoming you and your child into the nursery.
