The development of your child during the infant years is so important, and we really understand that. Every day we explore new ways to expand your child’s experience and learning in a fun and stimulating way. We understand that this is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
Our day nurseries offer your child a friendly and homely environment with Fresh Nutritious Meals made from scratch on site. Our experienced and trained staff will care for and nurture your child through their exciting day.
When you leave your child at a Naturally Curious Childcare Day Nursery you can have complete peace of mind knowing your child is safe with loving and caring staff; that will treat your child as an individual.
Naturally Curious Childcare is a selection of 4 Curiosity Approach Day Nurseries with local family values at our core. We believe in providing children with opportuninties to promote Curiosity and Imagination throughout their day.
All of our settings are huge advocates of risky play and using real everyday authentic materials. It is important that children are able to take manageable risks in order to understand how to stay safe. Our children are trusted to use real items in their role play, giving them the vital skills to handle items such as ceramics with care and respect.
We encourage all children to dress for mess on nursery days. They will have ample opportunities for creativity throughout the day so that children are able to channel their inner artist! All of our settings provide free flow access all year round to enable children to have autonomy over their own play, experiencing all the seasons and elements that come with them... theres no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing!
Each of our nurseries has a designated baby room with private sleep room with qualified staff who will follow your child's home routine, meaning consistency both at home and nursery. We are an all inclusive setting meaning we provide all your branded nappies, wipes, creams, formular milk, bottles. Allowing you as busy parents to leave home in the morning knowing everything is already taken care of.
The best way to understand how we work is to come and see for yourself. We would love for you to come and spend time in our settings to understand our ethos and our child centred approach.
I cannot fault Pebbles in any way shape or form. My daughter has been going to Pebbles since summer 2014 and she loves it! The staff changes which took place approx 1 year ago have significantly improved the nursery and I think the Ofsted report reflects the hard work and dedication of the staff. All team members are fully engaged and you can genuinely tell they have real affection for the children that attend - my daughter certainly has a soft spot for her key worker. They provide a fun and secure setting for my daughter and provide healthy and nutritious meals, courtesy of their amazing cook with the odd treat when its someones birthday. I also like that the staff consistently keep me up to date with my daughters progress whether that's when I go to collect her or through Tapestry. Nothing is too much trouble even if I'm asking the same questions. I feel involved in my daughters attendance and what is going on whether its an up and coming event such as Sports Day or a quick catch up. I love knowing that my child is happy for the time she is at Pebbles and genuinely feel that she will miss it terribly come September 2016 but I also feel that her readiness to start 'big school' is mostly down to the amazing staff. I genuinely cannot praise the girls there enough. When we were having a few toddler hiccups, my daughters key worker took the time to sit down and discuss some things we could try both at nursery and at home. The improvement although wasn't an overnight fix, the longer term outcome has been extremely positive. If anyone is looking for childcare, I would strongly and highly recommend you make an appointment with the team at Pebbles, you won't regret it and I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done for my child for the past 18 months or so.
