What our families say
At First Day Nursery we strive to provide real experiences and multi-sensory opportunities for our children to access throughout the day.
Where appropriate we avoid traditional shop-bought toys and use real objects and open-ended resources to extend children’s thinking and creativity.
We understand the importance of independence and support our children to make their own choices as well as encouraging them to care for our resources and environments. We strongly believe in sustainability and re-use and recycle resources where possible.
All of our staff have Continuous Professional Development (CPD) pathways in place and have regular supervisions to help them develop their professional practice. Part of our holistic approach is to look after the children’s as well as our staff’s emotional, social, intellectual, and physical wellbeing to deliver quality care for all.
