Our Nurseries are both open between 7.30am and 6.00pm for 51 weeks each year, only closing for statutory Bank Holidays and a few days over the Christmas period.
Security & Access into Nursery
This aspect of our nurseries is always at the forefront of our minds and all of our nurseries have their own dedicated entrances. All entrances are fitted with security systems with additional security systems added to the main gated entrances to the Tawny, Barn and Snowy Owl nurseries at Toftwood and a touch pad telephone intercom system at our Scarning nursery.
Our Nursery is managed by a team of qualified, caring and experienced staff. Within our Tawny Owl baby Nursery we operate to a staffing ratio of 1 member of staff per 3 babies, our Snowy Owl Nurseries operates on a ratio of 1 member of staff to every 4 children and our Barn Owl Nurseries operates to a ratio of 1 member of staff to every 8 children. Within each nursery we employ a supervisor and senior nursery nurse and our all managers are both employed on a supernumary basis. We are delighted to inform you that the entire staff team employed at both Little Owls nurseries all hold a recognised childcare qualification with a minimum requirement of Level 3 up to Ba (Hons) Degree in Early Childhood Studies.
Our nurseries provide care for our children between the ages of 6 weeks to 5 years old. When leaving Nursery to commence to school, our parents have the option of placing their children within Hoots, our Breakfast, After School and Holiday Clubs. This is dependent on availability however; Little Owls children receive priority on all bookings.
