About the employer

Our Stanmore nursery is set in a Grade II listed building in the heart of Stanmore Broadway. The nursery benefits from excellent outdoor facilities and large open plan rooms. All rooms are monitored by CCTV and parents can ask to watch this from the reception area to ensure their little one has settled.

Our dedicated staff team ensure all the children in our care are kept busy by offering a range of activities every day. Our four base rooms (Babies, Pre-Toddlers, Toddlers and Pre-School) have been designed with lots of different areas to ensure everyone has plenty of room to play, learn, explore and have fun in. Our large garden is in constant use – the children love nothing more than being out in the fresh air with their friends. All children take part in weekly Gymboree and Tiny Mites music sessions and our Pre-School children also have a weekly French lesson. Regular walks around the area are enjoyed by all – Stanmore Library is a particular favourite and the children can often be seen enjoying the great activities that the library team offer.

Keeping everyone busy means we need to make sure all of the children enjoy wholesome home-cooked meals and snacks every day. Jackie our chef has a wealth of experience and makes sure every dietary requirement is met!
