About the employer

Our vision is to provide a beautiful and nurturing environment where children can be individuals; enabling them to develop as confident, enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. “All children thrive and make consistently outstanding progress in their learning and development, as the nursery provides an exceptionally stimulating well- thought out educational programme.” (Ofsted - Outstanding, 2019) Westfield House has its origins starting as a childminders within a family home, with demand seeing it flourish organically into a thriving nursery still within a homely setting. Our team is highly qualified and work with passion and commitment. “It is evident that the whole staff team is very committed to making sure children achieve at the highest level. Highly developed ways of planning are in place, taking account of each child's individual needs and specific interests. The excellent recording of the quality of teaching and children's progress ensure that all achievements are outstanding.” (Ofsted - Outstanding, 2019) We care for children aged 0-12 years. This variety in ages offers a wonderfully rich and diverse environment for your child. Children are encouraged to play and explore; to be active learners; and to think critically. Resources and activities are tailored to your child’s needs and interests, and the children are involved in choosing and planning activities. Every day is planned to be varied, whilst also following the routine to the day of meal and sleep times. Activities are tailored to your child’s interest and developmental needs. We know the best way for children to learn is through play, so whilst they enjoy the freedom to explore and create their own play, we have focused activities and special “invitations to play” throughout the day.
