About the employer

A Home from Home At New Moon Nursery our ethos is to provide a warm loving, homely environment, and you will get this feeling when you visit New Moon Nursery. Our nursery is small, so like a family our Educators know and understand one another well and they also know each one of our children inside and out. All our children from our babies to our oldest children see each other regularly and are supported to develop an understanding and respect for one another’s similarities and differences. Our nursery is calm and nurturing and our educators genuinely love and know each little personality, understanding the unique little quirks that make each one super special. This is so important to ensure that children feel safe, secure and happy. When children are settled and happy they absolutely thrive within our environment. Our management team and educators have extremely high expectations of our children in terms of their behaviour, learning to respect and tolerate one another, learning to be kind and considerate and learning to live and play alongside one another happily. We also have extremely high expectations of what our children can achieve by providing them with meaningful narratives to their play, teaching them new vocabulary and providing varied experiences through trips out of nursery or special visitors coming to nursery in order to support our children to learn understand new information.
